I sold jobs for N1m, N1.5m at Federal Character Commission,  ex-worker

A desk officer of the Federal Character Commission, FCC, Haruna Kolo, has confessed to receiving millions of Naira from job-seekers on behalf of the chairman of the FCC, Muheeba Dankaka.

Kolo made the confession to an ad-hoc committee of the House of Representatives investigating the alleged job racketeering and abuse of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) by Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

Kolo said, “On the allegations of job racketeering, the FCC chairman instructed me to liaise with one Mr Shehu who is a personal driver and PA to the Taraba State’s Commissioner.

“As a desk officer, I’m responsible to take whoever is employed to IPPIS for capturing, no one can go there without a letter from the chairman or Human Resource officer of FCC.

“When she came, she wrote a letter to the Accountant-General instructing that no letter from FCC should be honored except she signs the letter. So, whenever there were new employments, she signs, gives to me and I take to the Accountant-General’s office for capturing.

“Shehu is the one that brought those who paid monies to my account for jobs, some paid N1m; others, N1.5m, all to my personal account, my Ecobank account. She asked me to give cash to her which I did through PoS. So, there’s no evidence of transfer or anything”.
