Okowa Suspends Civil Service Recruitment Exercise
Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has suspended the ongoing recruitment exercise into the state’s Civil Service.
Okowa said the suspension was sequel to the flawed process, which was fraught with sharp practices and could not be adjudged to be credible.
In a statement signed by the Head of Service, Mr Patrick Origho, Governor Okowa said “ it is public knowledge that the process was fraught with sharp practices, ranging from abuse of office to sale of jobs slots and therefore cannot by any stretch of imagination be adjudged credible.
According to the Governor, “no flawed process produces a credible exercise”.
Continuing, he said: “the abysmal handling of the exercise culminated in the suspension of the chairman and members of the Commission and the setting of the an Administrative Panel to review the recruitment process”.
He, therefore, appealed to Deltans to support and show understanding over the suspension of the exercise, as he assured them that action would be taken to “study the report of the Administrative Panel at the appropriate time with a view to strengthening the Delta State Civil Service Commission and ensuring transparent recruitment process”.
