SOS From a Concerned Nigerian Citizen

DEAR SIR / MADAM,

SAVE OUR SOULS

TEMPORARY STAFFS OF FEDERAL MORTGAGE BANK OF

NIGERIA WHO HAVE BEEN WORKING IN THE BANK FOR

MORE THAN 6 YEARS & ABOVE.
I JOINED FEDERAL MORTGAGE BANK OF NIGERIA

(FMBN) 7 YEARS AGO AS A CONTRACT / TEMPORARY


STAFF (WHEREAS THERE ARE SOME IN OTHER STATES

OF THE FEDERATION THAT HAVE JOINED MORE THAN 8

TO 12 YEARS AGO).

UNFORTUNATELY NONE OF THE ABOVE TEMPORARY

STAFFS INCLUDING MYSELF HAVE BEEN CONFIRMED

SINCE (TO DATE, 2017).

IN 2013/2014 THERE WAS AN AUDIT OF THE BANK

BRANCH WHERE I AM PRESENTLY, BY EXTERNAL

AUDITORS FROM CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (CBN)

WHO NOTICED THE ANOMALIES IN THE

REGULARISATION OF THE TEMPORARY STAFFS THAT

HAVE BEEN ON THIS BASIS FOR THE PAST 3 TO 8 YEARS

(ALSO IN OTHER STATES) THEN, WHICH WE BELIEVE IS

AGAINST WHAT LABOUR LAW STIPULATED “NO

APPOINTMENT MUST BE ON TEMPORARY BASIS FOR

MORE THAN 2 YEARS AND ABOVE” (NOT TO TALK OF A

FEDERAL ESTABLISHMENT LIKE FEDERAL MORTGAGE

BANK OF NIGERIA).

IN 2014, THERE WAS ANOTHER (2 ND ) ROUTINE AUDIT

CARRIED OUT BY THE ANOTHER SET OF EXTERNAL

AUDITORS ALSO FROM CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA

WHO AGAIN NOTICE THE ANOMALICE AND

ABNORMALITY IN THE REGULARISATION AND

CONFIRMATION OF THE TEMPORARY STAFFS SINCE

THEIR (CBN AUDITORS) 1 ST ROUTINE AUDIT.

A LETTER WAS THEN WRITTEN TO FMBN HEAD OFFICE

IN ABUJA, IN RESPECT OF THIS TEMPORARY STAFFS

ISSUES.

SO IN 2015, THEY (FMBN, HEAD OFFICE) WROTE A NEW

LETTER TO ALL TEMPORARY STAFFS NATIONWIDE,

STATING THAT THEY ARE JUST BEING EMPLOYED AS A

TEMPORARY STAFF FOR A YEAR, (IGNORING THE

NUMBER OF YEARS EARLIER SPENT) WHICH HAPPENS

IMMEDIATELY AFTER CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA AUDIT

REPORT, WHICH MADE THEM (FMBN) LAID EMBARGO ON

TAKING-IN NEW TEMPORARY STAFFS, THIS MAKE US

THINK IT WILL USHER THE WAY FOR OUR

REGULARISATION. THERE WAS A TIME WHEN WE

BELIEVE THAT OUR CONFIRMATION WOULD COME,

WHICH WAS WHEN THE EX-MANAGING DIRECTOR IN

PERSON OF “MR. YAU KUMO” CONFIRMED THE

APPOINTMENT OF SOME TEMPORARY STAFFS IN THE

NORTH WHO HAS NOT EVEN WORK FOR 3 YEARS

CLAIMING STAFFS IN THOSE STATES ARE NOT GOING

TO THE OFFICE REGULARLY BECAUSE OF TERRORISM

GOING IN THAT PART OF NIGERIA.

SURPRISINGLY, EARLY 2016, NEW INFLUX OF

TEMPORARY STAFFS WERE BEEN TAKEN, THEREBY

INCREASING OUR FEAR, BECAUSE THEY WERE BEING

BROUGHT IN BY TOP PEOPLE IN THE ORGANISATION

(EDS’, GMS’, AND OTHER TOP CADRES IN THE

ORGANISATION).

