The federal government has fired five directors at the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) for what has been reported as illegal recruitment exercise.
The directors were sacked with immediate effect, according to the Abuja Facts.
We learnt that while the directors were sacked, other staff of the parastatal in charge of Nigeria’s pension were redeployed to the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation.
It was learnt that the directors were actually appointed against civil service rule and were found guilty of employment irregularities after investigation.
One of the rules under which they were sacked, according to reports, is that they were above 50 years old as against the public service rules.
According to findings, the affected directors were appointed during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
At the time of this report, the government was yet to confirm the sack of the directors.
Meanwhile, We recently reported the arraignment of some staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). Watch the video here:
