The Director General of the National Civil Registration Authority (NCRA), Mr. Mohamed Mubashir Massaquoi has alleged that corrupt activities have been going on in the Authority for quite some time now.

He further disclosed that unconscionable officials went ahead and recruited some 150 staff with designations in strategic positions, hence, he said, the President decided to hold on to recruitments up to past September. According him, officials in the authority have been recruiting staff in a very corrupt manner.

The Director General has reportedly asked all the staff to submit original copies of their appointment letters including attendance registers and that there are cases where more than two staff submitted the same appointment letters.

It was as a result of these anomalies that the Secretary of State and the Director General of Human Resource Management Office (HRMO) held a meeting and recommended that all appointments should be reviewed.
