One-month old public official in Nigeria


KANO, Nigeria — A one-month old baby, said to hold an ordinary national diploma, was on the Nigerian government payroll... The name of the infant was recently found on the payment voucher of a local government council in northern Nigeria during an exercise to fish out ghost employees from a bloated workforce...  [It] is a "widespread trend in the local government service where senior officials stuff payrolls with the names of their wives and children".
