The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Folasade Yemi-Esan, Wednesday revealed that she received telephone calls from highly placed persons, including governors and traditional leaders, to influence the appointment of permanent secretaries.

She said she resisted the pressure and allowed due process that led to the emergence of the best from each state where such vacancies existed.

She spoke in Abuja yesterday at a roundtable with media executives and journalists as part of the 2022 Civil Service Week Celebration.

She said: “If the service is going digital, why should permanent secretaries who are the drivers of the digitalization process not take computer test? This is our argument.

“As part of the reform initiatives by this administration, permanent secretaries who are not computer literate cannot be expected to improve on service delivery.”

She said her office received reports from the Federal Civil Service Commission to sack about 3,000 workers discovered to be parading fake employment letters.

Yemi-Esan said the government continued to clean up the system and flush out ghost workers and others with fake documents.

The Head of Service dismissed reports that the process of appointing permanent secretaries was fraught with corruption.

Permanent Secretary, General Services Office, Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Maurice Mbaeri, who spoke on the much-awaited Steve Oronsaye-led committee’s report on public service reforms said the committees set up to review the report and make recommendations to the government would submit them soon.

The Oronsaye-led committee’s report was submitted in 2011 with a recommendation for a reduction of 263 statutory agencies to 161.
