President Muhammadu Buhari has again warned political appointees and other government officials against using their positions to bestow undue advantage on anyone seeking government jobs and other favours.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said President Buhari’s repeated warning followed persistent reports of fraudsters using the business cards and purported referral letters from presidential aides and other government officials to solicit employment, contract and other favours, a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday said.

The Minister said Ministries, Departments and Agencies should disregard any purported request from government officials aiming to confer undue advantage on anyone seeking such favours.
He said the Administration had put in place a systematic and disciplined approach to ensure that the government runs smoothly for all Nigerians, whether in the area of employment or contract procurement.
”This system should be allowed to work for all Nigerians without interference,” Alhaji Mohammed said.
