In the last couple of years, the Delta State Government has been pursuing the process of recruitment into the State Civil Service. Unfortunately, the 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 State Civil Service Commission. Most 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.
In order to sanitize the exercise, His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, has directed the suspension of the Chairman and Members of the Commission with immediate effect.
The Suspension is to pave way for an Administrative Panel to be constituted by the State Government to review the exercise.
Comrade Ovuozuorie Macaulay
Secretary to the State Government.
