CBN hires relatives of incumbent government officials.

– Leaked document shows that CBN hired relatives of top officials of the incumbent government
 – The bank masked the names of the beneficiaries 
– The full list of unlawfully hired people 

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has reportedly unlawfully hired a daughter of former vice president Atiku Abubakar, a nephew of President Muhammadu Buhari and many others relatives of top officials. 

The leaked document shows a list of at least 91 people tied to powerful or highly placed Nigerians, who were recently proposed appointments.


Sahara Reporters says that the CBN’s job generosity comprise a daughter of former Atiku, a son of Mamman Daura, a nephew of Buhari and one of the closest members of the president’s ‘kitchen cabinet’, a son of the Ibe Kachikwu, oil minister, a daughter of ex-speaker of the house of representatives, Ghali Na’aba, also daughter of the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, a since of the Minister of Internal Affairs, Abdurahman Danbazzau and at least 86 others. 

The leaking of this document has reportedly caused important embarrassment for the administration and the bank. The director of human resources, Chizoba Mojekwu, was reportedly redeployed as the bank’s director of capacity development and IT after CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, blamed her for being behind the leaking of the list. 

Meanwhile, a bank insider said that Emefiele had decided the hiring of relatives of top leaders of the ruling party and powerful government officials as a strategy for saving his job. 

It was learnt that the CBN governor had begun the practice of using job proposals to promote top government officials since Buhari was sworn in on May 29, 2015. 

Another source disclosed that in September last year Emefiele had hired Claire Arase, a daughter of Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase. 

Meanwhile, the CBN is trying to hide the names of beneficiaries. The bank used the first names and their father’s middle names to hide their real individualities. 

For example, the bank listed Maryam Atiku as “Maryam Abubakar,” the name of the son of Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, is written as “Nagode Abdulrahman.” In other examples, the bank used the first names of hired people instead of their married names. 

The employments are considered to be irregular because the CBN failed to promote the vacancies in order to allow opportunities to all qualified Nigerians to apply for the jobs. 

“Jobs were just handed to the children of ministers in the incumbent administration,” another top source in bank said.

After Buhari’s victory at the presidential poll last year, the wife of the president Aisha Buhari made a significant remark about her status saying that she will prefer to be called the wife of the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria than the First Lady of Nigeria. 

The Nigerian leader has taken a critical step towards cutting the cost of governance with the establishment of the Efficiency Unit which will vet all key expenditures of Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs.
