The Public Complaints Commission (PCC), an agency of Federal Government directly accountable to National Assembly has secretly recruited 149 Nigerians without following any of the fundamental civil service rules for public engagement.
PCC is an agency set up to provide platforms where the general public could register their displeasure against all form of sleaze, maladministration and general misdemeanour in the Nation of Nigeria thereby solidifying and entrenching democracy and protecting human rights.
The organization gave out appointment letters to their new illegally acquired staff on September 8th 2016.
Of the 149 new employees, 124 are reportedly from the Northern part of the country while the remaining 25 hail from the southern Nigeria.
One of the beneficiaries of the fraudulent recruitment who anonymously spoke to this writer said that she got the offer through the assistant of a family friend from Kaduna State.
The beneficiary, a lady is a 2012 graduate of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State hail from Gbonyin Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
According to her, the new recruits who are mainly the children and relations of Nigerian politicians and top civil servants from the north and few from the south are currently in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory to perfect their documentation.
Recall that federal government agencies such as Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Federal Inland Revenue Services (FIRS), Nigeria Prison Services (NPS), Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) etc had earlier this year recruited children of political and business bigwigs in Nigeria without recourse to federal character and other rules of civil service engagement.
No disciplinary measure has been taken against any one while those who were illegally recruited are still on the pay roll of the government accruing salaries and allowances.
Attached is the appointment letter of one of those who fraudulently benefited from the latest secret recruitment.
