March 19, 2014 – Families Of NIS Recruitment Victims To Get Automatic Employment

NIS Recruitment Victims Paid Ultimate Sacrifice For Their Families…….

Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday ordered the cancellation of the nationwide recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, during which at least 19 applicants lost their lives and scores of others were injured last Saturday.

The cancellation of the recruitment exercise is coming on the heels of the widespread condemnation that trailed the tragic incident.

The President also ordered the conduct of a fresh recruitment into the NIS.

Labaran Maku, the Minister of Information who revealed this after Wednesday’s weekly meeting of the Federal Executive Council, also said President Jonathan directed that the families of all those who lost their loved one would be given three slots automatically in a fresh recruitment exercise ordered by the President.

One of those to enjoy the automatic employment must be a woman.

Also, Maku added that those who sustained injuries and are currently hospitalised will be given automatic employment in the new recruitment exercise.

Maku revealed that a Committee headed by the Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission with membership made up of the CG NIS, representatives of the Inspector-General of Police and the heads of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Coprs, Nigerian Prisons Service, State Security Service and the Federal Road Safety Commission will conduct the fresh recruitment exercise into the Immigration Service.

There have been calls for the sack of the Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro, the supervising minister of NIS and David Paradang, the Comptroller General of NIS over the incident which resulted from poor organisation and crowd control that led to stampedes, deaths and injuries at the ttadia where the exercise was conducted for thousands of applicants across the country. President Jonathan had on Monday queried the Minister and the NIS CG over the exercise. The President had summoned Moro and Paradang to his office where he queried them about the exercise.

The President also informed delegates at the National Conference which he inaugurated last Monday that he has ordered investigations into the circumstances that led to the incident.

P.M.NEWS cannot confirm if the President will follow the cancellation exercise up with the sack of Moro as Nigerians were demanding as at the time of filing in this report.

The House of Representatives and the Senate had on Tuesday also asked the President to sack the Minister over the tragedy that followed the recruitment exercise anchored by a consultancy firm Drexel Technical Global Limited.

Over 700,000 applicants paid N1000 to access the portal.

    I never see where human life as as commonised and belittled as Nigeria.
    Maybe its because of over population. That is why we don’t value human life at all. If you cannot create life, u should do your best to avoid blood soaked hands. Whether GEJ like it or not, he has added more blood to his hands. He needs to remove his focus from the big men and godfathers he is trying to please ….stop putting people in political positions because of name, and put people with knowledge and integrity to steer Nigeria into greatness. The Nigeria SHAME needs to STOP.

    This pronouncement by president Badluck Jonathan shows the intelligent levels of our politicians. So in Nigeria today, job seekers must sacrifice one of their family members in order to get an automatic job slots in any federal job recruitment. This is so shameful and is the worse decision ever from any federal executive meeting in Nigeria history. This president has the lowest mentality of all Nigerian presidents in the past. Today, I come to a conclusion that late General Sanni Abacha was far better than this stupid president in decision making. The president did not address the issue of unemployment among our youths that are willing and ready to work. He did not even tell Nigerian people the punishments or charges to be levied against the killer of these innocent Nigerian that were killed simply for seeking for jobs they will never get in that fake recruitment exercise. The director of NIS and his criminal staffs scammed over one million youths by illegally obtaining #1,000 from them as the recruitment fee. These animals in human body have no consciences whatsoever for stealing from poor people that are jobless. This do – nothing president thinks the best compensation for the families of those that were brutally killed by the NIS director and criminal gangs is to give each of them three slots from the so called fresh recruitment. This is a shame of a nation. What happen if none of the family members have the required or minimum qualifications for the available job positions? This Jonathan does not possess any common sense to rule over 160 millions great Nigerians. As I’ve said in my previous comments on this media, president Badluck Jonathan will end up in 2015 as the worst president in Nigeria history. This idiot was never ready to rule over 160 millions great Nigerian people; he was imposed on late president Yaradua by criminal minded Olusegun Obasanjo. He eventually became Nigerian president because of sudden death of president Yaradua in office. Now I strongly believed that any offer from criminal Obasanjo to Nigeria people will never yields any good fruit. The killer of these innocent Nigerians that were killed at various recruitment camps set up by NIS director and criminal team should get life imprisonment for their murder. They should also be punished or charge to court for exploiting million of Nigerians in their fake jobs recruitment tests. This president can knee before pastors, Kings, mothers, fathers and whatever, but he will not win any election again in Nigeria. If he believes that he can bribe pastors, Imans, Obas, Emirs, and Obis with the stolen $20 billion missing from the NNPC account for him to win the 2015 election, then he will be overthrow by the military. These vision less politicians at all levels of government have lost their sense of reasonings. They are the best in the world at looting their national treasury. They have made our nation a talking point wherever corruption is been discussed anywhere in the world. Just this week, the U.S government released Corruption Report on Nigeria over one year period, the U.S. government estimated that about $7 billion were stolen by all our criminal political leaders at all levels of government. This report to my greatest surprise did not exclude this criminal president Badluck Jonathan, his VP, Senators and almost all our elected officials from both “Houses of Looters” in Abuja. The question I keep asking myself and many good Nigerians is how come these criminals keep ruling our dear country. My people is time for a change in Nigeria our beloved country. Let us vote these criminal politicians out of their various offices come 2015.

    I strongly suggest that people with no common sense should not post their nonsense on this web. If anybody is still supporting our failing government something must be wrong with that person. We need reformation in Nigeria. How long are we going to continue this suffering? Innocent people were been killed every sinlge day, our government is not doing anything aboutit. All they do is buying luxury house in abroad. They come to America all the time, seing beautiful roads, good medical care and constant electricity, but they would never think about how to make Nigeria a better place. All they do is to steal our money. What a pity!!! The worst part is that most Nigerians now sees poverty as part of life. Power must change hand. Shameless government.
