The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC has said state governments and employers are to blame for the ghost workers’ syndrome in the country’s public service.
NLC president, AYUBBA WABBA who emphasised this in an in an interview in Abuja said once the computer system used to capture the biometric data of workers was compromised, the data collected would become unreliable.
According to him, it is not the workers that encourage this issue of ghost worker’s syndrome but employers at the highest level.
The NLC president, therefore, called on the federal government to ensure that the capturing of workers’ biometric data is not manipulated.
Recall that President MUHAMMADU BUHARI’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, GARBA SHEHU recently said that the federal government had identified 50,000 ghost workers in its payroll.
