As the ongoing Bauchi State workers’ verification exercise winds up, Governor Mohammed Abubakar has approved the release of February and March salaries of the second batch of late submission of verified workers in all the ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs, involving 70 MDAs.

Payment of the re-verified and cleared workers in 64 of the 70 MDAs has already commenced since Friday. The six outstanding ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs whose workers are being scrutinised are the Bauchi State Judiciary, Bauchi Shari’ah Court of Appeal, State Hospitals Management Board, Bauchi State Ministry of Health and Bauchi Zonal Education I and II.

Among those captured in the second batch of late submission of verified workers are workers having salary accounts in Micro Finance Banks and Jaiz Bank, and 70% of the coverage was given to workers who were physically verified in local government areas (LGAs) and the local education authorities (LEAs).

One hundred percent of workers in LGAs and LEAs have been physically re-verified in Bauchi north and Bauchi south senatorial districts while re-verification of those in Bauchi Central senatorial district is being completed. So far the verification and payment of salaries of more than seventy-five percent of the state workforce has been completed.     

Report of the workers’ verification committee is expected to be ready and submitted to government next week for all those verified and cleared to be paid their February and March salaries.

While thanking workers, their unions and the general public for showing understanding and support throughout the verification exercise, Governor Abubakar assured workers of prompt payment of their salaries and salary related entitlements after the clean up exercise and stressed that culprits will be brought to book.

Similarly, following the approval given by Governor Mohammed Abubakar for the payment of 2015/2016 bursaries for students of Bauchi state origin, over 166 million naira has been released to the scholarship payment committee and payments have already been completed at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi and the Abubakar Tatari Ali Polytechnic, Bauchi.

The Bauchi State government therefore appeals to all students to remain in their schools as the scholarship payment committee will only pay the students in the respective schools.
