APC wins Kano council poll

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has emerged victorious in the  Local Government  Council Eections held in Kano  State on Saturday.

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has reverted to the former minimum wage of N18,000 for its workers.

In an interview yesterday, spokesperson to the governor, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, said the state government has also stopped the payment of N30,000 minimum wage to its workers.

Tanko-Yakasai said the reason for the action is due to the recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

He added that the state is unable to continue paying N30,000 because what the state is getting now as a government has reduced.

“The state government has reverted to the initial minimum pay due to the recession. What we are getting now as a government has reduced, and we can’t afford to pay the N30,000 minimum wage,” he told reporters.
