Kano to bailout LGs with N1.2bn for salaries

Kano State government has released N1.2 billion from its internally generated revenue to the 44 local government councils in the state to augment their federal allocations, so that they can pay their workers salary for the month of June.
The state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje explained that the move became necessary as the declining monthly allocation to the councils from the Federation Account is no longer sufficient to pay salaries, let alone address other development issues.
He recalled that during the immediate past administration, the state government used to have a balance of N4 – N5 billion after paying salary monthly, pointing out that with the dwindling capital receipts from the Federal Government now, his government is compelled to look inwards in order to remain afloat.
To closely coordinate its earning and expenditure therefore, Governor Ganduje asserted that the Single Treasury Account is indispensable for his government, noting that although it would affect tertiary institutions in the state, it would not put them in a disadvantaged position.
