A call on the Niger State Government to recruit more hands into the civil service has been made.
Themail call was contained in a report which was read on the floor of the Niger State House of Assembly by Hon. Malik Madaki stating the challenges facing the health and education sector, He urged his Colleagues to also support the motion he is presenting.
Madaki noted that some civil servants particularly teachers of secondary schools with Masters Degree and PhD were transferred to various tertiary institutions within the state, thereby creating vacancies in government owned primary and secondary schools.
The health sector lack enough staffs to attend to patients he added.
He said ” it is common sense that if vacancies should exist, then it is expected that the monthly wages should equally reduce but instead it keeps increasing. Previous budget passed by this Hon. House, had several times approved an allocation for new employment into the state civil service in addition to the existing vacancies.”
Noting also that sometimes ago, there was an attempt by the state government to recruit more hands into the state civil service but up till date, that has not seen the light of the day.
The house resolved as follows for: 1, as a matter of urgency call upon the executive to immediately replace the existing vacancies by recruiting both teachers and health personnel to combat the situation in the interest of Nigerlites.
