Bayelsa: Panel to recommend workers' sack

The Bayelsa State Advisory Commit­tee on Public Service Reforms has said it will recommend the sack of civil servants indicted for absenteeism and wage bill fraud.

The Chairman of the committee and paramount ruler of Twon-Brass King­dom, King Alfred Diete-Spiff, who spoke to stakeholders in Brass Local Govern­ment Area of the state, said the ongoing reforms had shown that workers would be dropped from the service.

Diette-Spiff said: “Some workers have to be dropped. We cannot have people that do not work but are receiving salaries. We cannot have people whose names ap­pear in different payment vouchers.”

Spiff, who is also the Chairman of the Bayelsa State Council of Traditional Rul­ers, noted that local government funds were meant for developmental projects and not for payment of salaries.
