400 ghost workers discovered in Ondo football agency
About 400 ghost workers have been discovered on the payroll of the Ondo State Football Agency .
The discovery was made by a three-man Interim Management Committee set up by the state government to look into the administration of the agency and find a solution to its unimpressive performance of the state- owned football team.
The ODSFA is in charge of Sunshine Stars Football Club and the Sunshine Queen Football, Akure .
Speaking in Akure , the state capital , the chairman of the committee , Gbenga Elegbeleye , said 620 names were on the payroll of the agency .
He said , “ On assumption of office , we asked for a list of all the staff in the agency in the employ of the ODSFA and what we saw was surprising . A list of over 600 persons was submitted but when we did a headcount of the staff few days later , we discovered that the agency had over 200 workers .
“ The most annoying thing is that , there are no criteria to determine who earns more or less . We noticed that some (secondary ) school certificate holders were earning more than BSc holders . ”
According to him , corrupt practices going on in the agency is responsible for the inability of the ODSFA to pay salaries of players and officials of the Sunshine Stars .
