Kaduna State government has discovered about 800 civil servants working in two places within the State civil service and collecting double salaries.
Counsellor for Information and Communications, Sa’idu Adamu disclosed this while speaking with journalists on Thursday in the state.
According to him, the government discovered them during a verification exercise by El’rufai’s Administration.
He explained that Gov Nasir El-Rufa’i came to the State with a vision of change.
Adamu added that the policies of the Administration so far were not aimed at witch hunting anyone, but for the overall development of the State and wellbeing of the people.
The Information and Communication Strategist stated that the government had a lot of Programmes with good intentions for the State, but in the process of executing them, mistakes could be made as human beings.
“Leaders make mistakes. It is human. Everyone has his own left and right. There are certain decisions taken by the government through political will to achieve positive results.
“It is normal to have issues or divergent views even among families. If there are no issues or problems then no politics,” he emphasized.
Adamu therefore called on journalists in the state to collaborate with the administration to forget the past and chart a new cause admitting that it was now time for the government to be proactive.
