Sat, 04 Nov 2017
Fresh crisis is brewing in the Federal Civil Service few days after the reinstatement saga of the former Chairman of defunct Pension Reform Committee, Abdulrahman Maina, as over 370 aggrieved deputy directors who have been denied promotion to the director cadre for three years by the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC) are now spoiling for a fight with the federal government. The inability of the affected deputy directors to write the promotion examination to enable them attain the post of substantive directors is causing unease and tension in the federal civil service. The current imbroglio that threatens to become a full blown crisis is the perceived inability of officers in the deputy director cadre to sit for their promotion examinations because of a lingering dispute that has arisen following complaints of irregularities in the conduct of the promotion examination conducted for deputy directors (administration) in 2014 by the FCSC. The bad blood within the federal civil service has arisen mostly because the affected deputy directors (administration) due for promotion to the director cadre have remained stagnant on the same position based on an order of the National Industrial Court restraining the FCSC from conducting promotion examination for deputy directors. The affected civil servants under the aegis of the Concerned Deputy Directors (2011, 2012 and 2013) in a petition to the House of Representatives Committee on Public Service Matters, a copy which was obtained by our correspondent, are therefore seeking the intervention of the House in resolving the pending dispute and ensure that the civil service commission is unencumbered to conduct the promotion examination. In the petition dated May 19, 2017, the concerned deputy directors described the restraining order granted by the National Industrial Court and obtained by those who sat for the director (administration) promotion examination in 2014 as been in “bad faith.” A copy of the petition was obtained by our correspondent in Abuja on Thursday. According to the deputy directors, by obtaining the order, the litigants have succeeded in stalling the promotion of officers due to sit for the director (administration) cadre examination for the past three years.
