Open letter to Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice

Let me start by expressing my dismay over the way  the management team of the Nigerian Institute of Leather and Science Technology (NILEST), Zaria is running the affairs of the college with impunity and total disregard for the terms and conditions of service of the college.

Sir, it is rather unfortunate that despite the several patriotic attempts and interventions by some respected individuals and organisations,  the state of impunity in the NILEST Zaria is now growing out of hands.

In the first place, it is seriously disheartening to say that the Chief Executive Officer of the college, Dr. Eucharia Ngozi Oparah is piloting the affairs of the college in an acting capacity for over three years (precisely since June 2017) without renewal of appointment as Ag Chief Executive Officer for all this while.

Sir, you will recall that on 9th May 2017 the Ministry of Science and Technology advertised the vacant position of the Chief Executive Officer of the college but the selection process is up till now uncertain and inconclusive for no justifiable reason.

It is rather unfortunate to say that at present, the composition of the members of the college management team is lopsided. This is due to the fact that thirteen (13) out of fifteen (15) are from one faith. This is also critically insensitive and irrational to the country’s demographic structure and also a grave violation of the federal character principle as enshrined in Section “C” of the Third Schedule of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

Correspondingly, the composition of the college’s workforce proved the lopsidedness and other irregularities associated with recruitment exercises of the college at various times in the past.

Sir, there is an urgent desire to revisit how the management team of the Nigerian Institute of Leather and Science Technology is running the affairs of the college so as to compel them to operate within the limit of the law, especially the selection of a substantive chief executive officer and other irregularities pointed above.
