The Governor of Ondo state, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Wednesday ordered the immediate sack of workers receiving double salaries in the state.

The governor gave the directive to the state’s head of service after receiving reports from the Committee for Verification, Scrutinization and Clean-up of the state payroll.


Although the numbers of workers sacked is unknown, the governor said it will serve as a deterrent to others.

Akeredolu also directed all Ministries, Departments, and Parastatals (MDAs) in the State to stop recruitment under any guise until the Salary Verification Committee concludes its assignment.

He said “We have an over-bloated workforce, and undoubtedly, I am sure there are many ghost workers.

Those who are receiving double salaries, apart from recovering the money from them, I am directing the Head of Service to get them dismissed. They must serve as deterrents to others,”
