The Kaduna State Government has announced the commencement of biometric verification of all civil servants in its employ with effect from Wednesday, June 24, 2015.

The biometric verification exercise is designed to provide the government an accurate and reliable record of its personnel numbers, and clean-up its payroll. Data collected from the exercise will enable the government to determine if the billions of naira that being expended monthly on staff salary were being paid to identifiable and verifiable civil servants, and make savings from an updated personnel record.


The Head of Service, Mrs.Alisabatu Dada Onazi, said that the biometric registration exercise would be conducted simultaneously in the three zones, from locations in Kaduna, Kafanchan and Zaria.
