The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has ordered four directors to proceed on retirement.
In a statement yesterday, the National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee of the Commission, Sam Olumekun, said the decision is necessitated by a circular on the eight-year tenure policy for directors in the public service as ordered by the Federal Government in July.
Without naming the affected directors, he said two of them serve as Heads of Departments at the National Headquarters, while the other two are deployed as Administrative Secretaries in INEC’s State offices.
He added that Clinical Officers in the medical cadre are exempt from the policy, as clarified in Circular MH. 7205/T/31 dated September 7, 2023.
