NGO wary of corrupt states duping civil servants

29 November 2016, 21:23

Lagos - The Beyond Boundaries Legacy Leadership Initiative (BBLLI) has appealed to anti-corruption agencies to monitor to the distribution of funds by states to unpaid civil servants.

The non-governmental organisation’s appeal comes amid fears some servants might miss out on the payments because of recurrent corruption in some states.

All the states of the federation have received vast amounts of money being refund of over-deductions on Paris and London clubs loans on the accounts of state and local governments.

The money was said to be credited into the respective accounts of the states Monday last week.

“Regrettably, the governors aren’t anxious for this to be made public, hence the secrecy of the payment,” said Omaga Daniel, Executive Director, BBLLI.

He said approving the allotments of the funds to various state governors, President Muhammadu Buhari had directed them to use the money to pay civil servants' salaries.

“Almost if not all the state governors owe civil servants a backlog of salaries.”

Daniel called on the masses to be vigilant and be vocal as they await their payment.

“We also lastly, we call on the EFCC and ICPC to closely monitor the disbursement of these funds to the rightful and appropriate beneficiaries.”

They are the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission respectively.
