Twelve of the 40 members of Kano State House of Assembly have protested against the amendment of the Ramadan and Ram bonus law of the state by the Assembly. The House in Kano on Monday amended the law by making it optional for the state government to pay the bonus.
AlhajiAbdulwahab Garba, a Member of the Public Service Committee, made the view of the 12 known to newsmen after the House amended the law. ‘’The House had earlier amended the law and given approval for only civil servants on grade levels 01- 13 to benefit from the bonus.
‘’We had all agreed on this, why should the House turn around again and amend the law by making it now optional for the governor to pay?’’ he asked. He said the 12 legislators, including two from the ruling PDP, would support the workers if they chose to challenge the amended law in the court.
‘’The workers can go to court and challenge the House and we shall support the workers,’’ he said.
