The Kaduna State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has rejected Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s four-day workweek for civil servants in the state, alleging a hidden agenda in the policy.

On Monday, Mr El-Rufai had announced that the state government would begin implementing the transitional arrangement in the public service starting from December 1, 2021.

Reacting through a statement on Tuesday, the state chairman of CAN, Rev. John Joseph-Hayab, lamented that citizens of the state had been subjected to pains by the governor’s “unpopular policies”.

Mr Hayab, therefore, advised civil servants in the state not to celebrate the policy yet until they were convinced that there was no hidden agenda behind it.

He said: “Workers must be sure that the policy is not aimed at reducing their salaries.

“They must be convinced that the government will not wake up one day with another shocking news of salary reduction since the five day working days have been reduced to four.”

“How can a state that is not secured talk about giving workers time for agriculture and be with family when bandits move about freely, terrorising people in their homes, on the farms, and on the highways!

“How can one spend time with family when you have nothing to feed them or provide for their basic needs?.”
