Nigeria Comptroller General Of Immigration, Rose Uzoma, Sacked

Mrs. Rose Uzoma
By SaharaReporters, New York

The Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Mrs. Rose Uzoma, has been retired from service.

Her retirement followed the recruitment scandal that rocked the Service in the last few weeks. The controversial recruitment, in which she was accused of favouring people from her region, had since been cancelled by the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro.

Saharareporters learnt today that a strong petition was forwarded to President Goodluck Jonathan from the supervising minister, part of the petition read :
"The most recent posting of Men and Officers of the Service in which due process was initially followed with all required parties involved, including the Minister of Internal Affairs Mr. Abba Moro has been reversed by the comptroller.

Three weeks after the resumptions/reporting to their new beats, the CG of Immigration unilaterally prepared an impromptu circular (without the knowledge of the Minister of Internal Affairs and other stakeholders) to remove some of the newly posted officers and replace them with her loyalists.
An example is the Festac Passport Office in Lagos where there was an open confrontation between the newly posted officer (on the actual posting) and another officer (from Mrs. Uzoma list) was created on Thursday 10th of January, 2013."

Today's "retirement" was saving grace, as Mrs. Uzoma was asked to resign which she did.

Moro had issued a statement saying the former NIS boss had been allowed to go on her terminal leave.

@'SACK OF COMPTROLLER GENERAL MRS ROSE UZOMA ' BY CLEM OKONKWO

Except my understanding of this matter is wrong, Mrs Uzoma has not been sacked. She has been retired just a few months before her terminal date in service.
You have posed a number of questions without considering the fact that an employer can dispense with the services of an employee for good reason or for bad reason or for no reason at all. All that the employer is required to do is to comply with the terms of the contract of employment. Even where the employer flouts such terms, the employee is only entitled to damages as specified in the contract. Where there is no such provision, the common law position of one month pay in lieu of notice will apply. An exception to this is employment with statutory flavour. Courts are reluctant to order that an employee be restored, for one cannot foist a servant on an unwilling master. Mrs Uzoma's case is one of challenging the authority of her minister which she was not equipped to do.

@ Efe Ejiro

Efe Ejiro I do not know where you represents but your name suggest you are from Urhobo tribe.If actually you are from Urhobo you should bury your head in shame.Urhobo is one of laziest tribe in Nigeria,who belives so much in polygamy.They do not want to work hard but They want to get rich quickly.Children abandoned at an infant age to feed for themselves.Kidnapping and armed robbery originated from Urhobo.Ibori is a typical example of a true Urhobo man.So shut up your smelling mouth there.

Why she was retired.

The minister, since assuming office, for example, has posted five persons from his home state,Benue, to take charge of commands as comptrollers in fragrant disregard of the federal character principle.
Of these, three are men from his Idoma tribe. These are CIS Ogbu Adadu, Seme Command; CISIdu Batholomew, Kwara State command and CIS Igoche Ogwuji Samuel in charge of Cross River State command.
The inequality and nepotism that Moro has bred is such that while Benue State has five officers heading commands, a state like Katsina has five qualified comptrollers but none of them heads any command. There are many examples like that. The minister’s memo to the president complaining of her insubordination, our sources said, was aimed at misinforming the President and covering up the fact that it is the minister who was trying to usurp her function.

@Rose UZOMA deserves what

The CBN chief sacked alot of easterners because Soludo did what Uzoma did and packed the CBN full of only igbos. THE IGBOS are very crude. They hire only igbos whenever they are fortunate to achieve positions of power. Ironsi did the same thing by promoting mostly igbo officers and giving igbo officers command posts post 66 coup. Nzeogwu and his co murderers did the same by sparing only igbo politicians and military officers from brutal murder. Keshi practically restricted his choice of players to igbo people. Pre 1966 list of scholarships from the ministry of education were given predominantly to igbo people because their minister and permanent secretary was igbo. They are a people blinded by tribalism, prone to boastfulness, with a habit of abusing their stay and overstaying their welcome, killing the leaders of their hosts and mocking their hosts afterwards. When retribution comes from their actions they plead victimization and jealousy because they are hard working people!

Why isn't anyone asking why

Why isn't anyone asking why the Hausas want all the forces based in the North. Why don't they let different departments of the armed and other forces spread to different regions across Nigeria? Army-North, Navy-South West and Airforce-South East Or better still all regions having branches of all aspects of the armed forces? Why don't they allow the relocation of institutions like the NDA, NMS to a more central location and allow recruitment to be across all tribes in the ratio 25:25:25:25 between Yorubas,Igbos,Hausas and other tribes? Why is it that they want to Islamise the North in a multi-cultural and multi-religious country? Why have they surpressed their revenue contributing industries yet want to live on that of the others'? Why are they the most corrupt people? Why isn't anyone standing up to the Hausas and asking them these? Yet when it comes to things like the PIB bill in the Senate that's when the Hausas come up with the phrase Nigeria is for all of us. Is it really?

