Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has granted approval to the Enugu State Civil Service Commission (ESCSC) to conduct promotion exercise for eligible staff across the state’s ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs).
The promotion exercise was in fulfillment of Governor Ugwuanyi’s earlier promise to clear all backlogs of promotions for civil servants in the state.
Our correspodent reports that over 3,000 state civil servants last weekend converged on the Government Secondary School (GSS), Enugu, for their 2021/2022 promotional examination.
The chairman of the ESCSC, Mr Robinson Odo, told newsmen that, “The agenda for the 2021/2022 promotion is to ensure that members of staff who scale through in the exercise are promoted without delay to enable them to celebrate the upcoming yuletide as promoted officers.
“The just concluded promotional examination was in written form, and encompassed staff on salary grade levels 07 and above, whose briefs had earlier been received by the commission.
“ESCSC has announced that the oral interview for the promotion exercise will hold from November 22 to 29, 2022, at the commission’s premises at 9am daily.”
The chairman said ‘all hands have been on deck both at the commission and the MDAs levels to ensure that the promotion processes are successful’.
