Nigerian Government Urged To Check Partisan Politics In Civil Service
Written by Adewale Adeyemi on January 16, 2023
A one-time Head of Service in Kwara State, North Central Nigeria, Alhaji Mudi Adebayo Gold, has called on the Federal government to check the menace of partisan politics among civil servants who dance to the tune of politicians for monetary and other benefits.
He gave the advice during a chat with Voice of Nigeria (VON) where he urged public servants to be disciplined and contented in order to maintain the public confidence reposed in them.
Alhaji Gold observed that civil servants are not expected to be involved in partisan politics, saying that absolute loyalty and commitment should be the watchword of their service.
He wondered that some civil servants are neck deep in politics that they even go about to campaign with politicians at rallies which ordinarily is against the civil service rules and regulations.
