The retrenchment of the Kaduna State workers came four days after the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, said Nigeria was in huge financial trouble.
Justifying its decision to lay off workers, the Kaduna State Government said what it had been receiving “from FAAC (the Federation Account Allocations Committee) since the middle of 2020, like most other sub-nationals, can barely pay salaries and overheads.’’
