The Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Hajiya Zainab Ahmed, has said there is no plan by the Federal Government to retrench civil servants.
This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by Mr Charles Dafe, Director of Information in the Ministry.
The statement quoted Ahmed to have said this when Mr Makhtar Diop, Vice President African Region, World Bank, visited the minister in Abuja.
It, however, stated that the present administration was committed to removing ghost workers from the public system.
The statement also said that the Federal Government was makinga thorough scrutiny on public expenditure to guarantee better returns on expenditure.
“This is to ensure that Nigerians receive better returns on their expenditure, especially, in the productive sector of the economy,’’ it said.
