8,000 jobs: Ayade directs applicants to village heads
Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River has directed applicants for the 8,000 automatic jobs to enlist through their respective village heads.
Ayade gave the directive in a statement by Mr Christian Ita, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, on Saturday in Calabar.
Ayade said that the state government decentralised the exercise due to the massive crowd witnessed at registration points.
According to him, all registrations for the automatic job placement will now be at the applicants’ village square or playgrounds.
“Names originating from the various family units are to be collated by village heads and forwarded to a local government coordinator that will be appointed by the COVID-19 Response Task Force.
“The list will be verified and authenticated by the paramount rulers of each local government area and submitted to the COVID-19 Response Task Force.
“Selected persons will be invited to an all-expense paid induction course in Calabar in batches and selected persons will then be posted to their areas of interest.
“Please note that the salary to be earned will be tax free as it falls within the range of income exempted from tax by the state tax exemption law,” Ayade said.
It would be recalled that on Wednesday, April 15, the governor, during the inauguration of the state food bank, announced an automatic employment for 8,000 youths in the state as part of his palliatives to youths.

Fake employment syndicate dupes applicants N3.2m in Bauchi
Bauchi State Government, on Tuesday, said it had arrested 10 civil servants who issued fake employment letters to 120 applicants in the state.
The syndicate had duped the applicants of over N3.2 million, the State Head of Service, Alhaji Abubakar Ma’aji, said in Bauchi while parading the suspects.
He said the 10 civil servants are serving in the state Ministry of Health and that of Works.
Ma’aji added that the fake appointment letters into various positions in the two ministries were issued between 2017 and 2019.
He explained that the syndicate capitalised on the appointment window approved by former governor, Muhammed Abubakar, for absorption of 1149 medical students into the health sector.
Ma’aji said the activities of the suspects was blown open following public outcry that in spite of a government embargo on employment, they had continued to recruit personnel under the guise of “Replacement”.
“I then directed all heads of MDAs to investigate the matter and based on that the state ministries of Health and Works uncovered the said syndicate.
“The syndicate even applied and obtained Personal Sub-head Numbers (PSN) from the treasury department for the fake appointments but were discovered to be same with some of the genuine students that were employed by the governmentt.
“It was discovered that the names of those given fake appointment letters were not in the government approved lists, hence a committee was setup under one Ibrahim Gambaki, Director of Finance and Administration in the ministry of Health to further investigate the matter,” he said.
“A former staff officer in the ministry of Works, Samaila Tijanni and Hajiya Nafisa Salihu as well as Mahmud Nasiru Illelah and seven others were, therefore, queried and later transferred to various ministries and agencies to give room for proper investigation.”
He added that the issue was further exposed when some of those issued the fake employment protested over non payment of their monthly salaries.
“With this development, we have to revisit the issue and discovered that the members of the syndicate were more than the earlier discovered.
“We have gotten them and will query them, and forward it to Senior Management Committee and when processed, will forward same to the office of the head of service for necessary action,” he said.
One of the suspects, Samaila Tijjani, who had retired from the state civil service, confessed that he had facilitated the employment of 61 applicants through the process.
However, one of the victims, Huseeini Mamba, said that they followed due process, applied for the positions and were issued appointment letters which they believed were genuine at the time.

You lack legal rights to file suit challenging appointment of 4 Supreme Court justices, court tells applicant
Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court, Abuja, on Friday. held that
the Incoporated Trustees of Access to Justice lacked the locus standi to institute a suit challenging the
appointment of Supreme Court Justices.
The applicant had, in a suit
marked /1460/2019, asked the court to nullify the appointment of four apex justices made by the National Judicial Council (
on the grounds that it did not comply with the extant Revised the council’s guidelines and procedural rules for the appointment of judicial officers of all superior court of records in Nigeria adopted by the NJC and which came into force on Nov. 3, 2014.
Listed as respondents in the matter are the Federal Judicial Service Commission; the NJC; the Chief Justice of Nigeria; the Senate and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Nigeria News Agency reports that the council had, in October 2019, recommended the appointment of four new Justices for the Supreme Court to President Muhammadu Buhari for approval.
They are Justices Adamu Jauro (North-East), Emmanuel A. Agim, (South-South), C. Oseji (South-South) and Helen M. Ogunwumiju (South-West).
In his judgment, Justice Ekwo struck out the suit after holding that the applicat lacked the locus standi (legal authority) to file the suit.
Ekwo upheld the objections of the respondents to the effect that the applicant lacked the locus standi to initiate the action.
The judge said that the applicant acted outside its objectives set out in its constitution which did not include engaging in public interest litigation.
Besides, the court held that Section 590 (1) of the Companies and Allied Act (CAMA) did not give the applicant the authority to engage itself in what it called “pleased interest litigation to the extent that it has the authority to initiate this type of suit.”
“I must state that Nigeria does not yet have a statutory framework for the registration or operation of Non- Governmental Organisation (NGOs).
“In other words, there is no legislation that deals with the registration or operation of NGO in Nigeria and I hope that the National Assembly and even the applicant will take a cue from other Commonwealth countries like Uganda (the Non-Governmental Act, 2016) and Zambia (Non-Governmental Act).
“These countries, apart from having enactments that, are similar to Part C of the CAMA, do have enactments that govern the operations of NGOs.
Ekwo added that the bodies or associations that are registered under Section 590 (1) of the CAMA, are by all intent and purposes, “non-contentious; non-confrontational; non-combative and non-litigations association for their objects are limited to religious, educational etc.”
He held that “anybody or association of persons who obtains registration under Part C of the CAMA and engages in any activity other than the ones mentioned in Section 590 (1) of the CAMA is an illegality.
“There is no provisions under Part C of the CAMA that makes provisions for the registration of anybody or groups of persons whose true intent is to supervise, superintend or monitor arms or agencies of government or interfere in their business.
“I am sure that if the applicant had indicated to the Coporate Affairs Commission (CAC) that the real object in it’s mind is to engage in public interest litigation of the nature of this suit, the CAC would have refused to register it under Part C of the CAMA.
“If the applicant is now telling this court that it has locus standi to engage in public interest litigation by virtue of its registration under section 590 (1) of the CAMA, then the registration was a camouflage and a fraud and ought to be revoked.
“I find that the applicant has not established any credible evidence tendered upon the originating summons that it is a coporate body registered by CAC.
“I also find that the applicant has not established by any credible evidence that it has a constitution registered under Part C of the CAMA.
“Therefore, the applicant has acted ultra vires the provision of the said Section 590 (1) of the CAMA by bringing this action.
“I therefore resolve the issue of locus standi against the applicant and in favour of the respondents,” the judge delivered.
