Christmas Message by Malam Nasir El-Rufai, Governor of Kaduna State, December 2021

I wish to facilitate with the Christian faithful on the special occasion of Christmas. This festival celebrates celebrates the birth of the Prince of Peace, and the timeless values of compassion, love, tolerance and forgiveness that the birth and example of Jesus Christ so profoundly teach. Christ was not limited by the circumstances of His birth. He set for us an example of the power of faith, providing an assurance that we can be better than our current circumstances.

We celebrate Christmas in difficult times. Despite the currents that buffet us, we should keep hope alive as we honour the Prince of Peace. Let us commit to peace and goodwill towards all. We can all, as Christians as well as Muslims, emulate the example of Jesus Christ. We can strive to be better than we are today, combining our faith with exemplary conduct.

We pray to God Almighty that the blessings and lessons of Christmas will spread all through our State and move us to be better people. The festive aspects of our celebration of Christmas may be limited by the continuing threat of Covid-19. But as people of faith, we know that God’s love is unlimited; that amidst the trials and tribulations that confront us, the Almighty still avails us many reasons for joy in His Grace and gratitude for His protections.

Every citizen has a duty of personal responsibility as part of the collective action that is essential to curbing the spread of Covid-19. I appeal to all Kaduna residents to comply with the current public health regulations and practice personal responsibility by wearing our facemasks, observing social distance, washing our hands regularly with soap and water and avoiding large gatherings.

I call on all Kaduna residents to join hands with us to make our State peaceful and safe for everyone by upholding peace and harmony.

May the good Lord continue to protect us and bestow His grace upon us.

Merry Christmas and God bless you all.


Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, OFR

Kaduna State Residents Urged to Celebrate Christmas Season with Personal Responsibility

The Kaduna State Ministry of Health felicitates with the residents of the state as the Christmas celebrations begin. Given the persistence of Covid-19 virus, the public health guidance from the Ministry is that every resident of the state should assume utmost personal responsibility.  This includes strict compliance with prevention protocols such as wearing face-masks, observing physical distance as much as possible, washing hand regularly with soap and running water, or using sanitisers, avoiding crowded spaces, especially indoors, and practising respiratory hygiene. These non-pharmaceutical measures can be safely and easily practised to reduce the risk of infection, severe illness, and fatalities. Places of worship, recreation, restaurants, shops event centres and hotels are reminded to kindly prioritise compliance with public health protocols.


Covid-19 remains a dangerous virus, with many mutations, that are putting fresh pressures on public health systems across the world. The Kaduna State Covid-19 Taskforce has since the latter half of 2020 decided that the preventive management of the pandemic in the state had to be based on citizens exercising personal responsibility in the safe pursuit of livelihoods, worship, travel, recreation and other aspects of everyday life. This continues to be the case.


The state has also launched a campaign of mass vaccination to increase the number of citizens that have taken the approved Covid-19 vaccines. Already, more than 450,000 residents have received at least one vaccine dose, but this number needs to grow to increase immunity levels and help reduce the risk of severe illness when infection occurs. The Ministry urges residents to visit primary and secondary health centres and designated private hospitals to get these vaccines. Citizens that have taken their first two doses of the vaccine are eligible for booster jabs six months after their second dose of AstraZeneca vaccination. The vaccines are free of charge and anyone who asks members of the public for payment under any guise should be reported to the authorities.


The Kaduna State Ministry of Health wishes the entire residents of the state, happy and safe holidays, and best wishes for 2022. #Stay Safe!

Civil servants will this month receive bonuses ranging from 100% of monthly pay for junior civil servants to 30% for senior civil servants.
A statement from Sir Kashim Ibrahim House explained that the end of year bonus is part of the state government’s efforts to boost morale and enhance the welfare of civil servants.
Under the scheme, workers from Grade Levels 1-7 will be paid 100% of their monthly salary as bonus. Middle level civil servants from Grade Level 8-13 will get 40%, while senior officers on Grade Level 14 and above will receive 30% of their monthly earning.
