Kano state government says it has slashed March salaries of political appointees by 50 per cent due to dwindling resources.

Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba said in a statement that the decision affected the governor, deputy governor, commissioners, special advisers, senior special assistants and special assistants.

He said the action was due to a shortfall in revenue accruing to the state from the federation account.

Muhammad Garba said at the local government level, the salary slash also affected the chairmen, vice-chairmen, elected and supervisory councillors, advisers and secretaries of councils.
