The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has approved the retirement of four directors in the commission.

Mr Sam Olumekun, National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee of the commission, said this on Wednesday in Abuja in a statement.

The development follows the implementation of the eight-year tenure policy for directors by the federal government.

“Following the Federal Government Circular HSCF/SPSO/268/T3/2/37 issued on 27 July 2023, the commission has approved the implementation of a policy mandating all Directors with eight years or more of service to retire from the public sector.

“As per this directive, four directors of the commission will proceed on terminal leave. Two of them serve as Heads of Departments at the National Headquarters, while the other two are deployed as Administrative Secretaries in our state offices,” Olumekun said.

He, however, noted that clinical officers in the medical cadre were exempt from this policy, as clarified in Circular MH. 7205/T/31 dated September 7, 2023.

“The commission wishes the affected directors the best as they retire from service,” Olumekun said.
