Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has suspended the ongoing recruitment exercise into the state Civil Service.

Sen. Okowa, who was sworn-in as governor on Friday, said yesterday that the suspension was sequel to the flawed process which was fraught with sharp practices and could not be adjudged to be credible.

He said in a statement signed by the state Head of Service, Mr. Patrick Origho: “It is public knowledge that the process was fraught with sharp practices ranging from abuse of office to sale of job slots and therefore cannot by any stretch of imagination be adjudged credible. No flawed process produces a credible exercise.”

According to the statement, “This abysmal handling of the exercise culminated in the suspension of the chairman and members of the Commission and the setting of an Administrative Panel to review the recruitment process.”

Governor Okowa appealed to Deltans for support and understanding on the suspension of the exercise, assuring that “action will be taken to study the report of the Administrative Panel at the appropriate time with a view to strengthening the Delta State Civil Service Commission and ensuring transparent recruitment process.”

News Express reports that by this suspension, all persons who have been given “the sold appointment letters’ are expected to vacate wherever they have been posted to until the panel of inquiry set up to look into the exercise submits its findings.
