Oyo State House of Assembly has urged the executive to set up inter ministerial committee to look into cases of civil servants who have absconded or travelled out of the country but still receiving salaries.

The advice followed a motion brought to the House by the Speaker, Mr Adebo Ogundoyin, co-sponsored by the majority leader, Sanjo Adedoyin and presented by Mr Babajide Gabriel, representing Ibadan North Constituency 2.

Mr Babajide who said some of the civil servants had left the system while others are absent without leave of permission, disclosed that some workers have also become accomplices aiding their colleagues that were no more in the system.

Mr. Babajide also suggested sanction for any worker found culpable, aiding civil servants who are still receiving salaries and had left the workforce.

Contributing, Mr Gbenga Oyekola said despite the continuous relocation, death and retirement of workers, the state’s budget for workers’ salaries on monthly basis remained unchanged.

Another lawmaker, Mr. Akintunde Olajide urged the executive to extend their probe into political office holders in Oyo State whom he said had relocated abroad but still receiving salaries monthly.

Speaker of the House, Mr Adebo Ogundoyin called on the executive to embark on staff audit to ascertain the number of workers still in service and to allow recruitment exercise.