LATE 2016, ISSUES OF REGULARISATION WERE RAISED

BUT BECAUSE OF THE NEW TEMPORARY STAFFS WHICH

THE TOP PEOPLE BROUGHT, THEY DO NOT WANT THEM

TO BE GIVEN LOWER CADRE WHICH IS THE AVAILABLE

POSITION AT PRESENT, BUT WE THAT ARE LONG

OVERDUE EVEN PREFER IT. (JUST FOR US TO ENJOY

PERMANENT APPOINTMENTS BENEFITS).

SIR / MADAM, KINDLY SAVE OUR SOULS WE ARE NO

MORE GETTING YOUNGER, SOME OF OUR COLLEAGUES

WHO ARE WORKING IN OTHER ESTABLISHMENT ARE

MORE FAR AHEAD OF US. DESPITE OUR INDEPTH

KNOWLEGDE OF THE JOB IN THE BANK EVEN MORE

THAT SOME OF THEIR PERMANENT STAFFS.

ALSO LATE IN THAT 2016, INSTEAD OF CONFIRMING AND

GIVING US OUR LETTER OF PERMANENT EMPLOYMENT /

APPOINTMENT THEY ARE USING THE EXCESS MONEY

REALISED UNNECESSARY ON 3 TO 4 TRAININGS AND

LOANS, EVEN FOR STAFFS THAT DID NOT NEED THEM

AT ALL.

DID WE OFFEND THEM? AND WHY ARE THEY TREATING

US LIKE THIS? ARE WE NOT HUMAN BEINGS? AND WE

ARE THE ONES DOING THE BULK PART OF THE WORK IN

THE BANK.

LIKE EARLY THIS YEAR 2017 (JANUARY), THE EXCESS

REALISED LAST YEAR WHICH HAS NOT BEEN

EXHAUSTED ARE STILL BEEN USED FOR UNNECESSARY

EARLY TRAININGS (DESPITE BUDGET NOT BEEN

PASSED BY NATIONAL ASSEMBLY) FOR STAFF, WHICH

HAS NOT BEEN LIKE THIS BEFORE (AS EARLY AS

JANUARY).

YOU CAN GET THE FACTS AND FIGURES YOURSELF

THROUGH THOROUGH INVESTIGATIONS AND FACT

FINDINGS.

WE EVEN LEARNT THAT THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE

FORMER M.D. (RICHARD ESIN) WENT TO MINISTER OF

WORKS, POWER & HOUSING (BARR. BABATUNDE

FASHOLA), COMPLANING THAT TEMPORARY STAFFS

ARE TOO MANY, THAT THEY SHOULD BE LAID OFF

(WHY?)

FOR EXAMPLE SOME OF THE BANK’S INTERNAL AUDITS

CARRIED OUT, HAS STATED OUR DAY OF EMPLOYMENT

IN THEIR REPORTS, AND LIKEWISE ON MONTHLY

RETURNS OF TEMPORARY STAFFS IN EACH STATE

OFFICE BEING SENT TO THE HEAD OFFICE ON REGULAR

BASIS. IT CAN ALSO BE SEEN ON OUR INDIVIDUAL I.D.

CARDS.

2008, HAPPENS TO BE THE YEAR REGULARISATION WAS

DONE LAST. IN 2010 THERE WAS NEW RECRUITMENT, IN

WHICH WE ARE NOT BEEN CONSIDERED FOR

REGULARISATION AT ALL.

WE ARE RELYING ON YOUR ABLE OFFICE TO SOLVE

OUR ISSUES, MAY THE ALMIGHTY GOD CONTINUE TO

BLESS YOU.

THANKS.

N.B.:-

I HAVE TWITTED THESE PEOPLE ON THEIR TWITTER

HANDLE ABOUT THE ISSUES EARLIER (IN MARCH 2017),

BUT I DID NOT HEAR ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THEY ARE:
