Kano indigenes should get more federal jobs than other states
“Kano has a population triple or four times of some states, therefore, should be given a higher consideration in terms of employment.”
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje has called on President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime to increase Kano’s employment quota in the federal government’s employment.
Specifically, he asked the Federal Character Commission to give the state a much higher consideration in its employment formula due to what Mr Ganduje called Kano’s high population.
Buttressing his claim, Mr Ganduje pointed out, “Kano has a population triple or four times of some states, therefore, should be given a higher consideration in terms of employment.
“We have 44 local government areas. We have 484 wards, 24 members of the House of Representatives, and 40 members of the state assembly. None of the states in Nigeria has such a structure. In fact, we are the biggest democracy in Nigeria.”
The governor stated during a courtesy visit the Executive Chairman of the FCC, Muhibba Dankaka.
“I think, since there is no public outcry, I believe you are doing very well in the commission.”
The pressure falls on the FCC. But, I am happy. No state is complaining of marginalisation at the moment.”
