Fake doctor to refund nine-year wage to FG

Contrary to the civil service regulations,
controversial Martins Ugwu, who has been
working since 2006 in the Ministry of Health
using the name, Dr. George Davidson Daniel, was
offered a job a week after he submitted his
application for employment.
The Federal Government has however ordered the
Departments of Finance and Accounts and
Human Resources to do a thorough computation
of what he had earned for nine years with a view
to ensuring that he returns the money to the
government’s coffers.
“The ministry is currently computing all salaries
and allowances which accrued to Ugwu during
his mischievous sojourn in the ministry, for full
retrieval by the relevant law enforcement
agencies,” the Permanent Secretary in the
Ministry of Health, Mr. Linus Awute, said.
Awute also said that since the fake doctor
assumed duty at the Health ministry, he had
passed only one promotion examination in 2013,
which placed him on Grade Level 13 from Grade
Level 12.
Ugwu was due to be promoted as Assistant
Director in the Nigerian Centre for Disease
Control, a parastatal of the Federal Ministry of
Health, before he was exposed.
