Presidency Fires Director Over Plagiarised Speech.

The Deputy Director linked to the plagiarism incident in President Muhammadu Buhari’s speech when he launched the “Change Begins With Me” campaign has been redeployed from the State House.



Investigation by Daily Trust indicates that the disciplinary process has begun for the officer, who was discovered to have copied part of a speech by President Barack Obama of the United States.

“At 8 o’clock on the Monday morning following the allegations, he reported at the office of the Head of Service, and he was immediately asked to vacate his position and office at the State House pending further measures which will be guided by civil service rules and regulations,” Daily Trust gathered.

The Presidency has also taken steps to avoid a repeat of such an embarrassing occurrence which sources said goes against everything that President Muhammadu Buhari represents and stands for.

A new digital process has been put in place in the State House to aid the process of drafting speeches. This includes the provision of tools that detect plagiarism, similar to those used by editors and academics around the world.
When contacted over this development, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity simply said “the officer is no longer in the State House.”

The government of President Buhari had since expressed regret over what it said was an unfortunate incident, expressing hopes that Nigeria can look beyond it to embrace the message of change.





*I would rather embrace the plagiarised speech than embrace the message of change which comes with hunger oh..lol

When PMB was reading the speech I guess he was feeling good with himself and acting like it was his ideas. Even his famous 'I belong to nobody and to every body' was also plagiarised, but he was feeling like an orator. He sacked him due to incompetence, but the irony of it all is that he is also an incompetent president. Besides, why is the director unnamed? I doubt if any body was sacked, not every Nigerian is daft to believe everything.

you have the effrontery to sack anyone ? How many Nigerian Schools in the whole 36 states, from secondary to University level train students on "Plagiarism" and "turnitin" did we have such training ?

Do we have that technology in place in our educational system ? If not that I had a training online with an internaional school how would I have known.. (mtcheeeeeew)

So he couldn't learn from what happened to Mrs Trump after her plagiarised speech of Mrs Obama? Or he thought the counties were too far apart for people to notice? Very dumb of him
