Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa state.

Bayelsa State government has announced that a total number of 58 workers of the State Post-Primary Schools Board (PPSB) have been recommended for compulsory retirement over alleged cases of falsification of records.

It said the falsified records were in terms of under declaration of age and questionable letters of first appointment.

The State Post-Primary School Board also announced that it has reduced the staff wage bill from N609m to N594m, representing a savings of N15m as a result of the reforms.

The Board, it would be recalled, was reconstituted in April by the State Governor, Hon Seriake Dickson, with specific instructions to ensure that its wage bill is audited by checking all financial books and records.

Chairman of the Board, Dr Asiam Ikuru, who disclosed this at a news conference in Yenagoa also said the board scrutinised and verified discrepancies that exist in terms of indiscriminate award of salary grade levels and steps in the payment vouchers and nominal rolls of the board.

She said the board constituted two committees – Salary Grade Levels and Steps Regularisation Committee (SGLSRC) and the Over-Aged Staff Verification Committee (OASVC).
