Due to reports of an illegal recruitment exercise, the federal government has gone ahead to dismiss five directors at the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD).
The five directors were reportedly appointed during the administration of Goodluck Jonathan
The directors were sacked with immediate effect while some other staff of the parastatal in charge of Nigeria’s pension were redeployed to the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation (OAGF).
It was learnt that the directors were actually appointed against civil service rule and were found guilty of employment irregularities after investigation.
One of the rules under which they were sacked, according to reports, is that they were above 50 years old as against the public service rules.
