    28,000 Ghost Workers On Bayelsa Payroll


    The Bayelsa government said the ongoing public service reforms has reduced its workforce from 55,000 to 27,000, thus fishing out and expunging 28,000 ghost workers from its payroll.

    The Bayelsa Commissioner for Information, Mr Daniel Iworiso-Markson, made this known in a statement on Saturday in Yenagoa.

    Iworiso-Markson was reacting to criticism by the Bayelsa chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) to the job losses occasioned by the management of the reforms.

    He berated APC for criticising the reforms, adding that the aim was to deal with payroll fraud and not to sack workers.
