Nigeria’s Controller-General (CG) of the Federal Fire Service (FFS) Alhaji Liman Ibrahim,has refused to retire despite spending 44 years in public service.
SaharaReporters gathered that Liman started his public career as a pioneer Cadet in the Niger State Fire Service in 1977.
However, sources have informed SaharaReporters that Liman, who by law is an illegal public servant, has been bribing members of the National Assembly committees on interior.
They accused the Fire Service chief of doing everything within his capacity to manipulate the extant laws and regulations to remain in office.
“This is someone who joined the Niger State Fire Service and went for training at the then Kano State Fire Service in 1977. By law, that was when his service in public service started. Public service rule says 35 years, both state and federal or 60 years of age.
“He later trained at the Fire Service Training School, Lagos in 1986. He left Niger State Fire Service where he headed for several years to establish the FCT Fire Service in 2001. He then crossed over to the Federal Fire Service in 2015. In all, he has put in approximately 44 years service counting from 1977,” a source told SaharaReporters.
