Yobe Begins Worker Biometric Re-validation Exercise …Gov. Gaidam,deputy first to be enrolled .

By Ahmed Abu, The Nigerian Voice, Damaturu

The State Ministry of Finance has kicked off a biometric re-validation of workers in the employment of the state government to update their data with the ministry for the purpose of effective salary, pension, and other emoluments administration.

The Ministry launched the exercise at the Government House, Damaturu today with His Excellency Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam and his deputy, Engr. Abubakar D. Ali being the first to be biometrically re-validated.

Finance Commissioner Alhaji Muhammad Ismaila Nguru, who briefed the governor on the exercise, said its objective is to update worker records using the latest technology and ensure that those records are available and trackable in real time.

“Your Excellency, we are partnering Nigeria Inter-Bank Settlement System (NIBSS) which has opened a BVN window for this exercise. The exercise will be fully digital and less cumbersome and we will use the BVN numbers of workers and pair the information with what is in our records.

“While the information is updated in the process, no worker in Nigeria whether at the federal, state or local level would be able to collect more than one salary at any given time”, the commissioner said.

Alhaji Samaila Nguru said the exercise would not disrupt work-flow in government ministries, agencies and departments as the consultants engaged in the job will visit designated workplace locations, including some local government headquarters one after another to enroll and re-validate workers.

In his remarks, H.E Gov. Gaidam commended the Finance Ministry for the initiative. He said the last time that a major biometric exercise for government workers was carried out was ten years ago in 2008.

“I want to commend the initiators of this exercise – the commissioner of finance and his able team. I could recall that this exercise was last done in 2008. At the end of the exercise, which was meant to stamp out ghost workers, the salary bill increased rather than decreased…

“The second biometric done was much better where almost all the ghost workers were flushed out. The salary bill dropped to an acceptable level. As at now, I don't think we have any ghost workers in the Ministry of Finance payroll.

“Even so, my expectation is that after the exercise is concluded, we will not have any ghost workers even in the future. We are going to get a final, pure and clean salary figure”, the governor said.

The governor added that after a successful completion of the exercise at the state level, it will be extended to the local government level to help the local councils reap its benefits as well.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube
    sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    One more thing. In my opinion that there are many travel insurance web-sites of trustworthy companies that allow you to enter your journey details and have you the quotations. You can also purchase the particular international holiday insurance policy online by using the credit card. All you should do is usually to enter your own travel details and you can understand the plans side-by-side. You only need to find the program that suits your financial budget and needs and after that use your credit card to buy them. Travel insurance on the web is a good way to take a look for a respectable company for international travel insurance. Thanks for expressing your ideas.
