Jonathan Queries Moro, Parradang Over Immigration's Recruitment Death

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday summoned the Minister of
Interior, Abba Moro and the Comptroller General of the Nigeria
Immigration Service (NIS), David Parradang to give explanation why the
over 19 job seekers had to die during NIS recruitment exercise at the

During the recruitment exercise in cities across the country, among
those who died include Abuja (eight), Port Harcourt (five), Minna
(three), and Benin (three). Many of the job seekers were also injured
during the exercise.

The deaths were said to have occurred due to stampede resulting from
poor crowd management at the centres.

The duo, who were in the Presidential Villa for over two hours
yesterday, were led to the President's office by the Chief of Staff to
President Goodluck Jonathan, General Jones Arogbofa.

They however declined comment on the issue when they were led out from
the President's office by Arogbofa at 2.24pm.

While the All Progressives Congress (APC) among other stakeholders
have condemned the recruitment method which led to the death of the
job seekers, others have called for the sack of Moro and Parradang
over the issue.

  1. Suspend them until ivestigation or forseic is conducted

  2. This is mere pretence , Jonathan is the architect of all these. He is an incapacitated leader , so what do you expect? He should understand that all the data about the rate of unemployment are false. Though, I sincerely believe he is aware of all these false data.
