No Budgetary Provision For 2014 NIS Recruitment – Paradang by agentofhell(m): 10:55pm On Jun 10, 2016
A former Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Mr. David Paradang, told a Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday that there was no budgetary provision for the botched recruitment exercise into the service in which some applicants died in March 2014.

Paradang was testifying before Justice Nnamdi Dimgba as the first prosecution witness in the ongoing trial of a former Minister of Interior, Abba Moro.

The Economic and Financial Crime Commission is prosecuting Moro, alongside a former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Anastasia Daniel-Nwobia; and a deputy director in the ministry, F. O Alayebami, before Justice Dimgba.

Also standing trial along with them is the contracting firm that was given the recruitment job, Drexel Tech Nigeria Limited.

The accused are being prosecuted on 11 counts bordering on procurement fraud and money laundering.

They were alleged to have defrauded a total of 675,675 Nigerian job seekers to the tune of N675,675,000 through alleged fraudulent collection of N1,000 per applicant as online application fee.

Paradang had told the court when he started his testimony on Wednesday that Moro did not inform him about the recruitment exercise until he found out in a newspaper advertisement.

Led in evidence by the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Aliyu Yusuf, the witness continued on Friday saying that the Service was not financially ready for the exercise as of the time it was conducted in March 2014‎.

The witness was Comptroller General of the NIS from June 2013 to August 2015.

He said, “We had no money to fund the recruitment exercise. But on 14 March, 2014, I was told by NIS zonal controllers that they had received N300, 000 each from the service’s board.

“The N300, 000 was inadequate as it could not even rent a venue for the recruitment exercise. There were supposed to be ambulances and allowances for the NIS personnel who conducted the job exercise.

“On March 15, 2014, the day of the recruitment exercise, I received calls and text messages from my deputies about the stampede that took place in the exercise across the country, where 15 job seekers died while 165 others were injured.

“At the end of the day, we had 15 casualties and 165 injured persons.”

He said former President Goodluck Jonathan’s directive for the employment of three relatives each of the deceased job applicants was later cancelled‎.

Last Wednesday, Paradang had testified that he wrote a letter to the Secretary of the Board, Dr. Attahiru, on September 9, 2013, expressing his dismay over the recruitment advertisement made without his knowledge.

The defence counsel had opposed the request by the prosecution to tender the said letter as exhibit.

‎Justice Dimgba had adjourned till Friday to deliver a ruling on the objection.

Ruling on Friday, ‎Kustice Dimgba dismissed the objection and admitted the document as exhibit but ordered the prosecution to pay the required fees within seven days

The judge ruled that the defect in the admissibility of the document was curable through the payment of the requisite fees.

He adjourned further trial till July 1 and 5.

Thank God stealing is now corruption. I keep wondering how all these financial atrocities were perpetrated and our president of then was cool with it, it baffles me.

Few weeks ago I read about Metuh begging to return 400 Million as said by his lawyer, that's the Nigeria I want for myself and children, not a Nigeria where we celebrate thieves, and when you see the government chasing past thieves you'd hear people say "witch hunt", how pathetic! As long as a witch is hunted be it APC/PDP corrupt witch I don't give a damn, as long as politicians get to feel the heat that stealing money now has consequences I'm ok with that.

in this subject, it's not about economic crisis, there was no budgetary allocation, it was just a political action.
