ICPC begins probe of federal civil service recruitment


Following the disengagement of 247 workers who were employed between 2013 and 2015 by the Federal Civil Service Commission, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission has launched an inquiry into the alleged malpractices in recruitment into the FCSC involving its chairman, Joan Ayo and some government officials.

Reports have it that the aggrieved workers had petitioned the ICPC over the FCSC chairman and the ICPC chairman, Ekpo Nta, confirmed that the matter is being looked into.

The workers claimed that Ayo wants to sack them in order to cover up alleged fraud and irregularities in past recruitments.

They maintained that their appointments followed due process, as their letters of appointment were duly verified and authenticated by the Commission before being posted to several ministries, agencies and parastatals.
