    FG tracks N8bn from ghost workers every month

    The Muhammadu Buhari-led regime is saving N8billion on the average every month from tracking 40,000 ghost workers, Garba Shehu, presidential aide has said.

    Shehu issued the statement Monday saying that the current administration is doing much to “sanitise the huge salary bill by eliminating payroll fraud,”

    His words: “So far, the federal payroll has been rid of about 40,000 ghost workers, where more than N8billion stolen monthly has been saved.”

    According to him, the federal government is also determined to enforce fiscal discipline across the states to check wasteful spending.

    This would force the state governments to reform their spending and build savings and investments.

    Shehu said the reform would include blockage of leakages that allowed government’s revenues to be siphoned into private hands.

    “The Federal Government is not limiting the reforms to the centre, but forcing state governments to reform their spending and build savings or investments,’’ he said.
