GEJ fulfills promise to families that lost sons & daughters in NIS recruitment exercise

Read the State House press statement below...
President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Friday in Abuja presented letters of employment into the Nigerian Immigration Service to members of the 15 families who lost sons and daughters during the Service’s recruitment exercise last year.
At a brief ceremony in the Presidential Villa, President Jonathan gave letters of employment to 33 members of the bereaved families. Employment had been offered to three members of each bereaved family, but some of the bereaved families are yet to present qualified members to take up the offer.
In his remarks at the occasion, the President said that he was deeply saddened by the death of their relatives in circumstances that were completely avoidable and unwarranted.

President Jonathan said that the Federal Government was fully committed to ensuring high standards for recruitment processes into the public service, and the provision of safety measures to avoid the recurrence of the March 15, 2014 incident which claimed many lives.

“Today is a sad day for all of us. First, let me convey our deepest condolences to the families who lost very young people during the recruitment exercise into the Nigeria Immigration Service. “It is quite regrettable and we promise that such a thing will never happen again,” President Jonathan said.

President Jonathan apologized for the delay in fulfilling the promise of employment to members of the bereaved families, explaining that employment into the public service must go through some processes.

Cheques for an undisclosed amount were also given to each of the bereaved families at the occasion. “The cheque is not for compensation. You cannot replace somebody with any amount of money,” the President said.

Speaking on behalf of the bereaved families, Yunusa Imam thanked President Jonathan for the cheques and letters of employment. “We thank you, Mr. President for the promises that you have kept. We are profoundly grateful,’’ Imam, a guardian of one of the victims, said.

Jonathan is busy playing politics with everything. He could not even give any reasonable response on why it is this much delayed.
But we know it is delayed just to score a cheap political point.

There are two kinds of people in Nigeria today, those who want CHANGE and those who want CONTINUITY. If you want change you are safe, if you want continuity there are two things involved, is either you reside in LAGOS or you are in PDP. If you are in Lagos you are safe, if you are in PDP there are two things
involved, is either you are Jonathan's family or you are naturally corrupt. If you are Jonathan's family you are safe because you’re going back to Otuoke but if you are naturally corrupt, there are two things involved, is either you leave this country before March 28 or you remain. If you leave this country you are save but if you remain, there is ONLY one thing involved, YOU ROT IN JAIL! Vote for Change Vote Buhari

Jonathan is a fraud, it is now when election wants to hold that he remembered their families, if he had created 1.8million jobs as he promised initially, this people might still be alive ....... #SaiBuhari #0809

Jonathan can only perform if everyday is election. Sadly, it's not. So if elected again, he forgets is work, claim he acts patiently and begin to rush things for the next election.
I'm not stupid to be fooled that way.

It reminds me of the tactics NEPA uses: there'd be no light throughout the month and they'd blame it on transformer, low gas and such, but when it's time to share bill and expect ur payment, (tadaaa) light becomes stable. Magic!
Sadly the cycle starts again after payment

What happened to the main guy that organised this madness of a recruitment, is he still in active service or awaiting panel of committee to decide his fate. 2 weeks to election and 1 year this happened, they've all decided to wake up from slumber. Ndi ojoo

Please someone should help me tell GEJ that We do not have electricity over two weeks and PHCN said no fault but no allocation of power because govt didn't supply. If this NEPA issue is the only achievement he can do for the country maybe I will change my mind to vote for him.

You should shut -up and hide your shameless face before I smack it for you. We should commend your president for killing innocent nigerians? Even if he gave them the offer less than a month after the incident, is it his responsibility? Did he do that with his father' s money? Fools like you should try put on a thinking cap.

This is too low for PDP!!!
This is not the way to solve this problem

1.first fire the minister or person in charge of the exercise
2. Return the N1000 to the people
3. That N5m you want to give the family use it to assist in creating employment for the people so this thing does not happen again.


And I don't even have a PHD...Maurer
