Lawmakers of the Senate said that some officials of the FCSC have been conducting secret recruitment while claiming that there is an embargo on employment by the Nigerian government.
The Punch had reported that, the chairman of the Senate committee on federal character and inter-governmental affairs, Danjuma La’ah, while defending the 2022 budget report before the appropriation committee said investigations have shown that there is an imaginary embargo on employment across the country.
La’ah’s information also forced the Senate to direct the heads of various federal ministries, departments and agencies to produce the circular mandating an embargo on employment by the FG.
According to Tribune, La’ah further making his submission said his committee had directed all the MDAs to increase their personnel cost with a view to possible openings for employment for some unemployed Nigerians.
He added that his committee is desirous to ensure that millions of Nigerian youths who are currently unemployed are gainfully employed in the shortest period.
