Civil servants who have served up to 30 years may have to leave the service before the end of 2015, this is to pave way for fresh bloods into the system as a way of ensuring maximal output and restructuring of the civil service, LEADERSHIP Sunday gathered on good authority.

A source in the office of the Head of Service of the Federation told our correspondent on the condition of anonymity that a memo to that effect has been raised by the head of service to all permanent secretaries as well as heads of agencies and parastatals of the federal government for compliance.

According to our source, this is in line with the directive of the Presidency that all civil servants who have put in 30 years and above may have outlived their usefulness in the service, hence the need to restructure and inject fresh blood into the system.

The source told our correspondent that the Presidency had expressed concerns over the rate of corruption in the civil service, and resolved that the best way to stamp out or reduce corruption that has become the order of the day in the civil service would be to overhaul the entire system.

Our source in the office of the Head of Service also told our correspondent that the HOS was mandated to also ensure that all civil servants involved in any form of corruption be shown the way out, “even if such person or persons have not clocked 30 years in the civil service”.

The source told our correspondent that the HOS is further mandated to ensure that all permanent secretaries and heads of government agencies furnish the office with details of service of all civil servants. “The instruction handed my boss is to make sure that only people who have spent 30 years in the service and those who were involved in any kind of fraud are affected. This is not witch hunting, it is a way of cleaning up the civil service and providing opportunities for the new and fresh bloods who have the zeal and passion to work”.

The source, an assistant director in the office of the Head of Service, also said the inability of the office of the Auditor General for the Federation to issue queries to erring ministries and agencies of government involved in sharp practices has become responsible for the kind of impunity in the civil service.

‎Warri refinery back-up workers petition Buhari over welfare, work condition
June 9, 2015




By Kunle Kalejaye


WARRI-Back-up workers in Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company have written a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene ‎in their current work condition stating that management of the company owns them eight months salaries.




Refinery

In a petition letter to President Buhari signed by Citizen Mike Eromosele,‎the back-up workers said in the course of asking for their salaries and better working condition from the management of WRPC, they are face with harassment and threats as a result of asking adding that lack of union or management to stand for them has worsen their plight.


“As we write you now sir, some of our colleague have been sacked while others are told to forfeit the eight months salaries because NNPC is owing the Federal Government some money.


“The Management of WRPC has introduced what is called slash of salaries and allowance to all Back-up staff without due consultation from or with the back-up to give a consideration on their welfare.


“They also put a cut down (slash) of 25 percent reduction of the backup worker’s stipend without putting into consideration the after effect of it on the well being of the back-up staff.


“For instance, a graduate that is receiving as low as N35,000 as his monthly stipend will be going home with N26,250 as his salary whenever the management decide to pay.


“They claim of not having funds to meet up with our salaries, but we keep seeing the arrivals of new cars for their personal use. We also notice that on daily basis they keep making employment when they cannot pay those of us working here for the past years.


“Because they have engaged themselves in projects that are not profitable making, they constantly carryout capital project with amount of money that are of no benefit to the production process, but which are of personal interest to them, where are they can get their percentages.


“Sir, some of the backup staff in WRPC are graduates with degrees and master in our various fields of learning. Some also are professional skill workers in our technical area of study. Some of us have worked in this organisation for the past six to ten years without knowing our faith in life,” part of the petition reads.


The petition added that the back-up workers were made to‎ pay for pension scheme and National Health Insurance every month from the little stipend given to them alleging that some group of management staff converts this money into their pocket for personal use while living them at the mercy of death.


The petition continues: “It may interest you to know that the working condition is very poor, that we are forced to undertake a given task without the necessary Personal Protective Equipment, (PPE).


“Wehave worked for six years in this company without safety protective equipment and when we ask, we are either sacked or given a query letter for asking the right equipment for the job.


“Sir, we also wish to inform you that some of us are from the host communities, we are faced with daily risk and hazards as a results of the operation of WRPC which the management has in no time given consideration on our health of our children even the once unborn.


“Some of our colleague died on th job as a result of the poor operation system, yet no grants are given to their family members because they see us a third parties.


“We want you sir, to look into these issue with great concern and kind heart so that these salaries owned us will paid and improved upon and allowance be given to us.”

OK they need to go for us to inject new blood into the system but please someone should ask PMB why didn't he give way since 2003 for a new blood to steer the affairs of Nigeria.

APC and CPC had fresh bloods yet he clung to the partys' tickets like his life depended on them.undecided

It is a welcome development bt they must be careful in given them forceful retirement because I guess in civil service, its 35years in service dat is stipulated for retirement, so if not properly handle, d people involve can drag FG to court

Lol! What a contradiction! Buhari who could not allow fresh blood as a president of Nigeria is complaining for civil servants that are his mates.

LOOOL! Buhari's old blood must be a special one. Okay! Femi Adesina called him old wine in a new bottle!! I see.

Lie lie news,the terms of service of a public servant as contained in the public service is clear,35 years in service or 60 years of age before retirement. This ACT must be reviewed first before this can happen. I tire for journalist these days. De wake up n spew ignorance in d public.

APC have come again o. A source said...Where is the memo? Where is the Presidential directive?



Are they aware that you can't just sack Civil servants that aren't up to the mandatory retirement age or service length? Have they heard of "compensation" and lawsuit before? Do Buhari think that NLC are just for tea-party? Do they think that they can fire anybody with corruption allegation without first obtaining indictment/conviction in line with the civil service rule? Do they think the National Industrial Court is thre to occupy space?

Hmm! This will hit a lot of pple hard, but it will also help create jobs for hundreds of thousands, if not millions of young Nigerian. The prediency should just make sure the pple to be retired get good settlement and pension. Anyway,if you have problem lasting long in bed, hit me up on BBM- 7C22F6EC.

Good move by the president. What do we stand to gain from this move?
1. Employment opportunities for young people
2. Due to their physical strength and up-to-date knowledge of happenings around the world, the newly employed ones are likely going to increase productivity of their various ministries.
