El-Rufai 2014 portrait_7_510x350The newly appointed interim Local Government chairman for Kudan Local Government in Kaduna State, DaudaIliya Abba, has reduced his salary and allowances by 50%.

Abba, who was sworn in last week by Kaduna State governor, NasirElrufai made the announcement in a statement personally signed by him.

He is perhaps the first and only local government chairman to cut his salary and allowances by half, taking a cue from the state governor who had in the first week of assuming office slashed his salary by 50%.

According to Abba, the decision to slash his salary is a cost cutting measure which has become imperative considering the economic realities of Kudan Local Government Area.

The statement reads:

I, DaudaIliya Abba, interim Chairman of Kudan Local Government in Kaduna State, hereby announce that henceforth my salary and allowances have been cut downward by 50%.

This cost-cutting measure has become imperative considering the economic realities of Kudan Local Government Area.

I also appeal to members of my team, particularly the interim councillors to emulate this collective sacrifice as exemplified by our leaders, the President MuhammaduBuhari and our state Governor, Mal. Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.

This will go a long way in resuscitating our dilapidated infrastructures, as this administration will no longer tolerate wastage and leakages of public funds at the detriment of the overriding interest of the majority that we are here to serve.

In addition, Kudan will lead the way in enhancing transparency in the way the Local Government resources are being spent.

As a first step, we shall be publishing all our proceeds in terms of allocation and other accrued revenues regularly.

How these proceeds are being spent, shall always be subjected to public knowledge. As we are in the public service to serve the public. Therefore, public funds must be subjected to public scrutiny.

In the end, Kaduna will be great again.

Thank you.


Dauda I. Abba

Interim Chairman, Kudan LGA
