The Adamawa State Government has ratified a white paper which recommended the disengagement of over 5,000 employees of the state whose employments were “fraught with irregularities.”
Nearly all of the workers affected by the purge were those employed into the state civil service at the end of the immediate past administration of Governor Umaru Bindow.
But Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, had upon assumption of office, ordered the stoppage of the salaries of the employees.
The state executive council on Wednesday finally ratified their removal from the state civil service.
The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Dr Umar Pella, stated this on Thursday at the close of the State Executive Council meeting, presided over by Fintiri.
Pella said the white paper report of the committee showed that there were irregularities in their employment process conducted between September 2018 and May 2019.
He said by the decision, those employed during the period were not part of the state civil service and urged them to seek fresh employment into the state civil service being planned by the new government.
