Edugate CISLAC opposes Enitan’s supposition of the Humanitarian Ministry To President Because Of This
Mr. President ABUJA The Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre, or CISLAC, launched a crusade against Permanent Secretary Abel Enitan’s leadership of the Ministry over the weekend, as part of an ongoing inquiry into the purported N585.2 million fraud at the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation.
In a statement made available to Vanguard, the Administrative Director of CISLAC, Auwal Rafsanjani, stated that Enitan’s appointment to take over the Ministry’s operations after President Bola Tinubu suspended Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Beta Edu, is indecorous because he should have been placed on suspense and looked into further because it’s contended that the N585.2 million fraud passed right under his watch as Permanent Secretary.
Ministers consider the proffers made by public workers under the direction of the Permanent Secretary, according to Rafsanjani, who also serves as the Head of translucency International in Nigeria. ” The appointment of Abel Olumuyiwa Enitan as Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation to run the Ministry was entered with great disappointment by translucency International and the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre( CISLAC) in Nigeria,” he stated. ” It’s unhappy to allow Mr. Enitan,
The Ministry’s account officer involved in this contestation, to serve as the Ministry’s leader.” He also advised that the appointment of Enitan to manage the Ministry’s operations would undermine Nigerians’ confidence in the allegations, raising the possibility that the EFCC’s ongoing examinations may be compromised. As a result, he indicted the government of” planning a swash of the pinch and abuse of public trust.” He emphasized,” The Permanent Secretary is the head of account who should be penalized and suspended along with the Minister according to our current regulations and laws.”
“ The ministers work on suggestions of civil retainers led by the Permanent Secretary. It isn’t supported by any substantiation that the Permanent wasn’t involved in the issues under disquisition. The Permanent Secretary should be the focus of inquiries because, in any event, she didn’t protest what passed. ” The fact that elderly officers, including the Permanent Secretary, who are involved in the Ministry’s blessing and permission of the fiscal and procurement processes, haven’t yet been suspended, greatly worries us.” or put through a thorough disquisition until their innocence is established.
Rather, they’ve been elevated to high- position places where the ongoing disquisition may be compromised or hindered. The legality and respect that the current administration has would really be damaged by Enitan’s appointment to lead the Ministry.
” We appeal with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to incontinently drop his appointment of the Permanent Secretary of State until the disquisition and examination of the Ministry byanti-corruption agencies is finished. Secretary of the Ministry and other individualities who should also be under serious disquisition to enthrall such a sensitive position.”
” The President should demonstrate Nigeria’s preparedness for good administration by appointing integrity- driven individualities, while media, civil society, and citizens should remain watchful against arbitrary or isolated movables .
