The National Assembly Service Commission, on Thursday, queried the embattled Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, for “gross insubordination to a constituted authority”.
The commission had, on Wednesday, asked the clerk and 150 other management staff to proceed on retirement having reached the retirement period of 35 years of service.

But Sani-Omolori dismissed the directive, citing the revised Conditions of Service which raised retirement period to 40 years in service, and the retirement age to 65 years.
He had said the commission lacks the powers to set aside the Revised Conditions of Service as passed by the 8th National Assembly.
The Executive Chairman of the Commission, Ahmed Kadi Amshi, in a query to Sani-Omolori, said the clerk had no authority to dictate anything to it as an employee.
He said the clerk’s press release was considered by the commission as gross insubordination to a constituted authority.
He gave Sani-Omolori 24 hours to explain to the commission why disciplinary action would not be taken against him.
