Oyo Government Absolves 730 Workers into Civil Service



Oyo Recruits

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

No fewer than 730 workers have been absolved into the Oyo State civil service following the approval of the state governor, Mr Seyi Makinde.

This was confirmed by the Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr Wasiu Olatubosun, in a statement signed on Friday.

The Commissioner disclosed that the conversion of the new civil servants was contained in a circular issued by the Chairman of the Civil Service Commission, Oyo State, Mr Kamoru Abíọ́dún Adéríbigbé.

According to hi, the conversion process, which cuts across 92 cadres, is the first of its kind in the history of the state.

Among the various cadres of the converted officers are the Administrative Officers, Accountants, Registrars of Cooperatives, Executive Officers, Nursing Officers, Agricultural Officers, Trade Officers, Statisticians, Engineers, Veterinary Officers, Geologists, Program Analysts, Scientific Officers, Social Welfare Officers, Store Officers and Land Officers, among others.

Earlier, the Civil Service Commission screened officers, through weeding tests for some workers and oral interviews across all Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the state.

“As usual, the conversion was in line with the template of merit and competence introduced by Governor Seyi Makinde FNSE, and considering the existing vacancy disposition for each of the cadres,” Mr Aderibigbe said.

The Chairman described the conversion as the Governor’s third-anniversary gift to beneficiaries and admonished them to reciprocate the kind gesture of the state government by discharging their duties diligently.

According to him, “This exercise can be likened to new recruitments that would not only enhance the status of the officers but also elongate the terminal levels of some of the beneficiaries beyond their present respective grade levels.”

Mr Aderibigbe, therefore, thanked Governor Makinde for putting smiles on the faces of workers, pensioners and the entire people of Oyo State.

ECOWAS TPO Network is a public-sector led entity and will work in partnership with the ECOWAS commission to drive inclusive trade development initiatives within West Africa and beyond.

The body is part of steps towards building mutual trust and cooperation without borders within the ECOWAS region. As of today, intra-Africa exports only account for about 16 per cent of Africa’s global export, and more specifically intra-ECOWAS trade only accounts for a tenth of ECOWAS countries’ global trade.

FG Names Anamekwe Nwabuoku as Acting Accountant General



Anamekwe Nwabuoku

By Aduragbemi Omiyale

Mr Anamekwe Nwabuoku has been appointed by the federal government as the acting Accountant General of the Federation (AGF).

The appointment of Mr Nwabuoku followed the suspension of Mr Ahmed Idris from office after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arrested him over an alleged N80 billion.

Last Monday, the anti-graft agency apprehended Mr Idris after his failure to honour an invitation extended to him over the matter.

He was taken into the EFCC custody to answer questions about the alleged fraud and to ensure an “unhindered investigation,” the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, asked him to step aside.

This action led to the postponement of the monthly Federal Account Allocation Committee (FAAC) last week as the embattled AGF leads the gathering.

In order not to create a vacuum, the federal government has asked Mr Nwabuoku to head the office in an acting capacity pending the outcome of the probe into the fraud allegation against Mr Idris.

His appointment was confirmed in a letter dated Friday, May 20, 2022, and signed by the Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mr Aliyu Ahmed.

According to the notice, the acting AGF is expected to carry out his duties in strict compliance with extant rules and observe the highest sense of professionalism.
