He was appointed on Jan­uary 12, 2016 by the former Secretary to Government of the Federation (SGF), Engr. Babachair Lawal, via a let­ter with reference number SGF.35/S.5/11/272.

In another letter dated January 7, 2021 and signed by the Secretary to the Federal Government, Boss Musta­pha, Abdallah was mandated to handover to the Secretary of the agency, Mr. Shadrach Haruna, on or before Janu­ary 10, 2021 (today).

Haruna, who was in the United Kingdom during the notice, had to cut short his trip as he hurried­ly returned to Nigeria at the weekend. However, there is disquiet in the paramilitary agency as the sacked chairman em­barked on a massive recruit­ment, barely 24 hours after he got a letter to handover.

NDLEA spokesman, Dep­uty Commander of Narcotics (DCN) Jonah Achema, who announced this in a state­ment on Friday in Abuja urged successful candidates to visit the agency’s website www.ndlea.gov.org for the list adding that those shortlisted had also been contacted via E-mail and SMS.

According to him, the candidates had applied for different vacancies, some of which were invited for job competency test.

“The affected candidates, numbering 5, 000, are to ap­pear at the Agency’s Acad­emy, Citadel Counter-Nar­cotics Nigeria, (CCNN), Katton-Rikkos, Jos, Plateau State for the screening and documentation exercise be­tween January 10 and 23, 2021 at 0900 hours daily.

“The candidates are di­vided into four different groups for the screening, in adherence to the COVID-19 pandemic protocol.

“The order and schedule for the exercise according to the group into which the can­didates fall are also indicated. They are expected to arrive a day ahead of their screening period,” said Achema.

He added that successful candidates were expected to be issued letters of appoint­ment and documented im­mediately upon successful screening.

“Candidates are, there­fore, to report for the screen­ing exercise with their guar­antors’ forms, originals and duplicates of academic cre­dentials, birth certificate or age declaration and indigene certificates.

“They are also expected to come along with certificate of medical fitness from a government hospital as well as a pair of shorts, T-shirts, canvass and stockings,” the NDLEA spokesman said.
