President Muhammadu Buhari has again warned Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to disregard any purported request from government officials aimed at conferring undue advantage on anyone seeking jobs or other favours.
The President’s warning was contained in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
The statement was signed by Mr Segun Adeyemi, Special Assistant to the President (Media) Office of the Minister of Information and Culture.
The minister said that the president’s directive was sequel to persistent reports of fraudsters using the business cards and purported referral letters from presidential aides and other government officials to solicit employment, contract and other favours.
Mohammed said that the President equally warned political appointees and other government officials against using their positions to bestow undue advantage on anyone seeking government jobs and other favours.
