The Head of Service Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan has said that the extension of service for any officer in public service has not been approved by the federal government.
This was revealed in a statement shared on the website of the Office of the Head of Service on Monday, July 20.
Dr. Yemi-Esan stated this in reaction to reports circulating on social media that the Office of the HoS issued a circular to that effect.
According to the statement, the civil service head refuted the reports, saying the office did not release any circular on the subject matter.
The statement stressed that members of the public should disregard the circular as the content is fake, incorrect, and did not originate from the Head of Service.
The statement read in part: "The letterhead used for the circular “roll-over service for those due to retire within the COVID-19 era dated July 13, 2020 is not of the OHSF."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that President Muhammadu Buhari approved the appointment of 12 new permanent secretaries in the federal civil service.

Also, amid the increase in the spread of COVID-19 cases, Dr. Yemi-Esan criticized civil servants over the level of their non-compliance with directives on measures against the pandemic in government offices.
The office of HoSF noted that workers are not adhering to the advice in order to curb the spread of the disease.
The office added that these include government workers who should not be going to the offices and not keeping to the number of visitors to the barest minimum.
