Bauchi State Assembly rejects NSCDC recruitment process, describes it as scam

The Bauchi State House of Assembly has rejected the recent recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in the state and described the process as a scam.

A statement signed and made available to journalists in Bauchi by the spokesman to the Speaker, Abdul Ahmad Burra, said the
Assembly rejected the recruitment exercise in its resolution on the matter on Thursday’s plenary.

The resolution followed the submission of the report of the House Joint Committee on Security and Public Service on the NSCDC recruitment exercise, led by Honourable Sabo Bako Sade.

The joint committee stated in its report that it confirmed that seven out of the 10 applicants whose names appeared on the list were non-indigenes as earlier communicated to the House by the Office of the Head of Civil Service and reported by the member representing Bauchi central, Jamilu Unary Dahiru.

It, therefore, recommended that the House rejects the outcome of the exercise and communicate same to NSCDC national headquarters, notifying it that even if the result of the exercise is released with the seven identified non-indigenes of the state it will be regarded as null and void to the people of Bauchi State.

The joint committee recommended that Dahiru be commended for alerting the House to the scam, which was later confirmed to be true after a thorough investigation by the House as part of its oversight functions.

After thoroughly studying the committee’s report, the House adopted all the recommendations contained in it and subsequently directed the Clerk of the House to immediately do the needful.

In another development, the House also adopted all the recommendations contained in the report submitted on the floor of the House by its Committee on Lands and Housing on a Bill for a Law to amend the Bauchi State Urban Planning Law.

The report said the committee invited critical stakeholders in land administration in the state and after deliberations, observed that the fundamental problem besetting physical planning in the state ranged from sprawling illegal layouts, overlapping of functions to lack of synergy with the Ministry of Lands and Survey.

The committee further stated in the report that Bauchi State was created in 1976, the Bauchi State Urban Planning Development Board (BSUPDB) had been under the governor’s office, adding that cumbersome bureaucratic procedures and inter-ministerial transfer of schedule of duties formed the basis of some unsolved problems.

The Committee, therefore, suggested that for effective service delivery and expedient practice, the BSUPDB should be better placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Lands and Survey as per provision of the Federal Act of Parliament.

Following the adoption of the report, the Deputy Majority Leader, Baballe Abubakar Dambam, requested the House to allow the Bill for a law to amend the Bauchi State Urban Planning Law be read for the third time, which was seconded by the Minority Leader, Bakoji Aliyu Bobbo.

The third reading was subsequently done after which the bill was passed by the House to be transmitted to the governor for his assent.(Dailypost)
