PRESIDENCY THREATENS TO SANCTION STAFF CAUGHT LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION
The Presidency has administered the oath of secrecy on staff of the State House with a warning that any staff found leaking classified information to the public would be sanctioned.
The Permanent Secretary, State House, Tijjani Umar, who spoke when the oath was being administered on the concerned staff by Justice Hamzat Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court, at the State House, Abuja, warned that the presidency would not tolerate truancy and breach of oath of secrecy by the staff, stressing that leaking classified information without authorization was a grievous offence.
Umar added that prior to the administration of oath, a sensitization training was held for the workers so that the official Secret Act will be spelt out to them clearly. Umar, who disclosed that the exercise would be continuous, expressed delight that so far, the State House has not recorded any breach of information.
