The chairman, Niger State Civil Service Commission (CSC) Alhaji Shehu Galadima, has said that the commission is ready to crush the syndicates responsible for the presence of ghost workers in the state.
According to the chairman, those who inject ghost workers into the system operate in syndicates and should be made to face the wrath of the law instead of being protected by their communities.
He said this in an interview after receiving an award from the centre for ethics, value and self-orientation for 2017/18, Minna, yesterday. He insists that the commission is poised to end every form of scam and corrupt tendencies within the system for a better civil service.
The chairman of the commission however, stressed that, for the system to work well and be rid of corruption, there was the need for change of attitude from what it is to an honesty and sincere one. According to him, offenders should be made to face the wrath of the law instead of enjoying any protection that will encourage them.
He also emphasized the commission’s commitment to continue to track the inflow and outflow of civil servants in the state because it is only through proper tracking that the civil service could be rid of ghost workers.
The CSC chairman said that they operate in syndicates and that he was ready to exposed them and bring them to book. He attributed the activities of the ghost workers to the absence of core values.
He however appreciated the centre for the recognition and award, noting that the award will ginger him to do more and cause him to remain focused and continue to contribute positively to the growth and development of the society.
The executive director of the center, Salle Musa Yakubu, lamented the level of corruption in the country and disclosed that the centre has over 1,500 whistle blowers across the country determined to expose criminals anywhere in Nigeria.
He observed that 80 per cent of awards in Nigeria today are in the hands of criminals who are costumers of EFCC and other anti-corruption agencies.
