The Adamawa State Government says it has reinstated 1,699 workers who were disengaged from service by the past administration.
Solomon Kumangar, the Director General, media and communications to Gov Ahmadu Fintiri, announced this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Monday.
He said the affected workers were 699 batch D teachers who were earlier recruited and deployed to primary and secondary schools, saying they had been reinstated to service.
He added that 1,000 health workers were also reinstated into the service, saying their earlier disengagement was due to the faulty process in their recruitment by the previous administration.
“We conducted discreet investigation to determine anomalies with a view to right the wrong committed during their recruitment as we don’t witchunt anybody, ” he said.
Mr Kumangar noted that the present administration had recently recruited 70 additional Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) to enhance the road traffick sector.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the Adamawa state government had employed 1,113 technical health workers who were deployed to rural areas for wider and effective coverage of existing health facilities.
