REVEALED: Positions Allocated To Relatives Of President Buhari’s Top Officials And Associates In Illegal CBN Employment

SaharaReporters has identified the offices and titles allocated to 91 of the persons tied to influential and highly placed Nigerians recently offered juicy appointments by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in a secretive and illegal high-stakes hiring process aimed at consolidating favour with the presidency.

The beneficiaries of the CBN’s employment gerrymandering include daughters of such figures as former Vice President Abubakar Atiku; Mamman Daura, one of the closest members of the president’s inner circle; former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’aba; Inspector General of Police (IGP) Solomon Arase; as well as sons of Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and of Abdurahman Danbazzau, the Minister of Internal Affairs; along with a niece of President Muhammadu Buhari and at least 86 others.

The scandalous recruitment was first uncovered by SaharaReporters two weeks ago, but in the past few days, we obtained exclusive identification of the ranks assigned to each of the beneficiaries.

The leaking of the irregular hires by the CBN caused significant embarrassment for the government and the bank.  The CBN’s Director of Human Resources, Chizoba Mojekwu, was redeployed to a new position as the bank’s Director of Capacity Development and IT after CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, accused her of being behind the leaking of the list.

A top official of the bank told our correspondent that Mr. Emefiele had arranged the hiring of relatives of top party leaders and powerful government officials as a strategy for ingratiating himself with the presidency and saving his job.

Even though the list earlier released by SaharaReporters had 91 names, our sources at the CBN disclosed that Mr. Emiefiele started the strategy of using job offers to woo top government officials after Mr. Buhari came into power on May 29, 2015. One source revealed that in September 2015, Mr. Emefiele hired Claire Arase, a daughter of IGP Arase.

Since concluding the hiring of the 91 persons that were outed by this medium, sources at the CBN have further disclosed that three persons related to Senate Majority Leader Ali Ndume benefitted from the largesse, as the bank hired his daughter, his son as well as an in-law.

Our sources disclosed that each Senator was reportedly given an employment slot, meaning that the Upper House alone could have put in 100 persons in the implementation of Mr. Emefiele’s political job multiplication strategy.

While some of them nominated their wards, however, we learned that others sold their slots for huge amounts of money.

SaharaReporters learnt that the CBN often went to great lengths, including tweaking the names of the beneficiaries, to hide the actual identities of the beneficiaries of politically motivated recruitment, such as using the beneficiary’s first name and his/her father’s middle name.

In that schema, for instance, the bank disguised Maryam Atiku as “Maryam Abubakar,” while the son of Dambazau became “Nagodi Abdulrahman.”  In other instances, the bank used the maiden names of the hired persons instead of their married names, thus permitting Ali Ndume’s daughter access to her fat pay cheque as “Mariam Mohammed Ndume.”  It is unclear how their academic and professional certificates, if any, matched these names in the bank’s human resources records.

The recruitments are illegal because the CBN failed to advertise the vacancies as prescribed by law to allow all qualified Nigerians to apply for the jobs. In addition, the bank’s “political” recruitments did not follow principle of federal character set out for employment by government agencies and other public institutions.

“Jobs were just handed to the children of ministers in the current administration,” one bank official stated.

To add insult to injury, many of the new hires were asked to pick their department of choice once their irregular employment was concluded, the source said.

The job placement ranking obtained by SaharaReporters sees some of the illegally hired persons being given higher rankings than others.  This suggests that such new employees actually had years of experience in relevant fields before their employment by the CBN, but our sources at the bank affirmed that the ranks were given as gifts with a nod and a wink to some of them with no consideration for extant rules whatsoever.

Why several civil organizations have called upon Mr. Emefiele to resign his appointment on account of the scandal, neither he nor the government has responded officially.
