The attention of management of the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) has been drawn to unfounded speculations of alleged sales of employment to members of the public in the just concluded recruitment exercise in the Agency.
We wish to state categorically that these speculations are untrue, as the recruitment exercise into few vacant positions as advertised by the Agency followed due process as stipulated by law.

It must be emphasized that adverts were made on the Agency’s website to sensitize members of the public as well as request for applications to fill these vacant positions.

We therefore appeal to the general public to disregard these unfounded allegations, as the Agency will never condone or engage in any act that is contrary to the rule of law or against the public interest.

However, anyone with substantial proof or evidence against any individual or group of people should come forward with such to the office of the Director-General for formal complaint and necessary action on the part of management.


Dr Felix Ale,

Head, Media and Corporate Communications
