AUPCTRE threatens to picket NiMet over appointment of non-professionals

The Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Services Employees (AUPCTRE) has condemned the appointments of non-career professionals into technical and scientific directorate positions in the National Meteorological Agency (NiMet).

The union, at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting noted that the act would hinder productivity, professionalism and demoralise career professionals in the agency.

It said industrial harmony may be threatened if the Federal Government fails to respect its position, saying, “As failure to do so may lead to non-sustainability of existing industrial harmony in the agency.”

AUPCTRE, however, called on the Federal Government to urgently reverse the appointment made by the Minister of State for Aviation due to the peculiarity and technicalities of meteorology into the directorates of Weather Forecasting Services; Applied Meteorological Services; Research and Training, as well as Engineering and Technical Services.

A communique issued at the end of the meeting, signed by its General Secretary, Yusuf Zambuk, stressed that it was the opinion of the union that the appointed directors were novices in the system and therefore insist that the ministry reverses the positions, especially the professional cadre.

The union hinted that several letters have been written to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the Minister of State for Aviation and the Minister of Labour and Employment, which are yet to receive a response.

“We, therefore, demand an immediate reversal of the appointments because as a union, we cannot fold our hands and watch strange individuals imposed on our members,” it stated.


  1. I oversee a vape store directory site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that additionally advertises CBD items. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape store web directory. We do not offer for sale CBD products like CBD oil. We solely offer promotion and marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health Store and if you take a close look, you will see that they offer a somewhat considerable range of CBD product lines, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It emerges that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to many different companies. Because of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has limited my payment choices and now, I am greatly dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have checked with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law office in London and they stated that what PayPal is doing is absolutely unlawful and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am still to consult with one more legal representative from a US law practice in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.
