EFCC

The Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) has petitioned the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate both former and serving governors who they alleged squandered the states’ resources on frivolities but abandoned payment of workers salaries.

The union alleged that some of the governors used state funds to finance campaigns during the elections, while the workforce was being owed salary for many months.

In a communique issued at the end of a one-day meeting in Abuja, jointly signed by its President Comrade Kiri Mohammed and Ag. General Secretary, comrade Felix C. Ifoh, the group described the situation where some states and Local Governments ‎cannot pay workers salaries, allowances and other mandatory deductions for many months due to corruption, as unfortunate.

The group therefore said it was high time the EFCC beamed its searchlight into the activities of the affected governors to ascertain how they managed the state’s resources.
