Yemi Esan

About 512 directors in the civil service who have spent eight years on the directorate cadre may be on their way out of the civil service dur to the implementation of the newly revised Public Service Rules, 2021, by the Federal Government.

The PSR, which takes effect from July 27, 2023, was launched by the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation on July 28, 2023, in Abuja comes with a tenure policy for permanent secretaries who are now required to spend four years in office which is renewable subject to performance.

The new rule is expected to affect as many as 512 directors who have stagnated on their position for eight years or more.

The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Folashade Yemi-Esan, while unveiling the revised public service rules during the civil service rule last week, noted that the implementation would commence immediately.

She stated that the rules were revised under the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari but the launching was delayed until President Bola Tinubu took over in line with the ‘renewed hope’ agenda.

Already, the policy is generating tension and agitation in the civil service as some directors who spoke to our correspondents in confidence noted that a memo by the OHCSF had been sent to Ministries, Departments and Agencies to ensure compliance with the newly revised rules.
