But clarifying the issue, the Deputy Governor of Kaduna State Arc Barnabas Bala Bantex in a written speech he presented at Ham Day on Saturday, March 26, 2016 said the traditional institutions are over-staffed.

He said even though the payment of traditional rulers is a responsibility of local government councils which had in the past allowed the payroll to balloon to unsustainable levels, he added that the state government is going to correct the issue.  

I wish to address the issue of payments to the traditional institution. This is a responsibility of local government councils which had in the past allowed the payroll to balloon to unsustainable levels,” Bantex said.

The Deputy Governor added: “Traditional institutions are over-staffed, and the processes ongoing to correct the issue have led to the delays. We apologize for this delay, but I believe that it is absolutely necessary to resolve the personnel.”
