The ongoing verification exercise by the Niger State government to authenticate the state workforce and cut cost has discovered over 800 million Naira monthly fraud apart from the ghost workers menace.

The consultant carrying out the verification during investigation led by Sa’adat Bakrin-Ottun discovered the fraud in the Niger State Hospital Management Board (HMB).

A nominal roll showing the job description of each employee in the hospital and requested for by the consultant to ascertain the salary scale used for their earnings showed some anomalies that had led to loss of huge funds.

It was discovered that the administrative department, especially those saddled with the responsibility to issue cards to patients needing doctors’ attention and other groups earned salaries higher than that of their department grade level.

This according to findings resulted into loss of over 800 million Naira per month in only HMB.

A report by the consultant revealed that a medical record staff who only issued cards to see doctor at Hospital Management Board earned over 332,000 Naira monthly instead of a supposed salary of 56,821 Naira. (Channels TV)