@ Dele Awogbeoba

Ogbeni lo ka article yen, the figures in perspective are based on recruitment in the Immigration Service. Hausa people use this bojuboju tactic to deceive the generality of Yoruba people and you guys always fall for it. The Igbos know their antics and they are the major reason the Igbos seek secession. The same events that pushed Nigeria to civil war are reoccurring. First mass killings of the Ibos in the North (this time Boko Haram)next the propaganda about Igbos and positions. How come the Hausas have the highest population yet produce the least amount of educated people, but want all leadership positions in Nigeria. Check inside and outside Nigeria, you see Igbos, Yorubas and other tribes hustling in schools and businesss. People who should bring their experience and expertise back to change Nigeria yet the Hausas won't let that happen. There is a 50:1 Hausa to outsiders ratio in institutions like the NDA because they prefer force to being rational yet no one is talking about that.

Sack of Comproller General Mrs. Rose Uzoma

The case study is confusing but amounted to removal of a senior Officer. Terms of reference also suggested that where a course of procedural failure had occured relative to Master and Servant Contractual Relations, and such mistake caused the master to a loss. Was the servant under Contract Agreement given time to correct the same or summarily removed from office out of rage resulting to Wrongful Dismissal ? Was any ab initial warning issued upon which the servant refused to abide in terms of insubordination ? Was
sufficient Notice of Dismissal issued judging the age and period of service with employer upon which the employee has right for redress ? Whatever the cause, employee has right for Redress
for wrongful Dismissal and insufficient time.You can't treat a long term employee like shiite.Was she asked for Transfer or Demotion and she declined ? These are just few of the avenues than wrongful Dismissal.

The sack of Uzoma.

I support Officers in positions to help their people, though not with impunity and hubris. I want to advise that, Let the policy reversal that attended Uzoma's situation be consistent in all sectors of the economy.

@Ndidimagbula

stop the deception. The figures account for the current strength of the work force. We are concentrating on the recruitment actually embarked upon by your sister !!

Immigration boss sacked

Different stroke for different folk, immigration boss sacked for suspected bribe scandal at d on going recruitment while the civil defence boss was given a pat on d back even after his second in command was caught red hand collecting 200 000K for each recriutmen letter. What an injustice.

Spoken Like A fool that you are

Only A fool, illiterate and Bastard can say all the garbage u have just said. Hater of igbo's, nothing u say about the igbos will make any different.while u are there dying with hate and poverty, the igbos world wide are smiling to the bank with their hard earned currency.Lazy Yoruba Goat.

Hausas are the cause of all Nigeria's problems.

The Igbos are kidnappers, 419ers, and whatever you call them because Hausas have been majorly in power for more than 40 years. Nigeria used to be looked at with prospects when the world came up with the acronym BRINC but you Hausas damn well made sure the N went out. Today look at Brazil, Russia India, and China. South Africa's S is even ready to replace Nigeria's N in that list. That is what happens when you have leaders who should't even be allowed to administer a cattle farm to run a a country. Hausas have dragged Nigeria to a coma state thats why we have Igbo criminals doing 419, yahoo yahoo and rituals. Yoruba criminals doing gbomo gbomo, rituals, Agbero and yahoo yahoo. And Hausas doing suicide bombing. People without brains cannot think up schemes that will make other people they never met pay money. If Hausas had brains, Nigeria would not be where it is today.

The drums have started beating again.

Many of these buffoons talking here should read the news especially the part that said. "The records made available to the journalists showed that contrary to the accusations, Of all the 23,316 staff,the highest beneficiaries came from the North-central with 22%, while the North-west and South-south came second with 18% respectively.
The South-east (where she's from), had 15%, South-west 14% and North-east with 13 %.
The Minister kept dabbling in the affairs of her office so he could play politics with who gets what juicy position.
The events that led to the civil war are repeating themselves. We Igbos need to leave the Hausas and their wives the Yorubas. All statistics point to this fact.

Fools paradise

Any Igbo/Biafra person still hanging around and singing 'Nigeria' anthem, already is sick in the head and if they think it is a joke, they should expect their own humiliation and maybe senseless death in the hands of those that has made no secret of the hatred on them..
Just go around and so-called 'Nigeria' forum and see how much hate they 'owner of so-called Nigeria' have for the Igbo/Biafrans. So how on earth will any sane person that is rejected think being a wuzzy or foot mat will change the perception of them?
Madam Uzoma, maybe, now you can find the true progressives, people who believes in freedom and true independence of Igbos/Biafrans. Or you can dust your skirt and move back to Abuja, hanging again for another round of abuse from nonentities, because you fail to realise your self!

GOOD TALK, BUT I STILL PRAY

GOOD TALK, BUT I STILL PRAY THAT THERE EYES WILL OPEN AND ALL THEY [ THE IGBO`S ] WILL PRAY FOR IS PEACE.

