Cameroon saves 4.7b fCFA francs after civil servants census

APAnews | Cameroon saved 4.7 billion CFA francs this year, following the physical counting of civil servants and state agents that took place from April 20 to July 10 2018, the Minister of Finance, Louis Paul Motazé, announced Monday in Douala.

He told a press conference that the 4.7 billion CFA francs were obtained through salary suspensions, resulting in monthly budget savings of 394.7 million CFA francs.

According to the minister, the salaries of 2,000 civil servants and state agents, whose names do not appear on the lists of physically counted agents, were suspended, in addition to the salaries of 645 deceased persons.

The Cameroonian government has identified 310,000 public officials and 285,000 civil servants. Among public servants, 2000 failed to respond and 4,621 had their census invalidated for various reasons.

The census of civil servants and state agents has been in the pre-litigation stage since October 26, and ends definitively on January 4, 2019. After this date, no claims will be accepted.

    The state saved 4.7 billion FCFA from exposing ghost workers.

    However, the state lost more than 10 billion FCFA for declaring the 24.12.2018 and 31.12.2018 as public holidays.

  2. what we have in africa is not corruption but simple lack of patriotism resulting from an extraverted system of mental construction.if anybody want to know what corruption really is,read any book about the cause of the US subprimes crisis.
    in our situation corruption is not the cause of industrial stagnation.what we need are women and men with courage to organise the industrial sector from the farm,storing facilities,industrial transformation to finished and cemi finished products,and commercialization.
    each village should have its own farms and industries to creat more wealth providing youths decent jobs.
    it is when you have money that you craft a system to manage it.
