House orders employment of 176 injured immigration applicants

THE House of Representatives has directed that 176 candidates offered employment in the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) by former President Goodluck Jonathan be issued letters of appointment.
They added that 48 members of the deceased families be deployed and their salaries effected.

According to Nation the lawmakers gave the order yesterday while adopting the report of the Femi Gbajabiamila-led three man panel investigating the ill-fated recruitment into NIS.

They blamed the power tussle between the presidential committee set up by President Jonathan and the Civil Defence, Fire, Immigration and Prisons Board on the appointment for the disregard of the presidential directive.

The lawmakers’ action followed a petition by a victim on the non-implementation of the presidential directive.
