Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has reduced the number of commissioners in the state from 23 to 13.

El-Rufai also scrapped the state Ministry of Information, Ministry of Lands, Survey and Country Planning and the Ministry of Rural and Community Development.

This was disclosed via a statement released by the governor’s media aide, Samuel Aruwan.

It reads:

“El-Rufa’i has repeatedly stated that the Kaduna State Government must direct more of its resources to delivering public services and as such, the move requires a reduction in the proportion consumed by government.”

 “Each ministry will henceforth have its own public relations unit attached to the office of its chief executive. The realignment of mandates has also resulted in the emergence of two new departments.”

“The erstwhile Ministry of Lands, Survey and Country Planning are being moved to the Governor’s Office as a department. Similarly, the former Ministry of Rural and Community Development becomes a department in the Deputy Governor’s Office.”

El-Rufai had also earlier split his salary and the deputy governor’s by 50% in a bid to reduce the cost of governance in the state.
