How government official allegedly collected salaries of 300 workers every month in Bayelsa

Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has ordered the arrest of an official of a local government for collecting the salaries of 300 persons every month.

This was revealed by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Daniel Iworiso-Markson.

The commissioner made the revelation on Monday during the commencement of a town hall meeting on civil service reforms in Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.

According to the commissioner, who did not give the name of the errant official, the suspect is an Account Officer in a council in Bayelsa Central Senatorial District of the state.

He said the suspect was exposed during staff verification exercise in the LGA, and added that cumulatively the fraudulent officer was illicitly earning hundreds of millions of Naira per annum.

He said, “Recently, Governor Seriake Dickson had to order the arrest of an official of a council. He (the official) was collecting salaries of 300 people. Yearly, the officer fraudulently receives hundreds of millions of naira.

“That is in just one LGA and there are many places like that in the state. Some people are employed in the civil service today, yet there is no document in their files. Instead, they were employed with the affidavit. The same people who do not have any documents and qualifications are collecting salaries of Grade Level 14 workers and above.

“At the Bayelsa State Transport Company, you find a situation whereby you have about 180 drivers, but there are only five or six vehicles for them to drive. You can see the level of rot in the system. So, if we must be sincere to ourselves, we must all agree to join hands with the government to clean the mess in the system.”

He added, “Today, everywhere you go now, people talk of Bayelsa as a model. All these are because of the bold steps the Seriake Dickson-led administration has taken to redeem the state from payroll fraudsters and syndicates.”
