Legislative leader of Gombe, Inuwa Yahaya, says the state earns through N2.5bn month to month on pay rates of around 67,000 representatives who were later found to be fraudulently getting pay rates from more than one government organizations.
The representative revealed that Gombe got N4.5bn month to month from the Federation Account and that the month to month workers’ compensation was a channel on its assets.
Yahaya expressed this at the initiation of the common administration survey council on Friday.
He said there were government workers who were initially utilized in the neighborhood taxpayer supported organization before their exchange to the state administration, yet they kept on drawing pay rates from the two administrations, some of whom were named as Personal Assistants and Special Assistants to the state senator.
“The progress advisory group had expressed in its report the need to change the common administration for better administration conveyance, and when I expected office, I understood that the need was a pressing one,” the senator noted.

He included that the size and quantities of the ministries helped in installing fraud and variations from the norm in the basic segment.
“When we came in, what we found was a structure that contained 27 ministries.
“After a cautious investigation, we understood that we probably won’t require more than 18; it is extremely unlikely Gombe State could go with 27 ministries” he noted.
The 11-part board of trustees on the Review and Restructuring of the State Civil Service, headed by Dr Jalo Daudu, a resigned government changeless secretary and previous head of common administration of the state, is relied upon to survey the structure and elements of the Gombe State Ministries, Departments and Agencies; and to propose methods for improving Gombe common administration.
