Tension in Yola Upper Benue River Basin Dev. Authority over MD’s tenure

The Upper Benue River Basin Development Authority (UBRBDA) is currently subsumed in a seismic tension over the alleged refusal of its Managing Director, Eng. Abubakar Halilu Muazu to vacate office after his tenure of office has lapsed six days ago. Documents seen by our reporter indicated that Muazu was appointed via a memo by the immediate past Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir David Lawal on June 6, 2016. In the letter dated January 16, 2017, Lawal who conveyed the appointment stated that: ” I’m pleased to inform you that the president of the federal republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR has approved your appointment as Managing Director, Upper Benue River Basin Development Authority for an initial period of four years. “The appointment took effect from June 6, 2016 and your emoluments and other conditions of service as are provided under certain political, public and judicial office holders, salaries and allowances.” This paper gathered that following his failure to vacate office after serving out his tenure on June 6, 2020, some aggrieved staff of the organisation have commenced subterranean moves to get him ousted as they said all actions he took in office are null and void going by the fact that he was occupying the office illegally. Abubakar Halilu Muazu, Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer; UBRBDA, Yola. The unease calm in the organization became more glaring via a letter which the Director of Human Resources, Murtala H. Modibbo forwarded to the embattled Managing Director. In the letter dated June 8, 2020 seen by our reporter, Modibbo reminded Muazu that he is currently occupying the office illegally as his tenure has lapsed on June 6, 2020. “Your appointment letter Ref No. SGF. 6/S.5/C.2/III/964 dated January 16, 2017 refers. “According to the letter, your tenure ended on June 6, 2020. “I wish to also draw your attention to the content of a circular Ref. No SGF 50/S.II/C.2/268 December 4, 2017 on end of tenure processes for heads of Extra-ministerial, Departments, Directors General, Chief Executive Officers of Parastatals, Agencies, Commissions and Government owned companies and succession guidelines for your information and necessary action,” Modibbo told Muazu. In the same vein, this paper was also privileged to see another memo addressed to the chairman board of the UBRBDA by the secretary of the board, Murtala H. Modibbo. The letter dated June 9, 2020 and copied to the board members was titled; “Implied existing vacuum in the office of MD of this authority.” In the letter Modibbo stated: “The purpose of this letter is to draw the attention of the board to the vacuum seemingly created in the office of the MD of the authority. “Records available indicated that Eng. Abubakar Halilu Muazu’s tenure has ended on the June 6, 2020 for an initial period of 4 years and should have under normal circumstances vacated office going by the extant circular from the SGF Ref No. SGF.50/S.II/62/268 dated December 4, 2017. “The authority’s day to day activities including financial commitments are still ongoing which requires the CEO’s legal status as he sanctions, chairs and directs activities that could be challenged if his mandate has terminated,” the board secretary noted.
