Nasarawa recovers N60m from verification
The Nasarawa State government said it had successful blocked N60 million from running into the hands of “ghost workers” in local councils in the state.
Chairman of Lafia Local Council, who also doubled as Chairman of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), Aminu Muazu, disclosed this to newsmen in his office yesterday in Lafia.
The ALGON chairman said that the verification was necessitated due to the inability of nine local councils to pay workers’ June salaries despite receiving allocations directly from the Federal Government.
Muazu, who attributed the menace of ghost workers and other illegal activities by some unpatriotic members of staff to the recent delay in the payment of June salaries of local councils’ members of staff, said measures had been put in place to fish out the perpetrators and sanction them to clean up the system.
