Reacting to allegations that Ms Aisha Abba-Kyari who is the daughter of the Chief of Staff to the President ,Abba Kyari was given appointment without following due process, the Managing Director, Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority NSIA, Mr Uche Orji, has described the claims as false.
He said that the recruitment went through a transparent process, adding that the position was advertised in the media mid last year.
Coalition Against Corruption and Bad Governance, had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to order an investigation into the appointment of Ms Abba Kyari as an Assistant Vice President at the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority.
The organisation also requested “a series of lawful civil actions in a matter of days to compel the administration to order a comprehensive investigation of this employment scam.”
The Chairman of CACOBAG, Alhaji Toyin Raheem, in a statement on Saturday, described the appointment as controversial “because it violates set procedure at the NSIA, which is the legally constituted agency that manages Nigeria’s excess crude oil revenues.”
