Civil servants who have served up to 30 years may have to leave the service before the end of 2015, this is to pave way for fresh bloods into the system as a way of ensuring maximal output and restructuring of the civil service.
A memo to that effect has been raised by the head of service to all permanent secretaries as well as heads of agencies and parastatals of the federal government for compliance.
This is in line with the directive of the Presidency that all civil servants who have put in 30 years and above may have outlived their usefulness in the service, hence the need to restructure and inject fresh blood into the system.
The Presidency had expressed concerns over the rate of corruption in the civil service, and resolved that the best way to stamp out or reduce corruption that has become the order of the day in the civil service would be to overhaul the entire system.
