Oyo Govt Commences Workers Audit, Payroll Verification 

In fulfilment of his plans to ascertain the number of workers on the government payroll, Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde on Tuesday launched the staff audit and payroll validation exercise.
With the development, civil servants, public officials, teachers, local government employees and retirees are to be screened in phases in the exercise taking place at the state secretariat, Ibadan from today (Wednesday).
At the launch of the ceremony held at the Executive Chamber of the Governor’s Office, Governor Makinde was screened by the consultant engaged by the government, Sally Tibbot Consultant.
Speaking after his screening, he said the exercise was aimed at ascertaining all persons drawing money from the government’s coffers, adding that the exercise was not basically about verification of certificates, but for the government to curb wastage, plug leakages in its payroll and have valid data for planning.
The governor quoted Makinde as assuring the workers that while the screening lasts, no worker will be denied salary.
Makinde had cried out upon assumption of office that the state wage bill increased by N1billion between the time he was declared the winner of the March 29 governorship election and May 29 when he was sworn in.
The Head of Service, Mrs. Ololade Agboola, said no civil servant, public servant or pensioner would be treated unfairly by the exercise, adding that the target was to improve workers’ welfare.
