Tinubu Threatens to Deal With Workers Leaking Secret Documents

by Victor Ndubuisi

The government of Tinubu has sent a strong warning to state personnel who are disseminating confidential material without authorization, threatening legal action if they don’t stop.

The warning comes in the wake of a memo that was recently leaked online and came from the office of Minister of Finance Wale Edun regarding significant Hajj subsidy allocation.

The Head of the Federation’s Civil Service, Folasede Yemi-Esan, declared that her agency had taken action to stop the public from learning about confidential government information.

Yemi-Esan emphasised the discomfort that the government feels as a result of these disclosures in a memorandum dated February 19, 2024 and posted on the website of the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation.


The memo, tagged HCSF/3065/VI/189, stated, “It has been observed with dismay the increase in the cases of leakage of sensitive official documents in Ministries, Departments and Agencies. This is very embarrassing to the government and therefore unacceptable.

“As part of the efforts to curb this undesirable development, all permanent secretaries are to fast-track the migration to the digitalized workflow system and ensure effective deployment of the Enterprise Content Management Solution.

“This will reduce physical contact with official documents, thereby checking the increasing incidence of leakage and circulation.

“Furthermore, permanent secretaries are advised to strongly warn all staff against leaking and circulating official information and documents.

“Any officer caught engaging in such an unbecoming act will be severely dealt with in line with the relevant provisions of the Public Service Rules and other existing circulars.”
