Bauchi Assembly rejects outcome of NSCDC recruitment process
Bauchi State House of Assembly has resolved to reject the outcome of the recent recruitment process into the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) as it relates to the state, declaring that the exercise was a scam.
The resolution of the House followed the submission of the report of the Joint Committee on Security and Public Service on the recruitment exercise by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps which was laid by Sabo Bako Sade representing Sade Constituency.
According to the report, the Committee found out that after the screening exercise for the recruitment, the office of the Head of Civil Service of the State communicated to the Assembly that there was a scam during the exercise in which 7 out of 10 applicants whose names appeared on the list were discovered to be non-indigenes as reported by Jamilu Umaru Dahiru the member representing Bauchi central.
The Committee also recommended that the House should reject the outcome of the exercise and communicate same to the National Headquarters of NSCDC that the result of the exercise even if it is released with the 7 identified non-indigenes of the state will be regarded as null and void to the people of Bauchi State.
The Committee further recommended that Jamilu Umaru Dahiru should be commended for alerting the House on the scam which was confirmed to be true after a thorough investigation by the House as part of its oversight functions.
The House after thoroughly studying the report as presented by the Committee, adopted all the recommendations of the Committee and directed the Clerk of the House to do the needful immediately.
Also during the Thursday plenary, a report of the House Committee on Lands and Housing on a Bill for a Law to amend the Bauchi State Urban Planning Law was laid by the Chairman of the Committee Bakoji Aliyu Bobbo representing Chiroma Constituency.
The Committee explained that it invited critical stakeholders in land administration in the State and after deliberations, observed that the fundamental problem besetting physical planning in Bauchi State ranged from the sprawl of illegal layouts, overlapping of functions and lack of synergy with the Ministry of Lands and Survey.
Furthermore, according to the report, since the creation of Bauchi State in 1976, the BSUPDB was placed under the Governor’s office, transferred to the Ministry of Works and Transport therefore, cumbersome bureaucratic procedures and inter-ministerial transfer of schedule of duties formed the basis of some unsolved problems.
The Committee therefore, suggested that for effective service delivery and expedient practice, the BSUPDB can be better placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Lands and Survey as per provision of the Federal Act of Parliament.
The House adopted all the recommendations of the Committee while Deputy Majority Leader, Baballe Abubakar Dambam requested the House to allow the Bill for a Law to amend the Bauchi State Urban Planning Law and was seconded by the Minority Leader, Bakoji Aliyu Bobbo Chiroma Constituency.
After the Members voted in favour of the motion, the Speaker asked the Clerk of the House Barr Umar Yusuf Gital Esq to carry out the third reading after which the Bill was therefore passed into law as contained in a statement by Abdul Ahmad Burra, Spokesperson to the Speaker, Bauchi State House of Assembly.
