Jonathan Leaves Fresh Mess For President Buhari To Tidy

We have seen this happen before and it continues to happen every four years. I often wonder why people hardly pay attention to the fact history will continue to repeat itself. That is exactly the reason why people continue to repeat the same thing over and over again and expect a different result. It just cannot happen that way.

Former Goodluck Jonathan may have saved the nation from the impending doom that was predicted by a large number of people before the presidential election, but the fact that he absorbed over 530 aides into few days before his departure may have portrayed him in some bad light. The report below, from The Punch, highlights the mess that has been handed over to President Muhammadu Bahari.

The crisis in the federal civil service appeared to have worsened with career civil servants protesting against the absorption of 530 aides and cronies of former President Goodluck Jonathan into the civil service in the last days of the past administration. The new recruits into the service were also said to have been installed in high positions, from assistant directors upward.

Already, to protest against the manner the last promotion examination to directors’ level was handled by the Federal Civil Service Commission.

The released the list of newly-promoted directors in October 2014.

The six aggrieved deputy directors – , , , , and – filed an action at the National Industrial Court on March 26, 2015 to question the exercise.

Most senior civil servants are said to be unhappy with the FCSC, a situation which is said to have been made worse by the Jonathan recruits into the service.

A director in one of the sensitive ministries told our correspondent that the FCSC, through ‘‘crafty schemes’’, brought into the civil service “numerous aides of the , Vice President Namadi Sambo and ministers.

The director, who asked not to be named, said, “These new recruits are placed on very high grades as assistant directors, deputy directors, and directors.

It was gathered from a reliable source that their appointments were made through a “regularisation window’’, which the FCSC backdated to December, 2014.

“Through regularisation, fresh graduate appointees were placed on Grade Level 12 instead of Grade Level 08, while some others were upgraded to very high levels in defiance of extant rules. We now have letters of regularisation flying around the ministries.

“No fewer than 530 people are being regularised into the service from different backgrounds, including unscheduled private enterprises. These atrocities are responsible for the depletion of vacancies, which ought to be utilised for the promotion of deserving serving officers in the federal civil service.”
