The Director of Information , Office of the Head of Service of the Federation , Olawunmi Ogunmosunle , on Monday said the Federal Government has not approved extension of service for any retiring officer in public service .
She asked Nigerians to disregard a circular said to be trending on the social media on the matter, describing it as a fake document.
Ogunmosunle made the clarification in a statement titled “ No extension of service for public service retirees ” which he made available to journalists in Abuja .
The statement read, “ The Head of Service , Dr . Folasade Yemi -Esan , has stated that the Federal Government has not approved extension of service for any officer in public service ; and the office did not issue any circular on the subject matter.
“ The statement became necessary in view of a fake circular purported to have emanated from the Office of Head of Service and being circulated in the social media .
“ Members of the public are to note that the content of the circular is fake , incorrect and did not originate from the Office of the Head of Service .
“ The letterhead used for the circular ‘ Roll -over service for those due to retire within the COVID -19 era in 2020 ” and dated July 13 , 2020 is not the letterhead of the OHSF, the outline of the entire circular , from the distribution list to arrangement of the sections including the grammar is completely out of sync with the way and manner circulars are issued in the office.
“ Furthermore , the Director Overseeing the Office of the Permanent Secretary , Career Management , Office of the Head of Service at no time issued or signed any such letter .”
Ogunmosunle further quoted Yemi -Esan as imploring public servants and members of the public to always visit her office’ s website to cross -check circulars and other information emanating from the office for authenticity.
“ Members of the public especially those in the health agencies are therefore called upon to note and disregard the content of the circular in order not to fall victims of its perpetrators , ” she conclud
