The Kano State Governor-elect, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, said as part of the efforts to bridge human capital gap in the State, the incoming government will establish a training institute for the civil servants to acquire knowledge on the global best practices.
Engr. Abba made the disclosure on Monday in a congratulatory message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, to the workers on the occasion of the International Workers’ Day 2023.
He said workers are the key to delivering good governance under any democratic dispensation, as such, they deserve to be commended for thier sacrifice to humanity.
Engr. Abba noted that Kano workers in the State Civil Service and private sector have demonstrated audacity in the face of their diminishing purchasing powers to maintain high standards of service delivery and productivity amid global economic hardship despite the neglect by the outgoing administration.
Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf assured the State civil servants of Improved welfare including prompt payment of salaries and pension by the incoming administration of the NNPP.
Engr. Abba said the leadership of the incoming government is quite aware of the problems facing the State civil servants including unfavourable working conditions and inadequate manpower which have been noted for redress.
“As contained in our blueprint, we will establish Training Institute for the civil servants to be up to date with the global best practices.”
On the current job racketeering and nepotism in staff recruitment which the outgoing government is recklessly conducting, the Governor-elect said his administration will revisit all the wrong doings and ensure a credible recruitment process is placed for all citizens with the required qualifications to compete.
“We shall not allow the civil service to be misguided by corruption and nepotism, we must check the job racketeering in Kano state as a priority to restore the lost glory of the service,” he said.
