150 Deputy Directors In Nigeria’s Civil Service Fail Promotion Exams


In the Nigerian Civil Service full of unqualified people who found themselves inside and keep climbing up based of nepotism, clannishness and the so-called quota system, 150 federal civil service deputy directors who sat for promotion examinations to the position of directors failed the test.

This was made known by the Head of Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, at a quarterly meeting with organised labour, conducted by her office in Abuja, on Wednesday.

A total of 290 deputy director had sat for the test.

Mrs. Oyo-Ita said, “over 290 deputy directors sat for the examination out of which only about 140 were successful. I am certain that going forward, the civil service will ventilate itself and officers will be rewarded for hard work.

“With this, we now have a solution to the issue of dearth of Directors of Administration in MDAs. Departments which were hitherto manned by officers in acting capacity would now be manned by substantive Directors.”
