Ten­ure pol­icy sus­pended, not an­nulled – Oyo-Ita

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The Head of Ser­vice of the Fed­er­a­tion, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, yes­ter­day de­nied re­ports that the ten­ure pol­icy of the fed­eral civil ser­vice had been an­nulled, say­ing govern­ment only sus­pended the pol­icy.

The Direc­tor Com­mu­ni­ca­tion in her of­fice, Haruna Im­rana Yazid, while re­act­ing to yes­ter­day’s Daily Trust re­port, said it was wrong to say that there was ‘no go­ing back on ten­ure pol­icy re­ver­sal’.

“The con­tent of the let­ter that you re­ferred to in your re­port is clear. It said:‘The cur­rent state of af­fairs of the ten­ure pol­icy is that it is sus­pended as per the cir­cu­lar dated 20th June 2016’. This did not in any way say there was not go­ing back,” Yazid said.

He said a core essence of govern­ment was to see to the wel­fare of cit­i­zens, in­clud­ing civil ser­vants, and re­view­ing poli­cies at im­prov­ing the sit­u­a­tion means what is be­ing re­viewed can be re­tained or bet­ter al­ter­na­tives can be evolved.
