Minister for Interior Abba Moro accepts blame for NIS tragedy

The Minister of Interior, Abba Moro yesterday accepted blame for the poorly conducted immigration recruitment exercise that led to the death of 16 youths on March 15th. Mr Moro appeared before the Senate Committee on Interior Matters Panel instituted by the senate to investigate circumstances that led to the ill-fated exercise. While expressing his sympathy to those that died, Moro said as with most administrative exercises, the end result cannot be determined...
"Mr chairman and distinguished senators, we are deeply grieved and saddened by the way events turned out. We express our sincere regrets once again. However, permit me to state that our patriotic desire was the pursuit of a more honest, a more transparent, a more cost effective, a more efficient and equitable platform. We sincerely made appropriate and adequate preparations for a hitch -free exercise, but as most things in administrative and human conditions, the yield curve of expected outcome is mostly undefined .My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost their dear loved ones. I sincerely sympathize with those injured. I share in their grief. I share in their pains." Continue...
"May I, at this juncture, assure you, distinguished senators and Nigerians, of my respect for  the sanctity of human life. The loss of these young Nigerians, who are needed as a critical human resource factor for nation building is most regrettable. As the Minister of Interior, under whose purview this unfortunate exercise took place, I cannot abdicate my responsibility. The buck stops here.”
Also at the panel yesterday, the Comptroller-General of the NIS, Mr.  David Parradang told the committee members that he was sidelined by the Minister throughout the recruitment exercise and that he got wind of the exercise through a  newspaper advertorial. He said only N45million was released to the NIS for provision of test materials as against the the N201million released to the consulting firm, Drexel Technical Nigeria Limited. He said this caused a lot of logistic problems on the day of the test.

Some of the Commanders of the NIS who headed the test in some other states said asides the serious logistic problems, influx of those who were not supposed to write the exam was also responsible for the stampede experienced on that day..

Accepting blame cannot replace d lost lives. I advice youths(like I ain't 1, lol) to start up smfin on their own instead of waiting for or luking up 2 govt or private sects for employment. Discover dt wch u are passionate abt nd take a step. U nevr knw...

SUPERVISOR said...

ITS NOT ENOUGH, HE SHOULD ALSO HONOURABLY RESIGN.

Anonymous said...

There's obviously more than meet the eyes in this case. Paradang is stylishly raising a case of fraud in this recruitment exercise and the matter should not end because the minister apologized. The minister and drexel limited should be investigated and made to give account of the total expenditure on this disastrous exercise. And minister, do the right thing.... RESIGN!!!.... Show some integrity

The next honourable thing to do after accepting blame is to tender your resignation.

FunmiD said...

Dear Mr Moro,
You fool no one but urself,you only feel sorry because you might lose your job. we all know you feel no remorse and if given the opportunity you will do worse so we re STILL CALLING FOR YOUR SACK.
Your fake remorse comes about two weeks too late...RESIGN NOW.

Oya let him resign as they do in civilised world.

Mr Moro handled this exercise as a one man biz. This is high hardedness. Pls turn in your resignation and face EFCC on corruption.

Baby Oku in the house said...

He should do the honorable thing but refunding the money the job seekers paid and resigning as a minister. His apologies are noted but it can never bring back the dead nor heal the wounds. Let his conscience judge him and he should tell us what he would have done had it been his son or daughter that died in the exercise.

Unfortunately, as much as this seems like the right thing to do, it cannot restore life to the dead. That's why they say "prevention is better than cure"

Only wish Nigeria truly embraces technology in its true sense. Why can't job seekers apply for such a test (or even write it) online. Such tragedy would have been averted in the first place.

I don't know why this Man is still a minister uptill now. He should be sacked, charged to court for Fraud and Man-slaughter and sent to Jail. Sacking him alone is more or less telling his kind to continue in their Evil deeds; he should be made to "offload" the Billions he made from innocent Job seeking youths and then sent to Jail!
