Budget padding: Buhari removes 22 top directors from budget office


President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday approved the immediate deployment of 22 top directors from the Budget office.

The redeployment is part of a service-wide posting involving about 184 senior staff in various ministries, departments and agencies, in the federal civil service.


The 22 officials, who were posted out of the Budget Office with immediate effect, are to report to their new stations on Friday, March 11.

The postings announced by the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation affected four directors, six deputy directors and 12 assistant directors.

The names of the affected officials were not immediately available.

Reports say 14 other senior officials have been posted from various MDAs, to replace the redeployed officials.

The redeployment of the 22 top officials of the Budget Office may not be unconnected with the directive by the President for all those identified to have been involved in the embarrassing budget padding controversy to be sanctioned.

The president had assured Nigerians recently that his administration would not spare any effort to ensure that aĺl officials involved in the budget padding controversy were not only identified, but also sanctioned.
