Can I Be A Businessman As A Federal Government Worker by mytravels: 8:00am On Feb 25, 2022
Hi guys

Please i have a question, the way i am seeing EFCC and ICPC confiscating corrupt politicians and government workers assets, what if ones money is not from stealing public funds?

I am still young and have this big dream of becoming rich, and i know with government job you will never be rich( i mean rich).

So what if i start business and it become successful such that i have assets everywhere, will EFCC still seize those assets thinking i got them by stealing public funds, or what did Nigerian law says?

Hmmmmmmmm, except farming (livestock and crops), stocks and shares, you are not legally allowed to engage in any business, however, so many are doing it, just pray you don't enter the bad book of those wey get power pass you for work.

Buhari's son Yusuf the biker has Assets and Liquid cash everywhere, He is not a federal govt worker and he is not a businessman. Guess where he got the assets from...

Moral of the story: You can become anything you want to be.

He should be concerned about the Civil Service Rules allowing him to do business with government paid time or not.
I don't think it is allowed.

Do you think ..Efcc and Icpc,.. or AMCON
just go after people because they have assets? Go and channel your question Rightly..?

They only go after Civil Servants that stole public funds to enrich themselves..

Even if you are a Federal Government worker and business man..

If by crook you corner Federal Government project like Road construction ... You collect Money and you didn't excute what the project is meant for...

You brought fleet of cars.. you gave Tithes in millions. ..you throw parties they spray money...

You built estates..

One day monkey go go market no go come back..

Means that you will be caught ..

Assuming you cross the hurdle of getting approval to do business with government paid time, you will need to keep your tax records as proof that you made the wealth legit, if/when EFCC comes for you.

I don't know as a civil servant but as a politician, you must declare your assests and also step down from your company as board of directors before running for a post. I don't know if same rules applies to federal workers
Re: Can I Be A Businessman As A Federal Government Worker by Nobody: 2:22pm On Feb 25, 2022
Potential thief spotted! Because you can’t get the kind rich wey dey your eyes with Government work except you thief!

Why are you thinking of EFCC if you don’t have intentions of stealing ? Will court jail you if there’s no evidence of your crime ?

I think you're only allowed to FARM as a public sector worker. But why not shun the civil service, face business and become rich?

Op you can't serve two master at a time. According to the civil service rules, it's an aberration for you to be engaged in businesses with exception to farming.

There's a very good business that will pay you forever and you will hand it over to those after you if you can be consistent in 2-4yrs period without any government agency or whatsoever coming after you...I could link you to a zoom briefing, chat or call 08064320779 for more info

Just confirm if the code of conduct act allows you to do both. Else it will be conflict of interest, which may still be punishable offence
