Immigration Recruitment: Fresh Facts Implicating Abba Moro Emerges [Documents]
The complications of the Minister of Interior, Abba Moro on the recent recruitment exercise of the Nigerian Immigration Service have been further exposed as investigation reveals that there was a cold war between the minister and the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Mr. David Parradang.
Investigation revealed that the Immigration Boss was never in the know that there were any plans to recruit for the organization that he heads until he saw an advert in a newspaper calling for application for interested candidates to fill vacant positions in the Immigration service. This prompted the Comptroller-General to write to the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prison Service board, protesting his exclusion from the recruitment plans. (see attached document)
The board was said to have advertised for vacant positions in the Immigration Service on the order of the Interior minister without consultation with the CGI.
It was further learnt that both Moro and Parradang had been on each other’s throat over who should conduct the recruitment exercise.
Investigations revealed that while the minister insisted that it was the responsibility of the Ministry of Interior to handle the recruitment as the presiding ministry, the comptroller general was of the view that the service should be allowed to handle the recruitment.
A source, who spoke to one of our correspondents on ‘the drama’ that preceded the immigration jobs tragedy, said the Immigration boss had argued that those to be given jobs would work with the NIS as such the service could not be left out.
It was learnt that at the height of the disagreement between Moro and Parradang, the ministry was said to have engaged a consultant, Drexet Tech Global, to conduct the exercise.
The leadership of the NIS was said to have been excluded from the processes that led to the engagement of the consultant.
Ministry officials, who should know about the consultant, said that not much information was released on the deal.
“Look, nobody really knew anything about this consultant. All we were told was that it was one man or one woman. It didn’t go beyond that. Honestly, I really can’t tell,” a ministry source said.
The source confirmed that Parradang had advised the minister that the exercise should be conducted in batches, but Moro refused.
