Fresh reports have emerged stating the dismissal of Alhaji Mohammed Sani-Omolori. Clerk to the National Assembly (CNA) and 149 persons by the National Assembly (NASS) Commission.
In recent times, there has been dispute over the elongation of tenure of the CNA who many have recommended for retirement after spending 35 years in service.
It was alleged that the 8th National Assembly secretly passed a bill elongating tenure of civil servants from 35 years to 40 years in service while retirement age was extended from 60 – 65 years.
However, Sani-Omolori’s position as CNA has been a source of worry to concerned civil servants and Representatives who believe the Clerk ought to be retired like his counterparts who joined the service in 1985.
Sani-Omolori who was born on 21 June 1961, joined the civil service in 1985, where he worked as a Legal Officer of the Ajaokuta Steel Company in 1985 before proceeding to the National Electric Power Authority in 1989.
According to Vanguard, Alhaji Mohammed began working at the National Assembly as a Grade Level 12 Principal Legal Officer 1 in 1991.
However, it appears the controversy has been laid to rest with the termination of the clerk’s appointment and 149 persons who have attained the legal age of retirement.
