Protest Rocks RMAFC Office Over Encroachment Into Official Duties Of Staff by fergie006: 4:34pm On Feb 18
Staff of the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) on Tuesday disrupted official activities at the commission when they clashed with the Commissioners.

The Nation learnt that trouble had been brewing in the commission for some time but it came to a head on Tuesday afternoon when staff of the Commission said they couldn’t take it anymore.

It was gathered that around 12 noon, the decision was taken by the angry staff to lock the commission down.

The reason for the lockdown was the alleged encroachment into the official duties of the staff who are career civil servants.

An official of the Commission who pleaded for anonymity told journalists that “board members as Commissioners were encroaching on staff official schedule.”

When the protest started, the angry staff of the Commission locked the main gate used by the commissioners. Caught in the protest was the Chairman of the Commission Engr Elias Mbam who was prevented from leaving the building.

Other commissioners present when the protest started where also prevented from leaving the building while those outside were barred from coming into the Commission.

The security men on duty prevented some journalists from covering the protest and went ahead to seize their phones and deleted the protest photos. They claimed that they did not want the matter going public.

The staff who spoke with journalists in confidence said: “since the board was inaugurated, they have been encroaching into our responsibility. They are policy makers and not policy implementers but they have taken over the day to day running of the Commission from us the official staff.”

He went to say that “today, we want to put an end to it. We locked the gate. No going out for them,” he said.

sad

"We locked the gate"

"Seized phones of journalists and stabbed them to death"

Why is the the heart of man so wicked?

Why not just flog the commissioners on their bumbum and send them home?

Is this not kidnapping and conspiracy to murder?!

I borrowed my colleagues glasses to read this news now I'm upset and have broken it. What nonsense.

This madness in Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) is a miniature of the happenings in MDAs under Buhari, ones you are from the South (especially South-East) and you are appointed into any position as leader/head, you are not expected to change anything along the "fighting corruption mantra"...no matter what the president says, if you do, you will be sorry.

I bet the Chairman stop the illicit flow of money and collecting of bribe, that's the work he stopped them from doing...corrupt fools

Tell me, which civil servant in Nigeria wants to work were he's not pocketing side money or fathomed allowances?

One Nigeria and Buhari's fight against corruption are the biggest scam of the century.

I am not understanding.which one is encroaching on their duties. If Oga refuses to send office boy on an errand rather he goes himself. Should office boy not be happy? Really I am not understanding.
Civil servants. It is well with Nigeria.

Silly talk. You think you have made sense.

The Commissioners are agents of Senators and reps who keep awarding them stupendous financial remuneration. Corruption begins and ends at the RMAFC. The staff are witnesses to the sleaze going on. Now they want their own part of the action.

Mr.man I agree with your first assertion where you said RMAFC was a miniature of happenings in MDAs. But I will disagree with you where you said Chairman stopped illicit flow of money....
Perhaps you don't know what is going on in most MDAs when it comes to the issue of Board of Commissioners. They are mostly interested in contracts because they award it to their companies, they fill employment with their cronies, they interfere in day to day civil servant activities. In some agencies, you may not be able to even recognize a Commissioner from a Civil Servant because they move from one dept to another pursuing files. In fact agencies stinks. These commissioners are worst than the careers civil servants.
