Rivers State Government has said  that it has saved about N1 billion through  the  Bank Verification Number, BVN, validation  of  civil servants  ordered by Governor Nyesom Wike.

Also, the state government  said it will embark on a comprehensive  biometric  confirmation  of  all civil servants  in the state as a further measure to  block all other existing  revenue leakages in the system.

The resolution  was reached at the State Executive Council  Meeting  held at Government House, Port Harcourt.
