Uduaghan suspends CSC chief, members
DELTA State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has suspended the chairman and members of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) over “gross mismanagement” of the recent recruitment exercise into the state’s civil service. Also, an administrative panel of inquiry has been set up to review the exercise.
In a statement yesterday in Asaba, the Secretary to the State Government, Comrade Ovuozorie Macaulay, said the suspension became necessary as “the recruitment exercise, which was to address some vacancies in the service and respond to the employment needs of the state, has however been abused and ridiculously mismanaged by the Civil Service Commission.
“More embarrassing is the allegation of gross misconduct, abuse of office and fraud involving the sale of employment on account of which some members of the commission are presently undergoing interrogation by the security agencies.”
Ovuzorie explained that the suspension of the chairman and members of the CSC was to sanitise the exercise and pave way for an administrative panel, which has been set up to review the exercise.
