IMO: Directors of MDAs to take exam before promotion to Perm Secs — Uzodinma

GOVERNOR Hope Uzodinma has said that directors in the state civil service will, henceforth, take examination before being promoted to become permanent secretaries.

Uzodinma announced this during the commemoration of his first anniversary in office which took place in Owerri.

Explaining why the examination is necessary, the governor said appointing  directors automatically as acting permanent  secretaries in the state ministries, departments and agencies was a violation of the civil service rule.

He noted that automatic elevation would no longer be tolerated by his administration as hurdles must be scaled by potential permanent secretaries to prove their competence.

Uzodimma, also,  decried the rot going on in the state civil service allegedly being perpetrated by some corrupt civil servants, which had resulted in the ‘ghost’ workers syndrome, collection of double salaries, and bloated wage bill for pensioners in the state.

He challenged pensioners still crying over non-payment of their monthly stipends to come up with credible records at their disposal for verification and rectification.

Uzodimma reiterated his resolution to recover all public property looted by past administrations in the state irrespective of the positions of the looters in the society.

He also decried the outbreak of violence and the destruction of lives and properties in some part of the South-East arising from the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra’s Eastern Security Network led by Nnamdi Kanu, saying the ESN, which was the brainchild of the governors of the region was later hijacked by IPOB to cause trouble in the zone.

He sued “for partnership and synergy between journalists in the state and his administration for stronger and effective dissemination of the policies and programs of his Shared Prosperity agenda.”
