Lawyer, Unemployed Graduate Sue FCC, FIRS Over Illegal, Secret Recruitment of 370 Persons

A legal practitioner, Rupert Irikefe and an unemployed graduate of gas building, Sunny Sekegor, have forced the Federal Character Commission (FCC) and the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) under the watchful eye of the Federal High Court in Abuja, over what they discovered to illegal and secret recruitment of 370 people on April 21, 2016 without taking after their own rules for recruitment.

The two in a suit documented and made accessible to journalists in Benin City, asked the court to sack and indict the Chairmen of the two bodies for claimed mishandle of power and deliberate breach of the laws on the implementation of government character standards, saying that they were marginalised and victimized and that the defendants have displaced outright disregard for responsibility and rule of law by their act.

The offended party in the suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/764/16, portrayed that they applied for employments in these two government parastatals yet were instructed by the authorities of the boards that they should look out for advertisements on the vacant positions and that it is simply after the advert is out that individuals can now apply for the occupation.

The suit said therefore that "between April and June 2016, the 3rd and 4th defendants with active collaboration of the 1st and 2nd defendants, illegally or in a manner intended to undercut the laid down procedures for recruitment into vacancies in the 3rd defendants, recruited and inducted 370 persons as employees of the 3rd defendant.

"The secret and illegal recruitment only came to light when several online and social media sources published the information about the recruitment," they alleged.

The plaintiffs disclosed that they later confirmed the secret recruitment through a letter from the FCC which was clear that "the defendants failed to follow the processes stipulated in their laws as to how recruitments are made which includes advertising the vacancies to enable qualified applicants apply for the positions.

According Irikefe and Sekegor, "By this conduct, they have deprived the Plaintiffs of a a fair opportunity at recruitment into the service, destroyed the plaintiffs' root of trust in the federal government recruitment process, marginalised and discriminated against the plaintiffs of a fair opportunity at recruitment and it is in the interest of justice to grant the reliefs in this application."

The matter was fixed for November 11, 2016 for hearing.
