Aliyu, APC Trade Words Over Recruitment Into State Civil Service



Gov. Babatunde Aliyu

The Niger state Governor, Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu and the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Niger state are in war of words over the planned mass employment into the state civil service by the government before the May 29 handover date.

APC, in a statement in Minna, accused the Niger state government led by Aliyu of setting booby traps for the incoming APC government through mass recruitment into the state civil service.

In a statement by its publicity secretary, Jonathan Vatsa in Minna, the party said it has uncovered a move by the government to embark on mass recruitment of workers in order to weigh down the incoming administration.

According to APC, “we consider this as wicked, callous and selfish because this will pitch the incoming government against the people should the government decide to embark on staff rationalization”

The party pointed out that by this singular act, it has further shown that the PDP-led administration under Governor Aliyu does not have the interest of the state and that of the entire workers of Niger state at heart.

APC further alleged that the government is also planning to recruit staff for the newly established University of Education in Minna and expressed surprised on why the government will want to embark on recruitment into a University that has no structure.

“There is no any structure for the University of Education other than the TERTFUND projects of the College of Education, Minna, the proposed site for the University”.

The Party accused the Governor of under funding the state-owned IBB University, Lapai since it assumed office, stressing that, “if the Governor can recall vividly, he will agreed that this was not the way he inherited IBB University, Lapai when he assumed office in 2007.
