Authorities at the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, has disclosed the reason for its recent secret hiring process. The apex bank said it opted for a secret process of hiring new staff in the past two years because the bank was doing “targeted recruitment”

Daily Trust had claimed the CBN secretly hired 909 staff recently with Sahara Reporters saying President Muhammadu Buhari's nephew, daughter of Police IG Solomon Arase, and relatives of other prominent Nigerians are among those recruited.

The CBN’s acting Director of Corporate Communications, Isaac Okorafor, however said the bank did nothing illegal or wrong in hiring without advertising, Premium Times reports.

“In the last two years, we have had cause to recruit specialists, and what the law says is that if we are going for that kind of recruitment we should apply for waiver, so that we can do targeted recruitment,” Mr. Okoroafor said. He said the bank obtained waiver from the Federal Character Commission.

“The other issue is that there are states that are not well represented (in the CBN), and in this case we focus on those states to recruits people of certain classes that we used to cover the shortfall in those states,” Mr. Okoroafor said.

Mr. Okoroafor however said he was not ready to confirm or deny the names on the list.

“Is there any qualified Nigerian who does not have the right to work in the CBN?” he asked.
