Ahead of last minutes plans by the President Muhammadu Buhari led to trim ministries departments and agencies(MDAs) to manageable size, and further role out his ministers and assign them portfolios, a fresh revealation has emerged yesterday that some permanent secretaries may be on their way to compulsory retirement, especially those who was a close associate to the ministers who served under the immediate past administration.
A highly dependable source who will not want to be mentioned on the printer, said: “The main reason why they would be sack or ask to proceed to compulsory retirement is simple because they are the arrow head with the then ministers who stole monies belonging to the government for the past presidential campaign of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
And another area the government is looking at is reduction of permanent secretaries by 50 per cent atlist out of the 42 permanent secretaries and if the MDAs are merged, about 20 will have to proceed on retirement.
Some of the ministries that will suffer it includes: the ministry of works, FCT, Transport, finance, foreign affairs, aviation, interior and others.”
