Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State has ordered immediate release of August 2018 salaries to state and local government workers.
In a statement, the state Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, said the measure was to enable civil servants and their families enjoy the Eid-el-Fitr festivities.

He expressed the hope that the workers would reciprocate the good gesture and be more dedicated in the discharge of their duties.
The commissioner also rejoiced with the civil servants ahead of the festival and urged them to pray for the peace and progress of the state and the nation.
