13 Personnel Management Directors (DPM) have had their names inked into the bad books of Governor Sule over claims of inflating their salaries.
These corrupt directors have been suspended for three months according to the spokesperson of the Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Alhaji Adamu Shigafarta.
Shigafarta also disclosed that said these heedless-nation wreckers were suspended because they refused to work with the directive of the committee set up by the government to investigate the discrepancies and high wage bills incurred by the local governments.
That was why two months ago, the state government constituted a committee headed by the accountant-general, auditor-general, permanent secretary, three chairmen and director in the ministry, to look into the problem.
The committee, after investigation, discovered that after payment of salaries and other entitlements, over N600 million was remaining; so they directed local governments to go back and pay salaries with 2012 payment vouchers, but the DFS refused.
From the ministry they were directed to use 2012 payment vouchers to pay salaries and if there is any genuine complaint, they should be forwarded to the committee for ratification, but they refused; they held payment of salaries to ransom. That was why the government directed that they be suspended.”
