NEPC Boss allegedly forges Letter from SGF’s Office



NEPC Boss allegedly forges Letter from SGF's Office - BellaNaija

NEPC Boss Olusegun Awolowo

Members of the House of Representatives on Thursday accused the Executive Director of the Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Olusegun Awolowo, of forging a letter from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF).

According to Daily Trust, Awolowo had forged the letter to sack some members of the staff of the NEPC.

The House had in 2016 asked that Awolowo not carry out any disciplinary action against members of his staff who had petitioned the Green Chamber over a promotion scandal in the agency.

Olusegun Awolowo had last year been accused of nepotism by some members of the NEPC staff, who petitioned the House, saying he was guilty of a biased promotion of staff from his ethnic group.

The House said it had found that Awolowo forged a letter, claiming it to be from the SGF’s office, which gave him directive to investigate the affected staff and sanction them.

The House decided to form an ad hoc committee to further investigate the matter, and report back in 2 weeks.

    Nepotism has killed patriotism in Nigeria!
    Was he appointed as ED, NEPC on qualification/competency or on the grounds of his grandfather, Obafemi Awolowo’s role in Nigeria?

    He should have been relieved of this job in 2015. Alas, the Vice Presidency happened and his very close cousin (almost like a sister) is Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo. Now, he thinks he can do and undo.

    But the northerners are very good at nepotism in the federal civil service. Go to most federal parastatals in Abuja you hardly see any southerners. Their all filled with northerners and most of them are not even qualified self. Na turn by turn. If only the south south and south east people at the top can have mind and engage in nepotism when given such opportunities to head these parastatals.

    I really doubt the integrity of this development. Some northerners/people are aggrieved and want that position. Not for the good of the country, very very selfish. Find out they are not even qualified and Am sure its not because of the . Who hold federal positions pass, even the president is nepotic.

    This is the handiwork of some aggrieved Notherners who have dominated that parastatal for years without moving it forward or adding any value. The backdrop of this whole debacle stemmed from the DG insisting on having the mandatory exams and assessments necessary for promotions to take place in NEPC. Some of the old hands resisted this knowing that they could never pass the assessment and started a campaign of calumny against the D.G. If indeed it is true that he has been nepotic, Please ask them to name JUST ONE SINGLE INDIVIDUAL the D.G has employed either from his family, state or even Region.
