800 ghost schools in Kogi


The Kogi Government yesterday said it had uncovered at least 3,000 ghost teachers on its payroll and 800 non-existing primary schools during the recent screening exercise in the state. Mr Paul Audu, the state accountant-general, who made this known to journalists in Lokoja, said government would deal with the situation.

He said the screening had revealed a lot of unwholesome dealings of corrupt accounting. Reacting to complaints over omission of some teachers’ names from the payroll, Audu said problems associated with teachers’ salaries were as a result of the ghost workers and non-existing schools.

He said such expenditure had been draining government’s coffers. The accountant-general said names of genuine teachers who were erroneously omitted from the salary vouchers had also been compiled. Audu , however, attributed the development to improper bank account numbers supplied by the affected teachers.

The accountant general said problems associated with computation and payment of salaries would be over by the time the report of the screening committee was fully implemented. Audu hinted that a master payroll for teachers in the state had been produced to enable the government deal with authentic teachers.

He said a committee had also been constituted by the state government to implement the recommendations made by the screening committee. Audu said his office was currently training members of staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) on e-payment computerisation since they are directly in charge of primary school teachers.

He said that they would resume duties in their respective offices as soon as the training was over. (NAN)

  2. When such discovery are made, names and locations of such teachers should be publish for community members to confirm the autenticity of the claim. Why is kogi state always on the bad news?


    Were are the commentators in this page? are they tired of writing? or because it didn’t occured in one of the states of a particular zone that they hate and never expected anything good to happened there?, but are they GOD? Be mindful that he who hate his brother is a murderer.When ever there is evil of any kind, condemn it on it”s own individual merit, not to condemn a state or zone.Corruption is from the top and so much in this PDP led government.The governor has to investigate proper because some of his commissioners and educational inspectors may be involved in the deal, who knows.

    • bros you spoke well jarry , meanwhile just take a look see how the northerners are bigger in Nigeria , 3000 ghost teachers , 800 ghost school . just minus this number x ten you will understand what where are going through in this country . in kano maybe 3million ghost teachers and 5 million ghost student and 3000 ghost school

  4. The problem is not Nigeria, but Nigerians. Obviously, Nigerians in Nigeria are beyond redemption. I support, wholly the death penalty for corruption, as been championed by some Nigerians. Ah ah.
