The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has suspended the director-general of the National Information Technology Development Agency, NITDA, Peter Jack, for “misconduct unbecoming of a public officer of his cadre”.

Mr. Jack’s suspension, which takes effect from January 20, 2016, was contained in a statement by the Special Assistant on Media to Mr. Shittu, Victor Oluwadamilare, on Wednesday.

“The indefinite suspension became imperative on the strength of deluge of petitions regarding several alleged wrong-doings in NITDA and subsequent preliminary findings of an investigative committee set up by the Ministry,” the statement said.

According to the statement, some of the infractions identified by the investigative committee made up of three senior officials of the ministry, included illegal recruitment of additional staff totalling 245 within a spate of seven months.

“As at 29th May, 2015, NITDA only had a staff complement of 74.”

“But from May, 2015 to 31st December, 2015, additional 245 staff were employed in questionable circumstances, despite clear instruction from the ministry directing suspension of employment in the agency,” quoting from the committee’s report, the statement said.

The committee also said allegations of financial misdemeanour against Mr. Jack would require a more detailed professional auditing of NITDA’s finances.

Meanwhile, Vincent Olatunji has been named acting DG NITDA.

Mr. Olatunji, until this appointment, was the director of Corporate Strategy and Research in the agency.

    Mr Peter Jack the former Director General of NITDA. Sacked by the Yoruba traitors–

    • Omomeji

      Yorubas are worse than traitors. During the Buhari’s last evil regime in 1983-85, the Yoruba media used to refer to the regime as BUHARI-IDIAGBON regime. And when they were challenged on why they refer to the regime with such novel compound name, the replied that Idiagbo(the then VP) was actually the brains and might behind the regime and that Buhari was a mere weakling with no guts especially as he looked very frail and sickly in those army uniform of his. But 30 yrs later, the same Yoruba media, including Punch which would have forgotten about several Editorials and news reports it published to the contrary, began all praises for Buhari for President because according to them, he was the one in charge in 1984. Why? Because they were gripped with fear after Boko haram killed 22 traders at Bodija martket in Ibadan which neither PT, Punch nor Sahara reporters published. So my brother, for the Yorubsa it is more of cowardice that being a traitor except that being a traitor is a symthom of cowardice.

      • PolyGon2013

        Yorubas don’t play boldness for foolhardy. When the chips come down, we do the needful. So, go to he’ll boy.

      • Kuku

        This Yoruba tribe must be a great tribe. No wonder they produce the first Nobel prize winner in Africa and the only one so far in Nigeria. Hope your own tribe will catch up in the next one thousand years. But of course is not possible because I don’t see that great tribe waiting for your people to catch up. Sorry about that.

        • Onoriode

          Is it that useless Soyinka who dropped out from PhD programme you are referring to? Come on! Dont be soopid. Malala Yousuf of pakistan is a Nobel Laureate at 18yrs of age. Shameless Soyinka who eats his vomit every now and then is a disgrace to humanity. What has he contributed to your life and humanity? That he supports corrupt governments who employ his children as special advisers here and there while he eats his vomits to protect the jobs of his children? Are you unaware that Soyinka’s daughter Remi Soyinka was a presidential adviser to the evil regime of Obasanjo who kille over 26 Nigerians in politically motivated assassinations 8 yrs ? Or are you unaware that Soyinka’s son was a commissioner of Health in the Ogun state government that personified corruption through Gbenga Daniels. But the old man will come to speak rubbish English and primitive eddorts like you with colonised thoughts will dare to exalt such a nuisance. Yes a nuisance is someone who calls Buhari an evil repressive fellow who has no respect for fellow men BUT padlocks his mouth and supports the same man just because he is blinded by hate and ethnic bias for a fisherman from the Niger Delta or maybe fear from the threats of Buhari. Is that the characteristics of a great man? Sorry.

          • Kuku

            I’m sure your father and his generation unborn can never achieve or smell a little of what prof wole soyinka has achieved in life.

      You can list every qualification this man ever obtained unfortunately his actions are not compatible with anyone with some sense in his/her head. This is a blackman’s syndrome where once you are given an office you think it is ok to do just about anything. It does not work like that. We are only good at abusing power that is it.

