It is eclipse for the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori as the leadershipof the national Assembly has directed him and about 160 others to proceed on retirement leave with immediate effect.
Recall that ALSC had on Monday reported that Omolori’s was supposed to have retired on February 6 this year having exhausted his 35-year service in the civil service but was illegally hanging on to power and instigating crisis in the system through a controversial “Revised Conditions of Service for legislative workers” which criminally adjusted retirement from 60 years on the basis of age to 65 and years of service from 35 to 40
We also reported that reliable source at the national assembly told us that the crisis will end this week as a meeting would be held to boot Omolori and the 160 others out of service before Friday.
Pls check our story on this.
