There is intense anxiety among civil servants in Nasarawa State following the staff verification exercise being carried out by the State Government.
ExpressDay can authoritatively report that the committee recently inaugurated by the State Government to look into the issues of salary and promotion arrears, has requested civil servants in the state to forward their bank statements for verification.
Verification of the bank statements, according to the committee, will enable it advise the state government on the way forward.
Findings by ExpressDay revealed that the Committee which is headed by the Commissioner for Works, Housing and Transport, Mr. Philip Dada, had been given four weeks to submit its report.
However, our correspondent gathered that at its meeting on Thursday, the committee could not round up its report, hence, decided that it would extend the time.
Findings by our correspondent further revealed that the Mr. Philip Dada-led committee was inaugurated because of the allegation that some civil servants in the state had not been promoted since the past 10 years.
The Committee is also saddled with the responsibility to come with a workable formula on how the state government can settle salary arrears of 2016 and part of 2017 being owed civil servants in the state.
A cross section of civil servants interviewed by our reporter expressed concern over the committee’s insistence that they must produce their bank account statement.
Others, however, blamed the committee for its inability to finish its work within the time frame.
They, therefore, called on the Mr. Dada-led committee to expedite action and complete its work so that they will know their fate in respect of their promotion and salary arrears.
