No fewer than 89 medical doctors have been uncovered by the Bauchi state government to be collecting double salaries.
This was made public by the Bauchi state commissioner for works, Alhaji Abdulkadir Ibrahim while briefing newsmen at the government house Bauchi. He said personnel who are working somewhere else were also found on the payroll of Bauchi state government.
According to the commissioner, “a lot of anomalies have been discovered in Bauchi nominal roll and payroll to the extent that senior civil servants employed their unborn wards and other minors into government work without due process”.
He said that some civil servants were also discovered paying themselves double salaries and above.
