el-Rufai Appoints New 77 District Heads

Date:

The Kaduna State Government on Saturday announced the appointment of District Heads for the 77 restructured districts.
The appointments follow the conclusion of checks and assessments of the 230 nominees forwarded by the 32 emirates and chiefdoms in the state. This step consolidates the state’s return in 2017 to the 77-district structure that existed prior to 2001.
As part of its policy of reducing the the size of the government, the Kaduna State Government disclosed in June 2017 that the state was returning to the 77-district structure that existed prior to 2001. The government reached the decision after due consideration by the State Executive Council of the report of a committee that examined district and village administration in the state.
A meeting of the State Executive Council on 24th April 2017 had concluded that no scientific criteria or strategic consideration could be found to justify the expansion in the number of districts from 77 to 390. Instead, political expediency appeared to have motivated this proliferation that imposed the burden of paying personnel of the 313 extra districts on the 23 local government councils. This proliferation also severely reduced the prestige and respect attached to the office of district head.
On 25th April 2017, Malam Nasir El-Rufai consulted the State Council of Chiefs which requested two weeks to deliberate on the matter and submit a report. The State Council of Chiefs eventually communicated its support for the restructuring of districts via a letter dated 8th May 2017. This letter forwarded the resolutions of a meeting the State Council of Chiefs held in Kaduna on 4th May 2017.
