Civil service reform: FG to sack 50,000 workers
By Emma Ovuakporie
ABUJA—About 50,000 federal workers may be retrenched from service in the next three months in line with the on-going reform in the Federal Civil Service.
A source close to the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation revealed that machinery to achieve this purpose has been put in motion to collate the names of the workers that would be eventually laid off.
Those most likely to be purged, according to the source, are the workers in the executive cadre, which is made up of staff on level 17 and above and those who entered the service with Higher National Diploma, HND, who don’t get promoted beyond level 14.
