The Nassarawa State Government says the report of the recent Bank Verification Number (BVN) exercise it conducted will expose workers receiving double salaries.
Alhaji Mohammed Musa, the Nasarawa State Accountant General, said this in an interview with newsmen on Sunday in Lafia.
He said the report of the exercise was in consonance with the state government’s resolve to rid the civil service of corrupt practices and ensure proper accountability.
“We embarked on this exercise to see how we can further reduce some of these leakages and corruption in the system,” he said.
According to him, civil servants caught to be enjoying multiple salaries will be made to face the wrath of the law.
“The report will reveal any abnormality and whoever that is found receiving double salaries will not be spared by government.
“ The report is with me and would be made public soon,” he said.
On the implementation of the Treasury Single Account (TSA), Musa said government officials had to visit neighbouring states which had the initiative in place to understudy the operation of the system.
“The governor inaugurated the committee on the implementation of the TSA and some of us have gone out to other states like Kaduna and Plateau to study how they succeeded in implementing the TSA because they already have the system,” he said.
He said that once the TSA was implemented in the state, each ministry, department and agency would have access to one operational account to eradicate financial excesses and discrepancies. (NAN)
