The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu has sacked civil servants for receiving double salaries from the state government.

He gave the other for their dismissal while receiving the report of the Committee for Verification, Scrutinisation and Clean-up of the state payroll on Wednesday.

The number of the sacked workers has not been disclosed.

Akeredolu also directed all ministries, departments and parastatals in the state to stop recruitments until the salary verification committee has finished its assignment.

“We have an over-bloated workforce, and undoubtedly, I am sure there are many ghost workers.

"Those who are receiving double salaries, apart from recovering the money from them, I am directing the Head of Service to get them dismissed.

"They must serve as a deterrent to others,” he said.