    • Kuku

      You’re not making sense at all. So his atrocities should be overlooked because of questionable qualifications? And he should continue as emperor because is from Ijaw nation. Have you ever heard Yorubas or Hausas defending any of their own that are being prosecuted for any atrocities? Are you suffering from inferiority complex? Grow up please.

  • tundemash

    Because the employment was between June and Dec 2015 Premium Times wrote this report and did not make any reference to the massive corruption going on in the Buhari’s regime. See how crooked the Editors of premumu Times are? Completely jaundiced. If the fraus had been during Dr Jonathan’s presidency would it have been ossible to write this report without placing Jonathan’s name somewhere in the title f the report? But the North & West must realize that the days of their control of the resources of the South & East are over. Propaganda or no propaganda, we must redefine the geographical space called Nigeria in natural terms. My Grand father was not born a Nigeria. This is how close we are from our past peaceful and prosperous countries devoid of terrorism and nepotism before 1914. There is no basis for an Urhobo man to be in the same country with someone from Sokoto. None whatsoever.

  • Go Buhari go

    The budget sees a huge spend on capital expenses, this is positive and a reflator of the economy if properly done.
    Structurally the budget is a budget of debt with a full N1.36t to be spent on debt service, the entire non-oil revenues will be spent on debt service alone. we are borrowing almost N420b to pay salaries.
    However, salaries must be paid, the armed forces, police and teachers must be paid, in fact some may argue that government spending is a necessary stimulus on the face of a slow economy, I concede that point, but in Gods green heaven why is Nigeria spending N795m ie $3m to update a website for the Ministry of Solid Minerals?!

    How can this be happening in 2016? In a progressive budget? In a climate of austerity? N795m?
    Who approved this proposal? did Dr Kayode Fayemi approve this expenditure? Did Udo Udo Udoma and Kemi Adeosun see this? Was this vetted by the Presidents team? Is President Buhari aware his budget contains a provision of N795m to update a website? What part of zero budget is this?
    The 2016 budget proposal is simply filled with other astonishing allocations, for example an amount totally N535m is to connect cables to the State House, Guest, Gate and Generator House…. N535m!
    One of the main trusts of the administration is anti-corruption, the EFFC was given N11b to fight corruption, impressive, but out of this N11b, only N111m is for Legal Services that 1%, yes 1%. The EFCC will spend more on fuel and lubricants, than legal services. Is this the zero budget we have been hearing of? is there another to come?
    Let me highlight the ministry with the highest capital vote, the massive Ministry of Housing, Power and Works. Understandably this is a merger of 3 larger ministries but I mean, some things just stand out, eg the “Generation of 10mw from Katsina wind farm” is duplicated, the “Generation of 700ma from Zungeru Hydropower project is duplicated 6 times! ironically “Sustenance of Effective Budgeting Systems is duplicated 3 times!
    In the same Min of Works, Housing & Power budget you also see expenses that baffle, the ministry is proposing N531m to attend meetings on housing and development? Do we also really need to spend N919m on Research and Development on housing matters?

    The 2016 budget as proposed does not reflect the body language of the President nor the economic realities of $30 crude oil price. We are proposing to spend as if we just won the Powerball lottery., we had these sort of questionable budgets in the past, and this administration has preached change and a practical implementation of a zero based budget, this budget reflects neither of these.

    There is still the opportunity for this budget to be reviewed during the national assembly appropriation process, but I am not holding my breath. On a final note, we can do better, much better.

  • Go Buhari go

    Budget 2016: Figures Duplicated, Bogus Expenses Accounts To N1.4trn (23%).

    **Zungeru Hydropower project (built by GEJ, 95% completed) is duplicated 6 times! (budgeted 6 times. 5 to enter a private pocket or two).

    1] The huge amounts spent may reflate the economy (businesses and individuals will profit. Good!!)

    2] N420 billion borrowed to pay salaries. (salaries MUST be paid) Good!!!

    3] N795m ie $3m to update a website for the Ministry of Solid Minerals? (almost a billion for website for a ministry??? UPDATING? God punish somebody!!!)

