As reported by Daily Trust, Bichi disclosed this while briefing journalists, on Friday, November 24.

“Most of those employed did not undergo processes of screening and recruitment interviews as expected by the service regulations; employed were found to have suspicious or forged certificates, while many non-indigenes were employed despite a large number of qualified unemployed indigenes roaming.

“The employment did not take into consideration the actual manpower needs of the respective MDAs but was influenced by the desire to tie down the new Administration financially; our streets and those employed were wrongly placed through deployment to non-career posts or the calling of their respective qualifications.

He added that based on the recommendation of the Technical Committee, Governor Yusuf approved the reinstatement of a total of 9,332 staff across 51 MDAs that were found eligible by the committee.
