Bauchi State government said it has discovered 89 non-existent medical doctors on the States payroll drawing millions as monthly salaries.
The States commissioner for works Abdulkadir Ibrahim Chikasoron made the revelation while answering questions from newsmen after the States Executive Council Meeting at the Banquet Hall of the Government House, Bauchi.
Cikasoro said the ghost medical workers were discovered through the continued exercise of the States verification committee.
He said the medical doctors have been milking the state in salary emoluments while they were employed elsewhere.
He said his principal, the governor of the State was ready to sanitize the payroll of the State government.
