Governor El-Rufai to commence verification of all civil servants in Kaduna

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has announced the commencement of biometric verification of all civil servants in the state’s workforce from Wednesday.

The exercise was signed and announced on Sunday by the Head of Service to Kaduna State Governor, Mrs Alisabatu Dada-Onazi.

Mrs Dada-Onazi said that the verification exercise was designed to provide the State Government with accurate and reliable record of its personnel and clean-up its payroll.

According to the statement issued to all Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government, data collected from the exercise would enable the government to determine whether the billions of Naira spent monthly on staff salaries were paid to identifiable and verifiable civil servants or not.

It further explained that the biometric registration exercise would be conducted simultaneously across the three senatorial zones which are Kaduna, Kafanchan and Zaria.

The civil servants, in the statement, were advised to bring their letter of appointment, letter of last promotion and means of identification which could be their National Identity Card, Driver’s License, Permanent Voter Card or International Passport.

The Head of Service also directed the workers to physically appear before the verification team for screening and collection of their salary cheques for the month of June 2015.

The biometric verification exercise would be completed on Wednesday July 8.

The Kaduna State Government had in the previous week, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with United Bank for Africa and Zenith Bank, to partner in updating the Civil Service Payroll.
