Governor Akeredolu sacks civil servants for receiving double salaries

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu has ordered the dismissal of civil servants for receiving double salaries from the state government.

Akeredolu gave the order while receiving the report of the Committee for Verification, Scrutinisation and Clean-up of the state payroll on Wednesday July 20. 

Though the number of the affected workers was not disclosed, Governor Akeredolu also directed all ministries, departments and parastatals in the state to stop recruitment under any guise until the salary verification committee has concluded its assignment.

“We have an over-bloated workforce, and undoubtedly, I am sure there are many ghost workers. Those who are receiving double salaries, apart from recovering the money from them, I am directing the Head of Service to get them dismissed. They must serve as a deterrent to others.”
