FG Rakes In N200 Billion From Ghost Workers In 2016

The elimination of 50,000 ghost workers on payroll saves the Federal Government nothing less than N200 billion in 2016.

Speaking with State House correspondents

This was confirmed on Tuesday, by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, when he was spoke with State House correspondents.

He said 11 persons championing the syndicate of ghost workers have been handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to him; “The flagship program of the Muhammadu Buhari administration to rid the system of fraud and instill good governance is on course. Through a notable initiative, the Efficiency Unit of the Federal Ministry of Finance, the government has embarked on the continuous auditing of the salaries and wages of government departments.

“When the Committee was constituted in February 2016, federal government monthly salary bill was N151 billion excluding pensions. Now the monthly salary warrant is N138 billion, excluding pensions. Which means that the government is making a monthly saving of about N13 billion. That is from February 2016 to date.

“The pension bill was 15.5billion monthly as at February. Now it is down to N14.4 billion, which means average monthly saving is about N1.1 billion.”
