NIS recruitment deaths: Jonathan queries Moro and Paradang

President Goodluck Jonathan has queried the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro, and the Comptroller-General of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Mr. David Paradang, over the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) recruitment exercise which went awry.

Reports nationwide say that approximately 20 deaths occurred in major cities of Nigeria in various stadia as stampedes that claimed approx 20 lives at the venues of the recruitment exercise by the NIS on Saturday played out in the media.

The duo of Moro and Paradang were summoned to the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to explain the circumstances that led to the incident which a source said had portrayed the present administration in serious bad light.

On their arrival, the two NIS recruitment bosses met for about three hours with the Chief of Staff to the President, Brig.-Gen. Jones Arogbofa (Rtd.) in his office, who later took them for the meeting with the president.

None of them were willing to talk to State House correspondents at the end of their encounter with the President.

Unconfirmed reports say that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Muhammed Abubakar was ordered by the president to investigate the NIS death matter.

It will be recalled that the organizers used a consultant to collect N1000 each from about 875,000 applicants nationwide, who paid to the consultant’s bank account.

Many Nigerians are of the opinion that this NIS recruitment exercise was a fluke, a fraudulent exercise to fleece poor and hungry job-seeking young Nigerians and their equally hungry and anxious parents, of their hard-earned monies.
