Katsina Governor-elect To Conduct Staff Audit After Swearing-in
By Our Correspondent
Katsina State governor-elect Dikko Umar Radda has hinted of plans by his administration to conduct a staff audit in all the 34 local government areas of the state after his swearing-in as governor on May 29, 2023.
Radda who fielded questions during a television programme, expressed displeasure with some staff who despite being on the payroll of the government remain ineffective in service delivery.
He said, “What we want to do is a very serious staff audit when we come to ensure that those people that are on the payroll are giving the services to the local governments.
“It is unfortunate you see somebody receiving a salary in the local government but has already gotten work at the federal level or some private sector and he will be taking double salaries for work not done.
So, we need to fish out those things,” he said.
Radda declared his willingness to give the LGAs free hands to manage their funds, adding that his government would establish a very strong inspectorate or ministry to ensure accountability in every spending.
