Federal Government sets up committee to control employment fraud in MDAs - IPPIS

Establishing the committee, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, lamented occurrences of severe practices, observing that a huge number of fake employment letters were being found in some Ministries.

As indicated by her, the Office is already working together with security agencies to investigate and bring to book those behind the despicable and dishonourable practices.

Yemi-Esan lauded President Muhammadu Buhari for implementing the human resource module of the IPPIS, also the integrated payroll system would help address the endless occurrence of ghost workers as well as the reduction of personnel cost.
