Bauchi State governor, Bala Muhammed has today disclosed that up to 20 percent of teachers on the state’s payroll are ghost workers.
This Muhammed said while speaking with the youths to commemorate the 2019 edition of the Day of the African Child.
Muhammed said he would ensure that a personnel audit of teachers is conducted, adding that frivolous contracts that were awarded by previous administrations would be addressed also.
He said that he was going to wage a total war against those he described as “enemies of the state” who had retarded the development of the state.
“I wonder what the previous administrations were doing while they allowed the infrastructure and education system to degenerate to the lowest ebb,’’ he said.
He promised to employ about 1,000 female teachers earlier trained by the state in conjunction with UNICEF and other organizations.
