At­ten­tion, GM KASTELEA

Daily Trust - - OPINION -

KASTELEA placed an ad­vert in the Daily Trust news­pa­per of Mon­day 23rd Novem­ber, 2015 call­ing on in­ter­ested grad­u­ates to ap­ply for the 469 po­si­tions of Traf­fic/ En­vi­ron­men­tal Mar­shals in the agency and the sub­se­quent ten (10) days train­ing camp in Kachia for short­listed can­di­dates.

On 20th May, 2016 trainees were asked to sign ac­cep­tance let­ter be­fore their ap­point­ment let­ters were is­sued to them, I stand to be cor­rected. Only to dis­cover that they were ap­pointed as Mar­shal As­sis­tant I, while other priv­i­leged grad­u­ates were ap­pointed as Prin­ci­pal Mar­shals, Mar­shals, Prin­ci­pal Mar­shal As­sis­tant, for rea­sons best known to the man­age­ment.

Let me quote Martin Luther King Jr, “In­jus­tice any­where is a threat to jus­tice ev­ery­where.” My in­ves­ti­ga­tion fur­ther re­veals that some of the ap­pointed mar­shals were yet to com­plete their one year manda­tory Na­tional Youth Ser­vice (NYSC). Sir, I am com­pelled to bring to your at­ten­tion the fol­low­ing;

One, all the agents should know their con­di­tions of ser­vice, with­hold­ing in­for­ma­tion only to have it get out through an­other source can make the man­age­ment seems dis­hon­est; Two, Some ag­grieved agents have vowed to aug­ment their monthly take home pay by com­pro­mis­ing the agency’s watch­word.

Thank you for your at­ten­tion to this mat­ter.
