Enugu government set to clear promotion backlog for civil servants
In furtherance of his administration’s commitment to the welfare of civil servants of Enugu State, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi recently granted approval to the Enugu State Civil Service Commission (ESCSC) to conduct promotion exercises for eligible staff members across the state’s Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
The promotion exercise is in fulfilment of Ugwuanyi’s promise to clear the backlog of promotions for civil servants in the state.
Over 3,000 state civil servants recently converged on Government Secondary School (GSS), Enugu, for their 2021/2022 promotional examinations.
Reacting to the development, the Chairman of ESCSC, Robinson Odo, said: “The agenda for the 2021/2022 promotion is to ensure that members of staff, who scaled through the exercise, are promoted without delay to enable them to have reasons to celebrate the yuletide as promoted officers.
“The just concluded promotional examination was in written form, and encompassed staff members on salary grade levels 07 and above, whose briefs had earlier been received by the Commission.”
“ESCSC has announced that the oral interview for the promotion exercise would hold from November 22 to 29, 2022, at the Commission’s premises at 9:00 a.m. daily.”
The Chairman disclosed that all hands have been on deck both at the Commission and the MDAs to ensure the promotion processes are successful.
