FG to recover 53,000 ghost workers’ pensions – Adeosun

New executive order will boost revenue generation – Presidency

Presidency plans to recover all the pensions payment made to ghosts detected on the payroll of the federal government.

More than 53,000 ghosts have been detected on the payroll inherited by the Buhari administration.

Finance minister, Kemi Adeosun said her ministry is working with the national pensions commission to recover the pension.

She explained that the pensions being targetted are those already paid into the retirement savings account of the detected ghosts.

“The Presidential Initiative on Continuous Audit came in so that they can check the payroll and make sure that we pay the right amount and ghost workers do not exist; there is no fraud and that there is no error in the payroll,” the minister said.

“We have removed 53,000 people from the payroll and we are working with PenCom to recover some of the pensions because the problem with these ghost salary earners is that not only are we paying their salaries, we are also paying pensions.

“So, we are trying to recover some of the overpaid pensions from some of the people we have removed from the payroll.”
