Okorocha changes tactics says no BVN verification no salary for workers

In a renewed bid to arrest the issue of ghost workers and pensioners, Imo State Government says it would henceforth pay salaries and pensions to beneficiaries, using their Bank Verification Numbers, BVN.
The Secretary to the Government of Imo State, SGI, Sir George Eche, disclosed this yesterday, while speaking with newsmen in Owerri.
“It was for this purpose that the state government commenced the verification of civil servants with their BVN attached”, the SGI explained.
While expressing optimism that once the government was through with the exercise, salaries would be linked to the worker’s BVN, Sir Eche argued that with this development, the ghost workers syndrome would be a thing of the past.
On how he emerged the SGI, Sir Eche said “there is no extant law preventing civil servants from being appointed into the office, appointment of permanent secretaries are not promotional but political”.
Answering another question, the SGI said that pensioners could not be paid monthly because the funds mapped out for each month, could not go round. “In view of this, government allows the money to accumulate up to three months, before any payment is made”, Eche explained.
