“I understand that if you are not a Son or a Daughter of a Governor, Minister, Senator, SGF, or even a high-ranking member of the National Assembly that place is not meant for you.
” If you’re not coming from the office of Mr. President or vice president, then ready to pay close to ten million for you to secure a job there as a graduate.
“I’m so sorry for what has become of the Nation that we the younger generation are not proud of,” Adudu alleged.
He also alleged that the Executive Chairman had recently employed dozens of persons from his home state of Niger.
He observed that the employment principles of federal character were not duly followed which has undermined the unity and cohesion of Nigeria the country’s leadership is fighting tooth and nail to protect.
“Today we found ourselves in a country where there are only two citizens, the rich and the poor, the bourgeois and the masses, first-class citizens and second class, the high class, and the low class, the powerful and the powerless.
” Few others are above the law while the rest are victims of the manipulative Justice, the commoners are the so-called Nigerians while the elites and their families are the real Nigerians who ought to work in places like FIRS, CBN, NNPC, NIDC,
“I was reliably gathered recently 500 people were employed secretly through an interview conducted in South West Nigeria where only candidates from who is who in the country were appointed to work with the FIRS, same place they will tell you no vacant post. I’m tired of what is happening in my country etc.” He cried
Adudu urged the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the employment and expose those racketeering employment in the country, especially in those agencies considered juicy places.
He said investigating what happening with FIRS through the ministry of the Directorate of employment will give President Buhari a good perspective of what is happening in the country.
“I’m sure President Buhari is not aware of all these abnormalities going on in many sectors of our country if he knows he will not allow this.
“Let the FIRS Chairman and the federal character commission be sanctioned over commercializing employment at the expense of unemployed Nigerians who are from less privileged backgrounds.
“Mr. President Sir, Nigerians believe you when you said you are for all, and you are for nobody. Why taking the exercise to Lagos and the world is accusing Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the APC Presidential flag bearer as the one adding salt to the nation’s injury of unemployment.
” We are anxiously waiting for the President’s intervention to stop and cancel the employment that only favored some specific class of individuals. Our parents are also taxpayers and as such we are bonafide Nigerians that deserve to work anywhere without knowing anybody.” Adudu stated
He accused Nami of selfish treatment to none Niger indigenes and those from a less privileged background.
