Fear grips the perpetrators and highly placed political and government appointees in their ignoble role in the alledged appointment of over 400 Political Appointees in Niger State without the consent of Governor Abu Sani.
Investigations by Faces Magazine reveal that Gov. Abu Sani was shocked and dumb-founded to have found out that a bill for the payment of almost N100 Million for the monthly stipends of some 800 hundred political appointees was forwarded for him for payment as against the almost N20 Million for the 400 number directly appointed by him.
Irked by this additional 400 names on the salary payment list submitted, Governor Abu Sani immediately refused to pay the 400 “Ghost Appointees” and directly set up a committee to review all political appointments made by his administration with a view to coming out with a more reasonable and realistic figure after due diligence.
The committee has since swung into action and more surprising revelations are emerging.
When contacted by our reporter, an APC stalwart in Niger State who crave anonymity told our reporter that many people are happy with the urgent steps taken by Governor Abu to stop these fictitious and self serving appointments by those who abuse the privilege given to them by virtue of their appointments and positions in government.
Aside from commending the Governor for taken good steps at curbing and blocking wastages, the stakeholder also advice the committee to recommend decisive measures to be taken agianst any erring persons involved in this embarrassment that can cause serious political distrust and division amongst Nigerlites
