Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state says he has provided a comprehensive briefing to President Muhammadu Buhari on the rightsizing policy of the State Government and the steps taken so far to implement it.
The governor said that Kaduna State will seek accountability for the actions of the Nigeria Labour Congress in the state by setting up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the NLC strike and protest of May 2021.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, on Sunday, El-Rufai explains that the Kaduna state government is hiring over 10,000 staff because rightsizing obliges the government to continuous recruitment of teachers, doctors, nurses and other qualified staff to provide vital services.
The Governor says he assures President Buhari that Kaduna state government is determined not to allow a repeat of the pains, economic losses and the restraints of freedom that the NLC inflicted on the people of Kaduna State.
Recalling the reconciliation meeting between Kaduna state government officials and the NLC held in Abuja on May 20th, El-Rufai explains that the State Executive Council has already communicated to the Minister of Labour that it cannot approve the agreements reached at the meeting between the state government and the NLC pertaining its rightsizing policy.
