Written by COMFORT 95.1FM on March 4, 2021
Federal Civil Service Commission, FCSC, says there is no recruitment into the federal civil service yet.
Chairman of the commission, Tukur lngawa, stressed that the ban on employment was still in effect until the Head of Service of the Federation, HOSF, lifts it.
Deputy Director of Press in the FCSC office, Eniola Babaoye, in a statement yesterday said his immediate commitment was to discharge the mandates of the core values of Nigeria’s civil service.
The chairman noted that the FCSC had adhered strictly to extant rules and regulations since he assumed office.
The Commission recalled that the HOSF forwarded a letter on May 15, 2020, on the general suspension of recruitments into the Public Service by President Muhammadu Buhari due to the effect of COVID-19 on the federal government’s revenue projections.
