Reps To Probe Secret Recruitment By MDAs
The House of Representatives has resolved to probe an alleged secret recruitment by Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
This followed a motion of moved by Yusuf Gagdi from Plateau State who claimed that MDAs are engaging in recruitment excises without following the due process.
He said, “Note that the public and civil service is the largest employer of labour. Being the largest employers, many Nigerians try to seek employment in the MDAs.
“The FG lacks the capacity to employ all, however, there is a need for the employment to respect the federal character principle.
“These opening are not filled on the basis of federal character, rather, the use of social standing, ethnoreligious sentiments, jettisoning the federal character principle.
On his own part, Ayika Valentine of Anambra state said the eradication of clandestine recruitment in MDAs will curtail dangerous migration, adding that asked his colleagues should consider what they would be remembered for as representatives.
He said, “What is important for the people we represent is not about the grammar but how does what we do affect them? With what is going on here, you will agree with me some of our young ones that die in deserts is because they don’t have someone in the corridors of power.”
The lawmakers resolved to set up a panel that would investigate the matter and report back in three weeks.
