Recruitment by Nigeria’s MDAs now more transparent due to strict monitoring its officials….
The Federal Character Commission (FCC), says recruitment process by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), are now more transparent due to strict monitoring its officials.
David Fakeye, Director, Monitoring and Enforcement in the FCC, said this at a one-day sensitisation workshop for MDAs on Thursday in Abuja.
Mr. Fakeye said chief executive officers were now conscious of their obligations to strive for ethnic diversity during recruitment.
He said prospective applicants had become increasingly confident that they did not need to have relations or somebody in any MDAs before they were employed.
The director said the development of appropriate formulae, procedures and guidelines by the commission had become effective tools for redressing perceived imbalances which reduced the fears of marginalisation.
Mr. Fakeye said the principles of the commission made it mandatory for all government establishments to comply with the recruitment process and requirements.
He said this had made the recruitment by MDAs become transparent through strict adherence to laid down guidelines and procedures.
The director said every section or ethnic group did not need to resort to violence before their concerns were heard.
He said this was because an impartial and professional platform through which complaints of marginalisation would be addressed had been provided by the Commission. (NAN)
