You need to read Kwara state governor’s words slamming corrupt officials

 – The BVN system is being introduced to civil servants in Kwara state

 – Governor Ahmed has pledged to take action against corrupt civil servants in his state

 – He believes the BVN system will make it far easier to limit the effects of corruption

Kwara state governor, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed, has vowed to prosecute any civil servant found collecting multiple salaries in the state at the end of the on-going Bank Verification Number (BVN) alignment.

Ahmed Governor Ahmed, who gave the warning in an interview with journalists in Ilorin, condemned those involved in corruption.


“It is criminal and ungodly for anyone to be collecting multiple salaries from the same source, while some of our brothers and sisters in parastatals and institutions are rarely able to collect their salaries on time,” he said.

“We will check how it is possible for multiple names to enter into one BVN. We must check what happened because if we don’t know what happened, we would not be able to check it in future.”


Governor Ahmed has made anti-corruption initiatives a priority

The governor assured Kwarans that the on-going exercise would lead to the emergence of a robust, properly designed Kwara state database for workers who are serving the public.

Governor Ahmed went on to say the scheme would also give the management information on entry into and exit from the service and other issues pertaining to the service.


The BVN is a biometric identification system first introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria to curb corruption.

The system uses unique biometric data such as fingerprints and facial recognition technology.

Biometric data makes it considerably more difficult to commit fraud or corruption offences and greatly increases the security of bank accounts.
