ZAMFARA, Nigeria – The committee inaugurated by the Zamfara State government says it is yet to complete its assignment but was still working to determine the numerical strength of the civil servants in the state.
The committee’s chairman, Ambassador Bashir Yuguda Gusau disclosed this while giving details of the extent of the committee’s work during an interactive session with newsmen at the government house.
He said the committee have given the state government recommendations on the implementation of the N30.000 minimum wage.
“We are warning all the revenue agencies in the state to sit up because the state government would no longer tolerate a situation where revenue agencies would collect revenue in the name of the government and embezzle it” he said.
“We are not denying the fact that the insecurity situation has not totally ended in the state. All these challenges are putting a lot of pressure on the little resources of the state”
The former minister appealed to the revenue agencies to always remit revenue to the government coffers, pointing out that even after embezzling the money they still come to the government for monthly cash allocation.
