Reforms undertaken by the Yobe state government in areas of governance, financial discipline and execution of contracts have liberated the state government from the hardship of economic downturn and ensured seamless staff salary payments, the State Governor, Ibrahim Gaidam has said.

The governor, who spoke at the opening of a 2-day retreat for the state’s legislature, the executive and top civil servants yesterday in Abuja, said a lot of ghost workers were identified and leakages blocked through the process.

“As part of efforts to internalize the lessons learnt through our collaboration with SPARC,” the governor said, “our administration has made it mandatory for MDAs to conduct their activities in a transparent manner and this has checked diversion of funds, misappropriation, revenue leakages and misuse of public funds.

“The cumulative effect of these reforms in Public Finance Management is the high standards of accountability and prudence manifested in the ability of the state government to remain above board and keep paying salaries, overhead costs and even service some capital projects at a time when many states cannot pay staff salaries.”
