In Sokoto, ‘no BVN, no salary’ as from April

Sokoto state government has instructed all workers to submit their Bank Verification Numbers (BVN) before they would be paid salaries for the month of April.

Imam Imam, spokesperson for Governor Aminu Tambuwal said on Sunday, that the decision is ‘part of efforts to sanitise the state civil service and permanently tackle the menace of ghost workers’.

He also stated that the Sokoto state Head of Service has been instructed to ensure prompt compliance to enable all workers update their records.

According to the state government, the submission of the BVN forms part of the ongoing verification of staff workforce and the updating of records of all employees in the state civil service.

“The ongoing verification exercise at the local government level has led to saving of substantial amount of money, and the effort will continue until the payroll is completely sanitised”, the statement said.
