Niger governor, deputy take 30% salary cut as coronavirus hits economy
Worried by the rise in banditry in parts of the state in the last two months, Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello has declared an all-out war on the armed criminals terrorising the state.

Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger on Tuesday ordered a 30 per cent slash in the salaries and allowances of all political officers in the state.

Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Ahmed Matane, in a statement in Minna, said that the directive was “with immediate effect”.
“Those to be affected by the order include the governor, his deputy, commissioners, special advisers and all other political appointees,” the statement said.

It said that the “temporary” slash was in view of the economic situation occasioned by the Coronavirus pandemic.

“Government will transparently resume full payment of salaries and allowances when the economic situation improves,” the statement stated and quoted the governor as regretting the inconvenience the reduction might cause affected persons.
