The Osun State Government, Friday, said it discovered the existence of seventy-one ghost workers on the its payroll during the last screening exercise carried out among ministries, agencies and departments of government and public secondary schools.
The Permanent Secretary, Local Government Service Commission and the Chairman of Personnel and Job Audit Committee on MDAs and Secondary Schools, Mr. Dayo Olaluwoye, made the disclosure when submitting the final report of his Committee to the State Head of Service, Mr. Sunday Owoeye.
Olaluwoye explained that out of the Seventy-one ghost workers, thirty-nine were deceased while thirty two were supposed living individuals, disclosing that the ghost workers have been collecting salaries without coming to the office.
However, he expressed gratitude to workers for their cooperation during the period of the exercise.
In his remarks, the Head of Service, Mr. Yinka Owoeye, commended the Committee for redeeming the image of the Civil Service by doing a thorough job while discharging the duty assigned to them.
Owoeye, who observed that the MDAs and Secondary Schools Committee was just one of the four Committees set up for the screening exercise at the time, said that the use of Civil Servants for the screening exercise had saved the Government lots of money compared to the use of Consultants.
The Head of Service emphasised that screening of workers is an on-going process, adding that those that had issues with their certificates should endeavour to clear themselves.
He then charged all public officers in the State to be revenue collectors in their respective areas of operation in order to revive the economy of the state.
