National president of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, Dr. Tommy Etim Okon, has expressed confidence that the union would be vindicated over the ongoing probe of the union by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He premised his position on the massive support given by the union since the petition was filed before the anti-graft commission, adding that the union would emerge stronger at the end of the day.
Speaking with the media in Lagos, Okon said, “When the report is out, it will be very clear to the public. Why the workers decided to defend the union is because they also believe in the activities and programmes which have been a greater benefit to them.
“You can see from the last publication, the number of workers that went to the site of the building which was allegedly sold and also here now.
“You can see I am in the office which was allegedly sold, so most of those petitions are very frivolous and we feel there is no need for us to pay any attention to it, but we should rather begin to move forward and get to the mission of where we are confident that the association is driven.”
He added that there is no internal crisis in the union as insinuated, saying the union is rather on aggressive capacity development drive which took some of the union members to Dubai recently for training.
He tasked the union members on increased productivity and exhibition of requisite outstanding performance through research
