Buhari’s Integrity At Stake? As Another Powerful Cabinet Member’s Daughter Gets Juicy Post In Shady Employment Scheme

In 2017, there was a massive outrage from Nigerians when it was confirmed through various sources that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) recruited dozens of family members of top government officials.

Nigerians got more furious when it was learnt that the CBN hired these people without advertising the positions using any media, in which an official of the apex bank confirmed that it got a waiver from the Federal Character‎ Commission to its effect.

A new report has just revealed that another event similar to that of 2017 has just occurred within Buhari’s administration for the umpteenth time but this is more serious as it involves one of the president’s top ally.

TheScoop confirmed yesterday that Ms. Aisha Abba-Kyari, the daughter of Abba Kyari, the President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, has been appointed as an Assistant Vice President at the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) under secretive and controversial circumstances

Sources within the organisation who spoke on condition of anonymity to TheScoop stated that Ms. Abba-Kyari’s appointment violates set procedure at the NSIA which is the legally constituted agency that manages Nigeria’s excess crude oil revenues.

Also, the position where she was hired for was not publicly advertised, contrary to the expectations for such a position.

An insider in the organisation was quoted saying: “She clearly does not meet the criteria for the role.”

It was gathered that Abba-Kyari has just about five years working experience at the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) where she worked up until February 2019 when she got the NSIA role.

She has been appointed Assistant Vice President (AVP) Level 3, which is the highest level in the organization and the average working experience in that level is 10 years.

The Scoop said “Insiders at the NSIA were infuriated by the appointment. A few of the high level persons privy to the recruitment initially refused to interview Ms. Abba-Kyari.

“One of such persons include an Executive Director, Stella Ojekwe-Onyejeli who vehemently rejected the suggestion, describing it as “ridiculous” and citing the underwhelming credentials of Ms. Abba-Kyari.

“The ED was however arm twisted into playing along as the pending confirmation of her appointment to become a second term ED, became an instrument of blackmail and her appointment was eventually confirmed sometime in March 2019 after she acquiesced.

“Halima Buba, a board member at the NSIA who was also invited to observe the process, refused to take part.”

Meanwhile, Ms. Abba-Kyari will receive an annual package of of about 32 million Naira and a brand new official car has also been assigned to her which is quite unusual because most of the other appointees only get their vehicles after six months into their job.
