Gov. Buni deducts Yobe civil servants’ salaries to repair schools Boko Haram destroyed

Governor Mai Mala Buni’s government says it will deduct 10 per cent from civil servants’ salaries to revive Yobe’s education sector.


The Commissioner for Home Affairs, Information and Culture, Muhammad Lamin, announced this at a press briefing on Monday in Damaturu.

The Yobe government explained that the decision was taken to ginger collective action to revive the sector ravaged by a decade-long insurgency.

He noted that the decade-long insurgency had impacted negatively on the entire lives of the citizenry and the educational system and structures in the state.


Mr Buni had, on November 9, 2021, inaugurated a 21-member State Education Appeal Fund Raising Committee to mobilise funds to revitalise the education sector.

“Apart from reaching out to people outside government, we feel that civil servants in the state should also give their modest contribution to the programme by contributing 10 per cent of their November basic salary. By this briefing, therefore, civil servants are informed that the deduction will be for only the month of November 2021,” Mr Buni had pointed out. “In this regard, the government is appealing to civil servants in the state to heartily support the government in her bid to rescue our state from the catastrophe of educational decay.”

At the inception of his administration, the governor had declared a state of emergency in the education sector.
