The Federal Government has deleted at least 1,618 civil servants from the the Integration Personnel Payroll and Information System (IPPIS) in one year.

Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan revealed that the workers were delisted for possessing illegal and fake employment letters.

Yemi-Esan spoke on Wednesday in Abuja, during a media parley organized as part of programmes marking the 2024 Civil Service Week.

She disclosed that through physical verification conducted by the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of Government, the once over-bloated federal civil service has now been brought down from over 100,000 to 69,308 who have been verified and are on the payroll.

Yemi-Esan revealed that apart from the ghost workers who were parading fake employment letters, there was also the issue of some civil servants who “japa” for greener pastures in overseas that were caught napping during the physical verification exercise.

According to her, some of them who came into the country for the verification exercise like one or two weeks after the exercise had been conducted under the pretext that they were not aware of the scheduled physical verification exercise, were graciously given two weeks to appear for the verification exercise.

The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, said instead of waiting for the two weeks in addition to the days they had already spent in Nigeria, “a lot of them tendered their resignation letters because no UK organization would afford to give two additional weeks in the country to perfect the verification process.
