Dear Sir,
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
It is indeed a great day in the life of this administration and esteem honour to stand before you to present our report on the successful completion of the validation of the report of the staff verification and screening exercise conducted for Kogi State workers.
Your Excellency sir, upon assumption of office and in keeping to your promise to reform and reposition the state civil service for quality services and delivery of dividend of democracy, which has for long time eluded the state for over 16 years, the Staff Verification & Screening Committee was inaugurated on February 22, 2016. The purpose of setting up of the Staff Verification & Screening Committee, among other things is to ascertain the true position of the State and Local Governments workforce with a view to optimize human & financial resources of the State and to enable His Excellency to properly plan for the holistic development of the State even with the meagre resources at the disposal of the Government.

Following the outcry generated by the activities of the Staff Verification & Screening Committee, under the Chairmanship of General Paul Olushola Okutimo, which was almost frustrating and sabotaging the entire screening process, Your Excellency changed the leadership of the Staff Verification & Screening Committee and bowed to the pressure of Nigerian Labour Congress and its affiliates bodies, under the leadership of Comrade Johnson Onuh Edoka to have their representative as the Chairman of the Staff Verification & Screening Committee, hence Dr. Jerry Agbaji was presented by Comrade Johnson Onuh Ekoka (NLC Chairman) to His Excellency as the preferred Chairman of the reshuffled Committee.

In the same vein, Your Excellency set up the Backup Committee on May 24, 2016 with the mandate to work with the Staff Verification & Screening Committee in order to restore discipline, integrity and transparency to the screening exercise.

Subsequently, the Staff Verification & Screening Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr.. Jerry Agbaji submitted their report to Your Excellency on June 22, 2016. In the report submitted to Your Excellency, almost all the representatives of NLC affiliate unions refused to sign the report they prepared.

Those that refused to sign the report are;




Thereafter, the Backup Committee was upgraded by His Excellency to Staff Screening & Validation Committee with the mandate to review and authenticate the report submitted by the Staff Screening and Verification Committee under the Chairmanship of Dr. Jerry Agbaji.

We are glad to state that we have successfully completed the task as contained in your mandate...
