PAP discovers 400 duplicated names in payroll
The Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP), yesterday, disclosed that it discovered 400 cloned names in the payroll of its programme, describing the discovery as bad omen to society.
A source close to the Interim Administrator of PAP, Col. Milland Dixion Dikio (rtd.), revealed that the discovery led to further investigation of the over 3, 000 accounts that have been receiving the N65, 000 monthly stipend.
The source told The Guardian that some of the accounts were fake and fraudulently used to siphon funds meant for original ex-agitators.
“Immediately the investigation was ordered, the amnesty office stopped the stipends of the accounts undergoing probe. Some of the accounts had been cleared and their owners will receive their stipends.
But there will be another probe to discover the identity of persons receiving monies through identified fake accounts,” he said.
He said Dikio was determined to sanitise the system to ensure that resources meant for the Amnesty programme were spent on real and verifiable ex-agitators, but alleged that some contractors were funding propaganda against Dikio, because he resisted pressures on him to pay them for jobs not executed.
