In what many observers have termed a step in the right direction, the Office of the Accountant, CRS, last week effected the re-deployment of close to 250 account staff on Grade Level 9-15 in the CRS civil service, in a move it described as routine and designed to reinvigorate the CRS civil service.
Calitown.com sources say as a follow up to the re-deployments, the Accountant-General of the state, Henry Ojogu, may have okayed the seizure of salary of any staff or groups of staff who fail to resume at their new postings. “Most if not all civil servants know that re-deployment is a normal procedure but those who have made certain offices their comfort zones are often the ones who run around trying to bend the rules”, is how one source described the attendant pressure by some re-deployed staff to stay put. The pressure is being mounted on the A-G by some top civil servants in the state, eager to have their acolytes retain their current postings and sources say the A-G is not making things easy with even his refusal to take calls that pertain to the redeployments.
