FG To Retire Over 1000 Civil Servants

The federal government says it would retire 1,050 workers over the next three weeks from the federal civil service.

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, HOCSF, Bukar Aji, made this known in Abuja at the 60th anniversary celebration of the Nigeria Public Service Commission.

He said the 1,050 civil servants are made up of persons who ought to have retired but have somehow managed to remain in the service illegally.



    Aji said that they were discovered during the screening done by Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, and would be shown the way out before the end of April.

    “Through the IPPIS, we are able to screen those who are supposed to have retired long time ago and they will leave the service within the next two to three weeks,” he said.

    The head of the service said that their leave would create opportunities for those in legitimate service to be promoted.

    He assured that the Federal Civil Service would be better in 2014, adding that he would not relent in efforts to improve the service.
