Kano State Abolishes BSc, HND Dichotomy, Implements Minimum Wage

Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje
Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that his government had abolished the dichotomy between degree and Higher National Diploma (HND) holders in the state.

Ganduje, made this known during the May Day celebrations held at Sani Abacha stadium on Wednesday, adding that it is an effort to enhance the welfare of civil servants in the state.
The governor also said that the state had implemented the N30,000 minimum wage recently signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari, saying it is a done deal in the state.

He said his administration had taken all the necessary steps for implementing the new salary structure.
“On the issue of minimum wage, we know we were in a difficult situation but you too know you are in a very difficult situation,” he said.
“We know there is no money in government, we know you too are hungry. We know you are disturbed, we know you are worried and we know you are destabilized and we know you are not in healthy position as far as present salary scale is concerned.
“Therefore, I assure you, we can pay the minimum wage as signed by Mr.President. We only appeal to you during the negotiation, there should be fairness and there should be a practical look in to the issue. But we assure you that, the issue of N30,000 minimum wage in Kano state is a done deal.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we will like you to put in your best. What we are looking for is a symbolic relationship between government and the workers, between employers and employees.”
Speaking earlier, Ado Minjibir, the state chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), commended the governor for ensuring that civil servants get their salaries as and when due.
