Kano — Kano state Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso has pledged to pay ram bonuses to civil servants before the upcoming Eid-el Kabir, according to a statement by his spokesman Halilu Ibrahim Dantiye.
Workers at the lower cadre of the service would, according to the announcement, receive higher bonuses than those at the higher level.
"Those [workers] on Grade Levels 1-6 will get N15,000 while those on Grade Levels 7-12 will receive N12,000.
"[Workers on] Level 13 and above will get N10,000. This is to correct the previous arrangement under which senior workers enjoyed more money than low salary earners", the governor reportedly said.
Kwankwaso made the pledge during a meeting with Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members from all the 44 local government areas of the state.
Also, the governor gave appointment letters to a total of 1,003 indigenes of the state who were recently recruited into the civil service.
In his remarks at the occasion, Kwankwaso said his administration was committed to the overhaul of the civil service for better service delivery.
