A breakdown of the cabinet statement released showed that no single offices was left out in the exercise with many of their staffers joining the new acronym of reducing the state workforce as “ghost”

Local government areas are worst hit as copies of the report were been concealed to avoid anti government demonstration from the workers in all the councils

Reliable sources confirmed all is not well with the local government councils as more than 50% of the workforce are now”ghost”in their various places of work and advised to guide against government rash

Another source revealed that the purported uncleared/complained list is just a ploy to ‎buy time as workers in the same category as”ghost” have not taken salary for about 11 months

Uneasy calm pervades the entire state as protest and preparation to embark on a total showdown to force the unrepentant government of Yahaya Bello to reverse it’s decision

Activities of workers union and bodies have been crippled in the last one year including the formidable NLC as most of the leaders are not left out of the “ghost” syndrome as the state NLC chairman was also involved

The grand plan of the present administration is to force the workforce down by declaring bonafide workers “ghost”