    4] N535m is to connect cables to the State House, Guest, Gate and Generator House…. N535m! (God please leave this punishment to Ayelala. We do not need Jesus begging you on this one).

    5] EFCC 11 Billion. only ONE PERCENT is for legal fees and related to court cases. The EFCC will spend more on fuel and lubricants, than legal services. (lawyers done cheap like this or it is just a depiction of the value to be placed on the legal system? If 11 billion is to catch thieves, how much did the thief steal? This is separate from police and DSS funds. Considering that all the ACTUAL CHARGES brought in court against Dasuki et al is less that 11 billion naira, is the EFCC not over-budgeted for? Is there a guarantee they can bring in more than these funds from loot recovery? Again, moneys not budgeted for legalities, but for fuel and generator and diesel and such-like. So power wont improve this year?)

    6] “Generation of 10mw from Katsina wind farm” is duplicated. (budgeted for twice).

    7] “Generation of 700ma from Zungeru Hydropower project (built to near completion by GEJ) is duplicated 6 times! (Money towards it budgeted 6 times. 5 to enter a private pocket or two)

    8] “Sustenance of Effective Budgeting Systems’ is duplicated 3 times! (What does this even mean?)

    9] N531m to attend meetings on housing and development? (what meetings again my GOD!!! This is a matter for Ogun to show his power of destruction of Nigeria’s enemies).

    10] Do we also really need to spend N919m on Research and Development on housing matters? (1 billion to research how to build houses in times of austerity abi? Are they going to build a university of housing?)
    Oh Olokun, where is your water to carry all these thieves away like Noah’s flood?

    Here is the erudite Kalu Aja as he takes it from here.
    “Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.”
    The quote above was by Vice President Joe Biden, its succinct. If I see what you spend money on, I see what you value.
    It has been difficult to do a proper analysis of the 2016 budget because the breakdown was unavailable, however the budget breakdown has been released, and it’s a very disappointing, (I am being polite).

    A ministerial nominee, Adebayo Shittu, who was screened by the Senate on Tuesday declined to publicly comment on the extremist Boko Haram sect, saying he feared for his safety.

    Boko Haram is currently ravaging North-East Nigeria, killing, bombing innocent citizens.

    Mr. Shittu, responding to a question pertaining the activities of sect, said he could not publicly comment on the sect, expressing fear over his safety.

    “I cannot publicly comment on Boko Haram; I still have family to care of,” he said

    He noted that many northern leaders were “unfairly” criticised for not speaking out against the sect.

    Mr. Shittu explained that Boko Haram had killed anybody who spoke out against the sect.

    “So anybody that still wants to live will not condemn that faceless group publicly.”

    “The reality is
    that the All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government has destroyed the
    economy within eight months in power and rather than look for solutions to the
    problems facing Nigeria, Lai Mohammed and his cohorts are branding bogus
    figures about stolen money just to cover up their lack of solution to the
    country’s economic problems. They are turning governance to Nollywood, such
    that when one movie is about to end, they release another one. As it appears
    that the $2.1 billion arms deal movie is getting to an end, Lai Mohammed
    introduced another movie titled N1.34 trillion loot.

    Unfortunately for them this time around,
    Nigerians have become tired of watching the Federal
    Government movies, they now want reality. Nigerians are now aware of the scam
    in the $2.1 billion arms deal movie having seen that the amount those already
    charged to court were charged with is not more than N10 billion and $2.1
    billion is over N600 billion. Therefore, Lai Mohammed must either tell
    Nigerians details of the 15 former governors and 55 people that he claimed
    stole N1.34 trillion, where the stolen money is kept and bring back the money
    or apologise to Nigerians for lying.”

    Will this mean that the two contractors handling the project, Julius Berger Plc and Reynolds Construction Company (Nigeria) Limited will reduce the quality of Materials they will be using on the road?

    Payments to contractors was stopped immediately President Buhari assumed office and the contractors in turn stopped work on the project and laid off thousands of workers to save cost.

    President Buhari should please remove N1billion from his feeding cost and add it to the completion cost of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to ensure that the quality of the road is not compromised.

