Lalong also pledged to rid the civil service of members of staff who have questionable records or are found to have tampered with their records.

According to him, over 532 members of staff whose records are questionable have so far been removed from the state’s payroll after an investigation using the BVN system.

Lalong, who disclosed this during a policy retreat for Permanent Secretaries held at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, (NIPSS) Kuru, near Jos said the exercise will continue as those found culpable will face disciplinary actions.

Head of Service Plateau State, Sunday Chong Hyat said the Policy Retreat became necessary because of the appointment of 14 new Permanent Secretaries.

Lead Consultant, Mr Ezekiel Gomos and the Head of Component, Policy and Strategy GIZ/SEDIN Mr Akin Omoware said the retreat provided an opportunity for government to build the capacity of the top echelon of its workforce.
