The retirement of the Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori and over 150 senior management staff members of the parliament has triggered crisis.
The Punch reports that, the retirement of Sani-Omolori and others was announced by the National Assembly Service Commission on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the National Assembly Clerk, however, dismissed that retirement as illegal.
In a statement which was titled: ‘The National Assembly Service Commission Approves the Retirement Age for the Staff of the National Assembly as 35 Years of Service or 60 Years of Age, Whichever Comes First’, was what the Chairman of the NASC, Ahmed Amshi, had announced as retirement.
In another statement which was different from the first one, Sani-Omolori, however, in another statement said:
“The management of the National Assembly wishes to inform all staff and the general public that the extant regulation as contained in our Revised Conditions of Service duly passed by both chambers of the 8th National Assembly puts the retirement age of staff at 40 years of service and 65 years of age, whichever comes first.”
