Any institutions have its system, processes and procedures that need to be followed, but this seems not to be case at the Ministry Lands. It can be recalled that, few months ago, some vacancies were announced requesting for suitable applicants who meets the benchmarks to serve in the capacity of the Planning Director. People from the same department with the requisite academic qualifications and experience applied for the said position the were shortlisted and interviewed. But, it is evident that some unscrupulous individuals who are seeking to protect their own interests have manipulated the system already in favor of someone who might be competent to do the job.
It is now clear that due processes are not followed at some government departments since they have chosen to bring somebody who has little or no knowledge to be the Country Planning Director. It’s sad to see such thing is still happening in our country especially under the watch of this current dispensation.
Therefore, we all calling on those authorities concerned to look into this matter with the urgency it deserves. Such office needs somebody has a wealth of experience and academic qualifications.
It must be known that the appointment of the current Country Planning Director is illegal. He was never shortlisted, talkless of being interviewed but yet he has been given an appointment letter.
We want to respectfully call on the ACC to diligently look into this matter as it has the propensity to undermine the leadership of the New Direction Agenda.
We are also calling on lands committee in parliament to careful look into this matter.
He who deserves or rather merit it should get it.