        @wahala——-Your fake satanic semi regional Ibo thoughts, which u often hide under the name of the Yorubas to post comments, would soon have no place in the new Nigeria that we intend to build after sacking Buhari. Then the Yorubas who now think they and only they own Nigeria with the aid of their Fulani masters from Sokoto will be sent back to Togo where they hail from. Buhari is the most corrupt human in the entire African continent not to talk of Nigeria-99.9 percent of the thieves we have in Nigeria, are the Yorubas and Fulanis. Look at APC how many position were actually allocated to the South south and the South East in that Islamic party? Every prediction about the Apes in APC, being members of an Islamic organisation, have been proven beyond all reasonable doubt to be correct. That APC is working hand in hand, with the murderers in Boko Haram, is nothing but the truth. U sack a man simply because he hired 245 staffers? If the agency does not have the resources–to pay their wages u think they would be hired? The Minister is a Yoruba thief. What he intends to do, is to steal the money meant for their salaries period. Is this not the government that promised to hire over one million workers every month? Now sacking those who have been employed simply because there is a fake embargo-on employment?–How long have the minster been on his job to know, there was an embargo on employment by Buhari–?—Yet the Ministry of foreign affairs is hiring in Abuja. Let us take a census of the ethnic groups he hired—-Are they from his Rivers state alone? The minister would have loved to fill all the opening with Yorubas–from the south West——-If there were no resources to pay the wages of the workers, he would not have hired them. The Yorubas sacked him because he is an Ijaw man like Jonathan period. He should go to court and have this mumu Yoruba Jihadist thief fired–

    A budget that moves domestic spending in Aso Villa from N580m to N1.7bn cannot be a budget of change’ – Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe-

    He should now prepare himself to be called to appear before Almighty Buhari and Holy Imam Tinubu-then unto the Gulag of Efcc–as a beneficiary of the 10b dasuki stole from the CBN-The real thieves in 9ja are these Apes in APC-Yorubas who betrayed Nigeria–the ethnic bigots from the south west who have no place in Nigeria are the ones we should work to distance ourselves from. They are a danger to the Nigerian society.

  • 50 Naira Tax by tiv buhari

    Just look around you oooh Yee Nigerians! Watch as Nigeria’s collective IQ drop thanks to Buhari and APC level of madness.

    300 million transactions daily. N50 X 300 million = N15 billion daily for the pocket of Buhari and Tinubu.

    Remita and TSA, everyday is gonna be Christmas for una side. The ordinary Nigerian on the street will be definitely milked to death just to oil Muhammadu Buhari’s engine. APC is destroying the banking Industry in Nigeria-and it is time to speak out against it.

    Tasking the people to pay for their bogus 2016 budgetary plan of Madness. Its is Unbelievable! Yet, nobody is speaking out! The culture of saving and doing transactions with the banks in Nigeria is about to destroyed. One of the dividends of 16 years of democracy in Nigeria is about to destabilized by APC led government of Buhari.

    Who will talk among the Yorubas? Who would speak up and against this unilateral decision by the hegemonic Northern oligarchs working in consonance with the Yoruba thieves from the South West

    • Akiika

      “300 million transactions daily?
      What is the population of Nigeria? How many Nigerians have bank accounts? Do you do daily transaction on your account? At least, think before you wail. Stop throwing figures that doesn’t add up, Mr Wailington!

    • 9JA IS DYING DEAD UNDER BUHARI

      Buhari Has Turned Governance into Nollywood; When one movie Ends He introduces Another. – Governor Fayose.

      “They are turning governance to Nollywood, such that when one movie is about to end, they release another one. As it appears that the $2.1 billion arms deal movie is getting to an end, Lai Mohammed introduced another movie titled N1.34 trillion loot.

      “Unfortunately for them this time around, Nigerians have become tired of watching the Federal Government movies, they now want reality. Nigerians are now aware of the scam in the $2.1 billion arms deal movie having seen that the amount those already charged to court were charged with is not more than N10 billion and $2.1 billion is over N600 billion.

      “Therefore, Lai Mohammed must either tell Nigerians details of the 15 former governors and 55 people that he claimed stole N1.34 trillion, where the stolen money is kept and bring back the money or apologize to Nigerians for lying.
