BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Federal public servants, in particular, Presidency staffers have been warned to desist from exposing official letters to the public.
Chief of Staff (COS) to President Muhammadu Buhari, Abba Kyari gave the warning Monday night in Abuja, during send forth, retirement and redeployment of some State House staff.
Kyari emphasized that any of the State House staff caught indulging in the habit, including sitting on files of people or organizations, would face due sanctions.
COS who restated that the Presidency would not tolerate leaking of official letters, disclosed that he had seen one of such (leaked letters) with his signature.
The Presidential aide retorted: “I do not know who that is; I do not know why anyone should do that. But please make sure that does not happen”.
He stressed that anything that was written, would at last come out, as “it is not a secret, but maintained that it was a bad habit for letters to be leaked, before it is made public by the relevant authorities.
Kyari warned the State House staff not to fall into trap of “somebody asking you to bring a letter, because if by accident you are found or the letter traced to you, clearly it would not be something that we would tolerate.”
The COS also advocated for discipline and dedication among the State House workers, as well as cautioned against gossips and allowing the official works to suffer due to negligence.
