A retired former acting Registrar of the Federal College of Education (FCE), Yola, Yahya Hammanyaji Jada is to face an investigative panel constituted by the College Governing Council to investigate allegations of issuance of fake employment letters, PR Nigeria can report.

The investigative panel is constituted following an investigative report published by PR Nigeria revealing alleged employment racketeering in the institution involving about 1000 ‘paying applicants’ and is to conclude investigation and submit report within two (2) weeks with effect from 31st March, 2022.

PR Nigeria has reliably gathered that the Council was angered by the refusal of the retired acting Registrar to honor invitation by College Governing Council to appear in person to give detailed explanation bordering on allegation of issuance and documentation of about 1000 unapproved employment letters.

The Governing Board is also concerned over refusal by the retired former acting Registrar to hand over all documents related to the controversial employment and that he has allegedly continued to issue additional 60 backdated employment letters few weeks before his retirement, even in the presence of a substantive College Registrar.

The Retired Former acting Registrar, Yahya Hammanyaji Jada who refused to appear before the council on health grown has admitted issuance and documentation of unapproved and fake employment letters to unsuspecting members of the public during his tenure as acting Registrar of the College in the staff recruitment exercise, PR Nigeria has gathered.

The retired former acting Registrar, who earlier told PR Nigeria that the employment saga was a “mare allegation” however confirmed the allegation in a signed report he forwarded to the council saying, “Along the line, my signature was forged and appointment letters were issued and documented with ID Cards issued.”

Jada also confirmed allegation that monies exchanged hands during the employment racketeering by a syndicate of staff within the institution believed to be closed to him, saying “ the Department of State Security Service (DSS) in Adamawa State had investigated the matter and submitted a report on the matter.”

The retired former acting Registrar is said to have deliberately refused to disclosed the exact number of persons he issued employment letters and documented with genuine staff identity cards signed by him without clearance from the Head of Service of the Federation.

He has equally deliberately refused to hand over documents pertaining to the employment scandal to the College authority even after retirement on 24th March, 2022 and has allegedly continued to secretly issue about 60 backdated employment letters to unsuspecting individuals.

Alhaji Jada says his refusal to hand over the employment documents to a substantive Registrar was because he is awaiting clearance for employment of staff from the office of the Head of Service, which according to him is delayed by her “tight schedule and constant travels.”

He however promised to follow up the matter in Abuja while on medical checkup and report back to the Governing Council on any further development.

He said, “My concern has always been to conclude this exercise before my retirement because the exercise witnessed some forgeries and I didn’t want to leave such without clearing such cases, however, this has not happened. Now that I have retired, I would hand over the documents as soon as I came back with the hope that those taking over will do justice to the exercise.”

PR Nigeria gathered from impeccable source that the Council after considering the report submitted by the retired former acting Registrar, directed that he should properly handover all documents related to the employment exercise as well as a comprehensive handover report of his stewardship to the substantive Registrar with immediate effect and unfailingly appear before the investigative panel with maximum cooperation.
