Twenty-one directors on Salary Grade Level 17 in the Federal Civil Service who sat a written examination as part of the process of appointing them as permanent secretaries failed the examination, The PUNCH has learnt.

The 21 directors were among 46 senior officers who took the examination in Abuja on Monday.

The remaining 25 of them, who passed the examination, are now qualified for the next stage, which is the Information Communication Technology proficiency test holding on Thursday (today).

Although the Federal Government had in May announced the shortlisting of 47 directors for the examination among the 51 candidates who earlier faced a panel, results of only 46 directors were seen on the list of the result obtained by our correspondent on Wednesday.

The document, titled ‘Re; Selection exercise for the appointment of permanent secretaries in the federal civil service,’ was dated June 1, 2021, and signed by Sunny Echocho on behalf of the examination committee.

Our correspondent reported that the 25 directors who passed the written examination and were invited for the next stage were those who scored 50 and above in the examination.

The 21 directors who failed the examination were those who scored below 50. A candidate with 33.5 was the director with the lowest score in the examination.

The director with 68.5 was the candidate with the highest score.
Names of the officials were, however, not indicated on the document.

The candidates were identified by their service numbers.

Those who pass the ICT test on Thursday will qualify for the last stage, which is an interactive session with a broad-based panel of experts and practitioners.

The candidates are competing to fill the vacancies of retired permanent secretaries and those retiring this year in five states of the federation.

The affected states are Ekiti, Katsina, Nasarawa, Enugu and Lagos.

Hmmm...I don't understand why they need to write an exam for promotion. If they are not capable, don't promote them. There are all year metrics on their performance with which they could be judged.

Who marks the exam?


There is nothing wrong in falling an exam, cos falling is part of life.
There is also nothing wrong in passing an exam, cos passing is part of life.

But there is everything wrong when your mate are moving forward and left u behind.I wonder what those who failed the exam will tell their children and other family members. Hope they won't blame the computer like Bola146 did when she failed her JAMB exams.

Hope those that failed the exam are not among the parents that keep telling their children that they always take first position from primary to secondary level, cos if they are their children will know the truth now.

Well I am more interested on how Buhari was able to pass all his promotional exam from 2nd lieutenant to Major General.

Both them and the people they want to replace are worthless to Nigeria

If not, Nigeria would at least working small

Same people who should serve as shock absorbers to us from people like Buhari are as corrupt as Buhari

They just failed in their attempt to join the looters club.
