Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, says his administration will not only stop the rotten system that has engulfed the state civil service, but will also probe the past when it all started.

The Governor made the vow during a gathering at the glass hall of the Government House in Lokoja, the state capital in north-central Nigeria.

He promised to restore the civil servants in the state that have been unjustly removed from the payroll.

Highlighting the reasons for the gathering, the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Mr Edward Onoja, said that the meeting would help move the state to the promise land.

The Commissioner for Finance, Ashiru Asiwaju, on his part gave a brief on how allocation was received and spent in Kogi State.

He recommended that the government should embark on financial re-engineering and block leakages in order to survive.

The Chairman of a screening committee, Mr Jerry Abagi, revealed that over 81,000 staff and pensioners were screened while about 5,000 state and local government workers did not show up for the screening.

The Kogi State Auditor-General, Yakubu Okaba and that of the local government, Usman Ododo, reacted to the shocking revelation.

Also expressing shock was Governor Bello who responded to all the issues raised one after the other, just as he implored the workers to go back to work, saying the government was doing its best. (Channels TV)
