Bent on achieving total elimination of ghost workers from its payroll, the Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, on Saturday said government will on Wednesday unveil its Human Resource Management Information Infrastructure (HRMII) that will identify its genuine workforce.

The Head of Service, who was guest on a radio programme in Abuja, said government is making efforts to clean its payroll also with the integrated payroll and personnel information mechanism.

She said: “Right now there is cleaning up of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel information (IPPI) going on and a lot of things are actually coming out.

“We have started on the verification exercise with the directorate cadre, now we are in level 14 and it is cascading down.

“And at the end of this verification we will get a clear picture of the genuine civil servants on the payroll.”

On the hardship facing retirees before collecting their stipends, she admitted that the pension system is facing serious problem, adding: “We are determined, by the grace of God, to end it before the end of my tenure.

“I have set up a tripartite team made up of the National Pension Commission, HoS and department in the ministries to harmonize this.”
