FG sanctions workers taking salaries after relocating abroad



From  JIDAUNA YANUNG, Abuja   

PRESIDENT Bola Tinubu has directed that all civil servants drawing salaries from the government after relocating abroad be sanctioned and made to refund the money.

He also directed  that the supervisors and department heads of the culprits must also be sanctioned for aiding and abetting the fraud under their watch.

The president gave the directives recently at the awards night organised by the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation to mark this years’ Service Week.

Represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator George Akume, Tinubu expressed dismay over the attitude of the ghost workers and ordered for their immediate sanction.

He noted that while measures were being taken to address the problem, he called for collective efforts to ensure that the culprits are brought to book.

He, however, acknowledged the challenges in the civil service sector and stressed his determination to address them for optimal performance.
