A civil society organisation under the aegis of Coalition for Justice and Good Governance has scored the director general, National Board for Technological Incubation (NBTI), Engr Mohammed Jibrin, low over the pathetic working environment and conditions under which the workers are made to carry out their duties in the agency.
The national coordinator of the group, Comrade Ibrahim Ibn-Musa who made this known to newsmen in Abuja said, NBTI is one government agency, among others that the organisation had understudied, where the director general has performed abysmally low.
Ibn-Musa noted that the CSO observed that the last four years of Engr. Jibrin’s tenure at NBTI has been woeful, adding that some of the staff, out of frustration and lack of capacity to cope with the demands of their duties had left the agency.
He disclosed that the organisation’s checks at the office confirmed the concerns raised by the staff of the board who, “out of fear of victimisation would not dare to complain to anyone, but rather chose to remain silent until the DG is out of the agency.”
He explained that the visit to the agency showed that NBTI’s website and internet services had all collapsed,adding that the agency’s website was active before the DG assumed office in 2014.
“It could be verified by anyone that, among all the agencies under the federal ministry of science and technology, NBTI is the only agency that has no staff bus for its staff, and painfully, most of the staff reside in the suburbs of Abuja
In a reaction, the DG NBTI, Engr. Dr. Mohammed Jibrin told LEADERSHIP that the allegations are frivolous and aimed at tarnishing his image before Nigerians.
“Thank you very much for referring to me. I run a very transparent and all encouraging leadership. Why are all these coming up at the last week of my first tenure? My staff are being instigated after four years of peaceful co existence with everybody. We are now living in a country where leaders are being insulted anyhow.”
“With these developments, we cannot guarantee our collective future. This is coming because somebody wants to take over leadership by force,” Jibrin said.
He further stated that the Agency is suffering from shortage of funds like all other government agencies in the country.
