Out of the 765 graduates recently engaged to work in the Kano Internal Revenue Service (KIRS), about 300 have reportedly dumped the job just three months after their engagement as revenue officials.
One of the newly engaged graduates that dumped the employment, said the service has failed to fulfill some of the promises made to them in regards to the service’s salary scale, stressing that most of them where cajoled to leave their jobs and accept the tax generation work only to be paid N35, 000.
“We were told that they will offer us a better salary package than what we were earning at our former working places. However, after we have concluded all bureaucratic engagements, we ended up being paid N35, 000 as graduates.
This is why about 300 of us have quit, because with the present economic huddles; it is unwise for one to deceive oneself that he or she can leave on that stipends,” lamented the former tax collector.
A source at the KIRS, confirmed that a substantial number of those recently engaged have dumped the job, without notification.
The Kano Internal Revenue Service Public Relations Officer, explained that no one can make comments on behalf of the Service Executive Chairman, Sani Abubakar Dambo, who is currently out of the state for Lesser Hajj.
Some of the graduates then described the salary of N35,000 per month as not just meagre, but contrary to what was earlier promised.
