Not less than 184 senior civil servants in the Ministry of Budget and National Planning have been redeployed to ministries and agencies that have little or nothing to do with budget, as a punishment for their roles in padding this year’s fiscal document. This is coming on the heels of President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to deal ruthlessly with top civil servants who altered figures in the 2016 budget thereby making nonsense of his zero budget plan. A top official in the Budget office confirmed this to Vanguard that 22 top officers from the Budget Office of the Federation were affected in the mass redeployment. The source further said of the 22 top officials indicted in the budget office, 4 were directors on Level 17, 6 were deputy directors while 12 were Assistant directors. The redeployment was conveyed to the affected offices by the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation. To this end, all the affected officers, according to the directive, are to report in their new locations on or before the close of work today, 11th March 2016.
