In what seems like a shake-up in the federal civil service, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the immediate deployment of nine federal permanent secretaries.
Vanguard reports that this was contained in a circular issued by the head of the civil service of the federation, Folasade Yemi-Esan, and made available to journalists in Abuja on Thursday, December 24.
Legit.ng gathered that by the new deployment, Musa Mikfuktur Istifanus, was moved from the ministry of communications and digital economy to the ministry of Defence.
The report said that others included Ernest Afolabi Umakhihe (works and housing), Nebolisa Anako (information and culture), Festus Yusuf Narai Daudu (Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation) and Babangida Hussaini (defence) who was moved over to the ministries of agriculture and rural development.
Anthonia Akpabio Ekpa from the Office of the Head of Service was moved to women affairs; James Sule who is joining the cabinet affairs office, the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, from the office of the Head of Service as well as Adaora Ifeoma Anyanwutaku who joined the information and culture ministry from the ministry of women affairs.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the federal government has said that no fewer than 428 agencies would not be able to pay salaries by the end of November.
It was reported that this was disclosed by the director-general of the budget office, Ben Akabueze, on Tuesday, November 10, when he appeared before the Senate committee on the public account.
The presidential aide noted that the government was considering releasing funds from the Service Wide Vote to cater for the shortfall in the civil servants' salaries for the month of November.
In another report, following reports of insufficient records on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), the federal government has threatened to stop the salaries of 720 civil servants.
This was contained in a circular titled: ‘Suspension of the salary of employees with insufficient IPPIS Human Resource records’ and dated Wednesday, October 28.
The affected civil servants were given between Friday, October 30, and Sunday, November 8, to perfect their records on the government’s centralised payroll system or risk having their salaries suspended immediately.
