Bala Mohammed, governor of Bauchi, says at least 20 percent of teachers on the payroll of the state government are ghost workers.

Mohammed disclosed this on Sunday while addressing youth in the state in commemoration of the 2019 edition of the Day of the African Child.

The governor said previous administrations “opted to enlist ghost workers” although many trained teachers were not employed.

Mohammed said his administration would conduct a personnel audit of teachers and also look into “frivolous contracts” that were awarded by previous administrations.

He said he was going to wage total war against those he described as “enemies of the state” who according to him, retarded the development of the state.

He added that he would prosecute some former top officials of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) over their roles in managing the finances of the board.

He promised to employ about 1,000 female teachers earlier trained by the state in conjunction with UNICEF and other organisations.

“I wonder what the previous administrations were doing while they allowed the infrastructure and education system to degenerate to the lowest ebb,’’ he said.
