Reps reject move to probe civil service recruitment

Most members of the House of Representatives yesterday rejected a motion seeking to investigate the 2016/2017 Federal Civil Service recruitment exercise.

A motion by Henry Nwawuba (PDP, Imo) alleged that there were massive anomalies in the recruitment exercise.

The lawmaker argued that many of the applicants had their dreams of working for the Federal Government dashed by failure of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC) to inform them of further processes regarding the exercise.

He said the exercise was alleged to have lacked transparency and was in breach of the federal character principles.

He therefore prayed that the committees on public service matters and federal character be mandated to determine whether the recruitment exercise was done properly.

However, when Speaker Yakubu Dogara put the motion to voice vote, majority of the lawmakers rejected it. Surprised by the voting pattern, Dogara called for another vote, in which the result was the same.
