The latest development, according to the Akeredolu, was to serve as a deterrent to other workers.

Akeredolu made this known on Wednesday while receiving the report of the Committee for Verification, Scrutinization and Clean-up of the state payroll.

There was no specific number regarding the affected workers and it was also not disclosed.

Akerodolu added that the state workforce is over-bloated and he is sure about having many ghost workers hence there’s a need to stop recruitment under any guise until the salary verification committee has concluded its assignment.

He said: “We have 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 deterrent to others.”
