The Director -General, Kogi State Bureau of Information and Grassroots Mobilisation, Alhaji Abdulmalik Abdulkareem, said this in a statement made available to newsmen in Lokoja on Sunday.


The government’s statement is in response to an earlier threat by Kogi Poly local chapter of the Academic staff Union of Polytechnics ( ASUP ) to embark on an indefinite strike over non-payment of July salary of its members.
“Kogi State Government affirmed that the discovery of N145 million fraud in the salary vouchers was responsible for the delay in payment of the July salary . This is based on facts obtained from the office of Auditor -General of Kogi State,” the statement said.
The ASUP had threatened to direct its members to embark on strike if the July salary of its members is not paid latest by Sept. 11.
Andulmalik faulted the position of ASUP and other unions in the polytechnic, saying that the delay in payment of their July salary was self-inflicted .
He alleged that some accounts staff of Kogi poly bloated the salary vouchers to defraud the state government of N145 million.
According to him, the salary is being delayed to give room for a thorough investigation into the alleged fraud.
The director-general said the state government had recovered N145m from over bloated wage bill.
He , however, assured that all staff would start receiving their July salary as from Sept. 11.
Abdulkareem said that government had directed that salary of workers in the salary unit of the polytechnic be put on hold pending the conclusion of investigation.
According to him, investigations showed that staff in charge of salary payment perpetrated the scam by transferring money into accounts of some cooperatives societies and unions.
“Salaries of some staff of the polytechnic were also fraudulently bloated,” he said.
Abdulmalik said that there was no need for ASUP and other unions to go on strike again as government would start paying their July salary by Sept. 11.
He reiterated government’s zero tolerance for corruption, adding that no efforts would be spared to put an end to such fraudulent practices.
