This is contained in a statement issued by Isa Gusau, his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy.
“Shettima has directed the State Civil Service Commission to begin procedures for the recruitment of 300 graduates of various fields from the 27 local government areas into the service,” Gusau said.
According to the statement, they are to be recruited from among graduates of various fields from the 27 local government areas of the state.
The governor gave the directive while presenting certificates to 10 youths sponsored by the State government for one year course on electricity generation, distribution and transmission at the National Power Training Institute.
The 300 slots were created due to successful verification of workers at the State civil service which led to the discovery of about ten thousand ghost workers who had been on the payroll of the state government for over twenty years with unknown persons siphoning over five hundred million naira meant for salaries of workers.
Shettima also said the fresh employment is aimed not to just engage idle graduates but also to reposition the State Civil Service with productive youths that will play a crucial role in the ongoing rebuilding of Borno State as part of post insurgency response.
