The Kaduna State Government has dismissed 4,042 workers across different local government areas for diverse reasons.

This sacking was confirmed Tuesday by the state Commissioners for Local Government and Chieftancy Affairs, Alhaji Jafaru Sani,  saying the disengagement of the 4,042 was across the 23 local government areas of the state.

Sani told a news conference in Kaduna that the exercise was part of the ongoing restructuring of the local government system for effective service delivery.

He also said that the restructuring was designed to strengthen the local government system to carry out developmental projects and programmes.

He said that 3,159 staff among those disengaged had put in 10 years and were retired while the remaining 893 had their jobs terminated.

He explained that the retired staff would be paid their November salary including three months’ salary in lieu of notice while their pension would be worked out by their pension administrators.

Sani added that those whose appointments were terminated would equally be paid their November salary, one month salary in lieu of notice and gratuity according to the civil service rule.

“It is a known fact that the LGAs were overburdened by redundant and unproductive staff who are contributing nothing to the development of the councils.
