Mr. Kaibo who briefed journalist in Yola, Friday said all adhoc staffers would be paid provided they have been screened by the verification committee and authenticate them to be rightly employed by the Government.

He blamed the previous governments for granting employment and refused to pay them their entitlements.

“We have to say the reality, Nyako actually employed them base on necessity but did not pay them, Umaru Fintir came and they were not considered for payment and the same thing with Governor Bala James Ngilari who did not give them due consideration,” he said

According to Mr. Kaibo the 836 workers were to be captured for their payment but later discovered the number was doubled by ghost workers. Some names were smuggled into the list and this made it necessary for the present administration to set up another committee to go round all the health facilities to physically inspect, and ascertain the actual number of staff that have been genuinely employed and working at the respective Health facilities in order to cause the payment of their entitlements.

“It’s gratifying to stress that the committee has made tremendous efforts in dealing with abnormalities in the HSMB and Government has concluded arrangements to address all issues pertaining to the staff in that sector,” Kaibo added

He further said that the Local Government e-payment is delaying because of issues of omissions of salaries of some verified LG staff occurred which necessitated Government to set up an Appeal committee in order to address all complaints arising from the newly introduced e-payment in the LG salary administration. The Committee is expected to clear all complaints within 90 days from the date of it’s inauguration.

“It was a past government, Nyako government, being a necessity, Fintir did not, Bala didn’t pay, over 1000 came with faked employment. Some people are not even in the country. Some are even working some where. Next week we are  going out, 5000 did not appear for the verification committee,” he added.
