Senate to end underground recruitment into federal agencies, parastatals – Saraki
President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has revealed how the national assembly intends to end backdoor employments in the country.
The Senate President said that the Upper Legislative Chamber will accelerate the passage of the Existing Vacancies in the Federal Civil Service (Prohibition) Bill, once it resumes in September.
This was contained in a statement signed by Saraki’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu.
Saraki said in the statement that the Bill, which is currently due for Second Reading, will be given priority as one of the Senate’s legislative interventions to curb the increasing rates of illegal recruitment into federal government agencies and parastatals.
The statement said, “The Existing Vacancies Bill will put in place clear-cut procedures that will help to curb and possibly end the trend of ‘silent or underground recruitment.
“This country belongs to every Nigerian, and as such, all vacancies that exist in the Federal Civil Service must be properly advertised to give every Nigerian that meet the requirement a chance to apply.”
