50 Directors Fail Perm Secs’ Exam, 41 Make Final List by Islie: 6:04am On Jun 07, 2020
The Federal Government has shortlisted 41 directors for the final round of examination towards becoming permanent secretaries in the civil service.

The 41 directors emerged from the 91 candidates who sat an Information Communication Technology proficiency test on Thursday in Abuja.

This means 50 senior government officials who sat examination did not succeed.

Our correspondent on Saturday obtained a copy of the memo announcing the 41 successful candidates.

The memo dated June 6, 2020 was signed by the Director Overseeing the Office of the Permanent Secretary, I. A. Mairiga, on behalf of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan.

Mairiga noted that the 41 successful candidates would now take part in the final examination which is an oral interview slated for Monday.

The memo marked “HCSF/CMO/AOD/012/VOL. VI/42 read, “Following the conduct of the ICT proficiency test for the appointment of permanent secretaries in the federal civil service on June 4, 2020, I am directed to invite the following 41 shortlisted candidates to the oral interview/interactive session.

“Accordingly, the candidates are to report for the interview on Monday, June 8, 2020 at the Olusegun Obasanjo Hall, Federal Secretariat Complex, Phase II, Abuja by 8am prompt.”

Only 16 out of the 41 final candidates are expected to become permanent secretaries.

Yemi-Esan had in an earlier circular issued in March indicated that examinations would be conducted to appoint 16 new permanent secretaries.

She had said 14 of the new permanent secretaries are meant to replace existing ones that are billed to retire this year, while the remaining two are meant to fill existing vacancies.

According to the March 23 circular, the 14 states with permanent secretaries that will retire this year are Kebbi, Kwara, Abia, Anambra, Cross River, Kaduna, Kano, Oyo, Rivers, Sokoto, Adamawa, Yobe, Gombe and Jigawa.


The two states with existing vacancies are Zamfara and Kogi.

Yemi-Esan had reiterated that only officers in the mainstream of the federal civil service who attained the substantive rank of director on Salary Grade Level 17 on or before January 1, 2018 and who have updated their records on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System verification portal are eligible to sit for the examinations.

She added that to be eligible, such officials must hail from Abia, Adamawa, Anambra, Cross River, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Kebbi, Kogi, Kwara, Oyo, Rivers, Sokoto, Yobe and Zamfara States and should not be retiring from service earlier than on December 31, 2021.

She wrote, “Accordingly, the following officers shall not be accredited: directors that did not update their online records on the IPPIS verification portal (from April 5, 2017 up until it closed on May 23, 2018).

“Those that shall not be accredited also include serving directors retiring earlier than or on December 31, 2021; serving directors promoted in the last one year (2019); and directors undergoing disciplinary procedure.”

The last time permanent secretaries were appointed was in December 2019 when the Federal Government approved the appointment of nine new permanent secretaries.

Those appointed then were Musa Hassan from Borno State; Ahmed Aliyu from Niger State; Olushola Idowu from Ogun State; Andrew Adejoh representing the North–Central zone; Umar Tijjani representing the North–East zone; Nasir Gwarzo from the North–West zone; Nebeolisa Anako representing the South–East zone; Fashedemi Peter representing the South–West zone; and Evelyn Ngige from the South–South zone of Nigeria.

The nine permanent secretaries were picked from the 48 directors who participated in the final stage of the selection process.

The 48 senior officials had earlier emerged successful among the 87 candidates who sat for the second set of examination for applicants.

Too bad...most of the questions are very simple. Some of them will be blaming their wives and kids for their failure.

Is it not Nigeria again? Even those who set the exam questions, if given exams to write, may not pass. U will be ashamed if u are made to go through most of the files of these so called 'big men' in the civil service. For most of them, their only qualification could even be a secretarial study course, that have pushed them to becoming directors. Some can't even send text messages on their own, talkless of being able to check emails or print confidential documents, but they are heading to become permanent secretaries after which they will sew big babariga and go for thanksgiving should they succeed. Meanwhile, the exam questions may have been some very simple MCQs which one can use residual knowledge to pass, but these quota system directors cannot pass. These are the type of dumb bosses we have in government offices, and they are always the first to shout 'get out of my office' at any given opportunity, yet most of the current crop of unemployed youths are more qualified and certified than them

It is called education because it is learned. You do not have to have had an experience in order to sympathize or empathize with the subject. That is why books are written: so that we do not have to do the same things. We learn from experience, true; but we also learn from empathy

Not true, permanent secretaries has a special way of selection, it is selected based on your state of origin, i.e when there is a vacancy from a state then automatically a new permanent secretary will be selected from that state, an Ekiti man cannot take the slot of Ondo same with other states.
