Sokoto local govt council reinstates 480 workers

Aliyu WamakkoSokoto North Local Government Council said on Saturday that it had reinstated no fewer than 480 workers who were sacked by the immediate past administration in the area.

The caretaker committee chairman of the council, Alhaji Aminu Ibrahim, said this at a news conference on his nine-month stewardship.

According to him, the affected staffers were sacked by the immediate past administration, adding that they were reinstated on compassionate grounds.

“They were reinstated by my administration to reduce restiveness and other problems associated with poverty and unemployment, ” he told newsmen.

Ibrahim said the reinstated workers were redeployed to the various departments of the local government council.

He said the action was aimed at complementing the efforts of the state government at providing the social services to the people of the state.

“There are always problems associated with laying-off workers and we will not abdicate from our duty of making our youths more productive,” he said.

He also told newsmen that the local government council attached priority to women and youths empowerment.
This, the chairman said, was to enable all the citizens of the area to contribute their quotas to the development of the area.

“It is always said that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop, which is always capable of causing breach of the peace,” Ibrahim said.
