Abia to review civil service promotions from 2007

A committee was established by the Abia State Government to examine command promotions made in the state’s civil service since 2007.

Adaeze Ralph Igbokwe, the office of the Abia State Head of Service’s director of information, informed DAILY POST in Umuahia of this in a press release.

The Committee was also given the following terms of reference: to review the procedures for hiring, promoting, and terminating employees; to assess the current Civil Service structure; to offer solutions for pension issues; and to ensure punctuality and general discipline.

Governor Alex Otti introduced the committee in Umuahia and emphasized the importance of the civil service in carrying out government goals and initiatives.

He instructed them to carry out their responsibilities in accordance with the goals and aims of

Otti, who addressed through Prof. Kenneth Kalu, Secretary to the State Government, insisted that the committee’s formation was not done to “witch-hunt” someone, but rather to provide a positive, proactive service for the State’s overall growth and the welfare of its citizens.

The committee’s independence was also made crystal apparent by the governor.

But he asked that it collaborate with the Office of the Head of Service to carry out the government’s agenda.

Additionally, the Head of Service, Lady Joy Maduka, promised the full support of her office, notably by way of relevant information, in order for them to complete the task at hand on time.

In response, the Co-Chairman, Dr. Chibueze Ukaegbu, thanked the Governor for recognizing their suitability to serve the State in that role and hoped they would live up to the trust placed in them.

Some federal officials who claimed they were either fired from the service or disengaged during the review period applauded the committee’s establishment.

But research by the Daily Post also indicated that the committee might possibly look into examples of those who may have “leapfrogged” to promotion.
