Lalong appoints technocrat­s to track down ghost workers


Governor Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State has appointed technocrat­s to help track down ghost workers in the state.

Governor Lalong, while swearing in some members of Statutory Boards and Commission­s at government house, Jos, said he appointed the technocrat­s to help sanitise the state civil service and ensure due process.

Lalong said the State Civil Service remained the engine of governance which must be constantly upgraded to perform effectivel­y.

According to him, this has led to the current audit to remove ghost workers and those who have tampered with their records to remain in office perpetuall­y.
