Zamfara Govt declares clampdown on workers receiving multiple salaries

Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara has pledged to decisively deal with workers receiving multiple salaries in the state civil service.

The governor made the disclosure on Wednesday while speaking at the 2024 Workers’ Day celebration held in Gusau.

He advised them to support the present administration in its determination to sanitise the state civil service and charged them to shun all forms of corruption in view of the fact that the state workforce was overloaded with multiple salary collectors.

“I am not impressed with workers’ take home as well as the working condition in the state, but I must first of all, ascertain the actual and genuine figure of workers, to be able to decide what to pay as minimum wage.

“Therefore, Labour should continue to bear with us and support our policies and programmes to achieve better condition for the workers,” he said.

The governor assured that his administration was in the process of authenticating the real staff of both state and local government, assuring that once it finishes with ghost workers, multiple salary earners and other irregularities, a new minimum wage would be announced.

“Our policies are not meant to witch-hunt anybody but we are determined to ensure good reform in the public service and other sectors of the economy.

“So far, we have paid a total of N3.841 billion for the settlement of gratuity and backlog of pension for both state and local government employees.

“This will continue until all backlog of pension and gratuity are paid completely,” he stated.
