POHAN warns public office holders against corruptly enriching themselves

The National President Public Office Holders Association (POHAN) Bashorun Moses Adeola Eseyin has admonished public office holders not think that while they in office they are being empowered to enrich themselves. 

He spoke at the presentation  of Certificate of Credence  to Dr Solomon Femi Adeyemo on behalf of POHAN in recognition of his uncommon performance as a worthy and Patriotic Public Office Holder in Nigeria.Eseyin ask public office holders to ensure they adhere to the ethics of their job so as not to bring the Association to disrepute.

He explained,”What berthed this union is because of the lack of a unifying voice that can talk to power, who are the people concerned, the public office holders. “Hence the board in its wisdom came about the association and got relevant approval.”He said after assuming office in February their first case was that of a commissioner in Kogi State, that was alleged to have raped a lady. 

“We came out to speak against it and we went further to constitute a committee to look into the matter.”We are there to speak to power, we are there to correct some of these misconceptions by the masses to ensure that the people representing them are doing what is expected.”He said before now the public office holders were not having a voice, saying that now that they are in place by next year many more of their activities would be visible.He said what NLC is to workers as an umbrella union is what POHAN is to public office holders as an umbrella union.

“Invariably POHAN is the parent union for all public office holders whether as a Governor, senator, house of representatives member down to a councillor in as much as you are holding a public office you are automatically a POHAN member by default. “We discovered Dr. Adeyemo’s approach to management as outstanding because everything about Governance boils down to management. “His desire to achieve excellence in his approach to duty attracted us to want to honour him.”Honor is given to whom honor is due and we are giving honor to him to encourage him.”We dont normally give award but certificate of credence to assure him that he is doing well to encourage him so that others after him can emulate him.”

The Kano state information commissioner, Muhammad Garba, revealed reason why Tanko-Yakassai was relieved of his appointment.
He said he was sacked for “unguarded comments”
Although a member of the APC, Tanko-Yakassai had on several occasions criticised the government.
This time around Tanko-Yakasai a.k.a Dawisu, had criticised President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over worsening insecurity in the country.
Garba indicated that the aide could not be allowed to continue to serve in a government he does not believe in as he was unable to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern.

He was reported to have been arrested and detained at the State Security Service (SSS) headquarters in Abuja.

Bawa as EFCC Chairman, Excellent Choice, Says ex-Rep Karimi

Two time member of Federal House of Representatives, Hon Sunday Karimi has commended the recommendation of Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa as new Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), by President Muhammadu Buhari.

In line with the recommendation of Justice Isa Ayo Salami’s panel, President Buhari on Tuesday broke the 18-year tradition of appointing policemen as chairman of the EFCC, with his choice of Bawa, a Course One EFCC Cadet product.

Bawa, if confirmed , will be the first EFCC’s cadet to head the commission. He will replace suspended Acting Chairman Ibrahim Magu.

Hon Karimi, who represented Yagba Federal Constituency, Kogi State in the 7th and 8th Assembly, in a statement on Friday described Bawa’s choice as a round peg in a round hole.

According to the former Rep, “With my deep knowledge of the workings of the outfit in the last decade, the choice of Bawa provides an opportunity for an insider with excellent intellectual abilities, youthful vigor and a total shift from police lock up and charge and bail attitude to transformation into real professionalism in financial crimes investigation as it is carried out in other civilzed communities”.

Karimi declared that contrary to recent attempts to “run Mr Bawa down at all cost”, he is one of the few trusted hands in the organization that are incorriptible.

“He approaches his schedules with humility and he is a very sound officer. He will surely reposition EFCC as a top intelligence outfit. His choice presents an opportunity for those that were trained by the organization to lead the service”, he added
