The federal government has reinstated Yushau Shuaib, a civil servant who was forcefully retired in 2013 after he wrote a critical piece on Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former minister of finance, complaining of the lopsided appointments in the finance sector under her rein as Minister.

Civil servant forcefully retired after criticizing Okonjo-Iweala over lopsided appointments in 2013, gets reinstated

Shuaib was chief information officer on grade level 14 at the ministry of information, had filed a lawsuit against Okonjo-Iweala, the federal civil service commission (FCSC) and federal ministry of information over the sudden retirement.

In a November 2017 judgment, David Isele of the National Industrial Court declared the letter retiring Shuaib from service null and void, saying it was in flagrant violation of the civil service rules.

He ordered that the civil servant be reinstated with immediate effect.

Shuaibu’s reinstatement letter was released an handed to him on Monday September 17th.

Reacting to the development, an excited Shuaib in a statement said

“It is exactly five years ago when my colleague in the federal ministry of information, M Ibrahim Iro Ma’aji called that he was directed to deliver a shocking letter to me. I told him where he could meet me. He felt like crying when he delivered the sad letter of my Compulsory Retirement from the public service in October 2013 which was deliberately backdated to June of the same year. The sudden retirement came after my disagreement with the most powerful Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala over an opinion article on lopsided appointments in the economic sector. After a five years legal battle and my victory in the court, Hon Minister of Information, Mr. Lai Mohammed has directed that I should be reinstated immediately. The letter for the reinstatement was delivered to me yesterday September 17, 2018 again by my colleague Ibrahim Maaji who is full of smile. I thank everyone for the goodwill and prayers over these years. I learnt I won’t be deployed or posted to Sambisa Forest, the fear five years ago.”
