Good news; good work

President Jonathan's government went through several European public relations firms looking for one that could help get better publicity. President Buhari has either found a good PR firm or he's really doing things that sound good.

Nigeria government's audit removes nearly 24,000 non-existent workers
The Nigerian government has removed nearly 24,000 workers from its payroll after an audit revealed they did not exist, the Finance Ministry has said.

The move has enabled a monthly saving of around $11,5m (£8m).

The audit is part of an anti-corruption campaign by President Muhammadu Buhari, who took power last year…

The audit started in December used biometric data and a bank verification number to identify holders of bank accounts into which salaries were being paid, Reuters news agency reports.

This process allowed the identification of some workers who were receiving a salary that did not correspond to the names linked to the bank accounts.

It also revealed that some employees were receiving salaries from multiple sources.

Some 23,846 non-existent workers were removed from the payroll, an adviser to the finance minister was quoted by Reuters as saying…

Officials have said the savings resulted from the anti-corruption measures will help the country tackle its crisis and prevent job cuts.
