The Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) on Thursday warned President Muhammadu Buhari against mischievous sycophants who had started to beat their war drums barely few days after being declared the winner of the 2019 election.
The ASCSN advised him to restore tenure policy in the civil service for Permanent Secretaries and Directors and reverse the practice of recruiting Permanent Secretaries from outside the civil service.
The organisation said that contrary to claims that the civil service was over bloated, the staff strength of the core civil service stood at 80,000.
The ASCSN described the individuals as failed experts who are bent on derailing his administration but pretending to wish him well.
The ASCSN in a statement by its Secretary-General, Alade Lawal, said some disgruntled elements masquerading as experts had started to urge President Buhari to descend on the civil service which they ignorantly claimed was over-bloated while simultaneously accusing civil servants of being corrupt without substantiating their allegations.