Mrs. Rose Uzoma deserves what

Mrs. Rose Uzoma deserves what she is getting if it is true she did what she has been accused of doing. She does not know how the game is played. She must have noticed other ministries routinely do this kind of thing without any noise. But I am rather saddened that Jonathan’s administration is involved an open double standard. When the current head of CBN openly fired easterners and replaced them wholesale with people from Kano, the then v. president now president said nothing. And no policy reversal since assuming real power. The Mallam is smart. He fired the easterners by appeasing them with good monetary compensation. Has the north completely cowed Jonathan? The answer on the streets of Lagos, Asaba, Enugu, Port Hacourt, Ibadan is a resounding, yes.

Truth be Told!

That's true..Degrees in Cyber crime. That is why they also produce more yahoo yahoo boys than the entire north!

How Many Southerners were Admitted to NDA from 1970-2000? 3

Instead, they introduced quota system without first of all taking affirmative action to compensate the South who were the victims of these historical injustices for 40 years! Yet, through resilience, determination and self-help, the South was able to weather the storm and today they are 100 yrs ahead the North in terms of everything: educationally, technologically, socially, economically etc. And the same North is now blaming the South for Boko Haram and the backwardness of the North when the North has been in power for 40 years and just like the NDA example, used several policies to rule the south as an 'apartheid colony' of the North. Nigerians have short memories. The North hasn't seen anything yet, they should pray Naija survives otherwise they would be worse than Afghanistan. A houss built on injustice can never stand. Long Live Nigeria.

How Many Southerners were Admitted to NDA from 19970-2000? 2

A Southerner could not get admission into an academy run with the resources from the South no matter how qualified! Yet at the same time, when you got to the Nigerian Law School, there was a year there were only 4 students from the entire State of Katsina or Sokoto (I can't remember the exact state again) compared to the South were there were some states with up to 350 Law School students in single year. I guess the North never envisaged a democratic Nig, so they were convinced that control of the military guaranteed control of political power and access to the oil resources of the South. What programme has been put in place by govt to correct such historical injustices and imbalances in the NDA and elsewhere?

How Many Southerners were admitted to NDA from 1970-2000?1

I am not a fan of nepotism, but I grew up in Nigeria at a time where, no matter how brilliant or physically and mentally alert you were, you could not get admission to the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) so long as your name was 'Jacob' instead of 'Yakubu', 'John' instead of 'Yohanna', 'Joseph' instead of 'Yusuf'. It was so bad that as if Southern Nigeria was under apartheid, desperate Southerners started changing their names and states of origin to 'Mohammed', 'Abubakar', 'Sokoto' 'Kano' respectively in order to gain admission into the Cadet programme of NDA, in their own fatherland! How much worse can it get?

@ibu

Shola Ameobi is not Yoruba. He defintely has an igbo father because Ameobi is an IGBO name. He may have a Yoruba mother or igbo parents that were brought up in Yoruba land and hence gave him a yoruba first name.

O SE BABA

I FEAR THIS GOD,MY COUNTRY PEOPLE DO YOU KNOW THAT THE MAN THAT SUPPOSE TO BE IN THE POSITION INITIALLY HAPPEN TO BE FROM MY HOME TOWN IN EKITI STATE BUT BUT THEY PLAY POLITICS AND PUT THE MAN ASIDE,AND THE ACT LED TO THE MAN SERIOUS STROKE UP TILL NOW,BUT GOD WHO SEES EVERYTHING THING HAS FINALLY PROVED HIMSELF ,YOU CAN SEE NOW THAT THE WOMAN HAS BEEN DISGRACE OUT OF OFFICE,BABA O SE OOOOOOOO

BIAFRANS MAKE NOISE TOO MUCH

It was EBELE who booted her out not Akintola,or Bisi nor Abubakar.Why all these noise from BIAFRA,these people have started again,the woman was wrong and being corrupt,EBELE decided to do the right thing now and you people are making such a loud noise.Let me ask you people,who are you directing your grudge to,is it to the yorubas and Hausas ? We have not forgoten what you did in 1966 when you people carried out the first coup in the history of Nigeria by killing only leaders from these regions,which you are paying for till date,and untill the end of this country you cant finish paying for your crime against humanity.

GO BACK TO BIAFRA

This Igbo people make mouth too much,they are always first in calling on the division of Nigeria.I think we should let them go to their land.tell me,how many yoruba,hausa,Urhobo,fulani or igala man has a shop in igbo land talkless of house,but go round this country and see how they out smart the indigines there by taking their land and they would never allow you to own one in their state.Go to lagos and see what they owned or visit kano,Abuja,jos,ibadan etc and see the houses and busineses they own,yet they would not allow you that opportunity in their state.Let see if this country is divided who would suffer.The hausa man can only take his Shoe shining and suya tools and return back to his land,while the yoruba man can leave the east with his taxis easily.Tell us which of the resourses do you have apart of being the kidnapping capital of Nigeria and ritualist/419.please go to hell

Addressing Imbalance

What is all this talk about someone violating the so-called Federal Character principle? The same dubious principle that bequeathed 7 states to the north-west and compels the industrious south-east to subsist with only 5? Maybe Mrs Uzoma was just trying to balance things on the basis of this historic inequality and inequity
