    Proper Database is key and if someone or individual with employee number has use it employee number to sign for 2-3 months you can peg it easily to determine non existence of such a person or employee. Very easy and simple. Leaders of this nation refuse to use technology to weed and clean the system. No wonder the public sector is full of ghost names.
