The Bayelsa State Government has restated its determination to carry out far-reaching reforms in the service, towards eliminating payroll and other fraudulent activities.
The decision was line with its ongoing efforts at repositioning the State public service for effective service delivery.
Governor Henry Seriake Dickson, in a statement issued on Sunday by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said this was why government set up the various staff verification teams as well as the Judicial Commission of Inquiry for the state public service and the Rural Development Authorities.
The statement quoted the governor as directing all permanent secretaries, heads of the parastatals and extra ministerial departments as well as principals and headmasters, to submit their staff nominal rolls, indicating the date of first appointment of each staff and current grade level.
He also urged them to “submit the staff payrolls, indicating the authentic monthly salary for each staff, within one week, stressing that, non compliance with this directive would be met with stiff disciplinary measures.”
Iworiso-Markson said: “The permanent secretaries, heads of parastatals and heads of extra ministerial departments, principals and headmasters, have been strongly advised to sign the required documents personally and take responsibility for every information or data submitted in this regard.
“The permanent secretaries and heads of parastatals and extra ministerial departments are expected to submit their documents to the office of the Head of Service of the State, with principals to submit same to the Chairman of the Post Primary Schools Board, while headmasters are directed to submit same to the Executive Secretary of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).”
The State Government also used the medium to appeal to all workers of the public service to be patient, as efforts were being made to ensure that, all genuine public servants were paid their salaries.
