Bayelsa Government to introduce workers biometric attendance register

The Bayelsa Government on Wednesday said it would introduce an Automated Biometrics Attendance Register (ABAR) for workers in the eight local government areas.

The state Commissioner for Local Government and Community Development, Mr James Dugo, announced this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yenagoa.

“The state government’s decision to introduce the register at the local governments is based on the need for growth and development at the council level.

“The reforms and re-positioning plan for the third tier of government is to allow for effective service delivery at the grassroots.

“If the register is fully implemented, only staff who discharge their official duties diligently in the month will receive salary,” he said.

The commissioner advised employees of the councils to fully participate in the electronic enrolment system.

According to Dugo, “if you are not captured, you stand the risk of being declared ghost workers because only the committed ones will earn their salaries”.

“This bad attitude to work is depriving the people at the grassroots of their democracy dividend,” he said.

The commissioner said that government would continue with its effort to ensure that people in the rural communities enjoyed the dividends of democracy. (NAN)
