Shettima warns aides against unethical practices

Vice President Kashim Shettima, on Monday, warned new political aides against unethical practices and conduct that undermines public trust and taints the Tinubu-led administration.

He said their new roles expose them to more scrutiny and criticism. Therefore, they must be mindful of their words and actions.

The State House Director of Information, Office of the Vice President, Olusola Abiola, disclosed this in a statement he signed on Monday titled ‘State House Retreat: Avoid actions that could tarnish reputation of Tinubu administration-VP Shettima’.

The 18-day exercise is organised by the State House in conjunction with Direct Knowledge Consult Ltd. and will run from September 4-22, 2023.

Speaking to participants, which include political aides and senior civil servants on the topic Forging a Path to Responsible Governance: A Call to Political Aides, Shettima said, “The responsibility you carry isn’t merely about fulfilling your role; it encompasses the aspirations of our entire nation.”

He noted that the “retreat is designed to facilitate your transition and equip you with the fundamental tenets of public sector administration and governance.”

Shettima reasoned that their failure could erode public trust, jeopardise national security, and undermine the very integrity of the administration.
