TINUBU Goes Tough Against Workers Collecting Salaries After Relocating Abroad by SojWORLDWIDE(m): 12:42pm On Jun 24
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said Civil Servants who relocated abroad and still collecting their monthly salaries will have to do restitutions by returning all they have fraudulently collected.

The President who was represented by the Secretary of the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume delivered the message at the 2024 Civil Service Award and Gala Night, the climax of the week-long 2024 Civil Service Week.

The President said he was struck by the revelations of the fraud revealed by the Head of Service, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan in her reform of the Civil Service.

Tinubu added that the supervisors of the erring workers "aiding and abetting the fraud under their watch" will be sanctioned.

"During my recent visit to South Africa, I kept abreast of the week's activities. I was particularly struck by the revelations the Head of the Civil Service shared regarding employees who had relocated abroad while drawing salaries without formally resigning.

It is heartening to hear that measures have been taken to address this issue, but we must ensure those responsible are held accountable and restitution is made.

The culprits must be made to refund the money they have fraudulently collected. Their supervisors and department heads must also be punished for aiding and abetting the fraud under their watch.

The Nigerian Civil Service cannot just be a workplace where ‘anything is possible,’ where workers violate rules without the fear of punishment or repercussion. The civil service of any nation is too important for such misconduct to take root or be tolerated.

The Civil Service is the bedrock, the engine, the locomotive of government, which is necessary for the government to deliver public goods to citizens. As politicians, we are no more than drivers of the locomotives that you provide.

Those who say that a nation is as good as its civil service are close to the truth. You are the real establishment that remains to pilot government affairs as we politicians come and go."
