The Niger State Government has screened out over 2,000 illegal workers from the civil service following a final submission by the Salary Management Committee set up by Governor Abubakar Sani Bello.

While addressing newsmen on Thursday, the Chairman of the Committee who is also Commissioner for Works and Infrastructural Development, Engr. Ibrahim Pantigi, at the post-State Executive Council briefing at the Government House, said several millions were discovered to have been going into some fictitious spending in Ministries, Departments and Agencies across the state.

Pantigi explained that out of the remaining 26,387 workers it had, only 23,624 are genuine, adding that they would be captured in the civil servants data base.

He added: “After conducting the final screening exercise to further verify the staff on government’s payroll, we discovered 2,764 have different names, using different banks with the same BVN being paid salaries.

“The report of the committee was out of 26,000 benchmark given and only 23,624 were cleaned and cleared to have met the requirements as Civil Servants.”

Pantigi disclosed further that 191 pending cases may scale through, while 477 workers are placed on hold as they couldn’t produce either their first employment letter or other documents.

It should be noted that about 36,000 names of civil servants was presented to the committee when it started the screening.

It was brought down to 27,000 and again to 25,000 and now 23,624.

Pantigi said out of the 1,230 cases rejected some are either dead, retired or on impersonation, adding that 603 persons are yet to surface.

Furthermore, he said a Six-Man Review Committee Chaired by the Commissioner for Planning, Mamman Musa, has been set up by Bello to look into the recommendations of the Salary Management Committee.
