In clarifying the current misinformation in the public space, the Federal Government says it has not approved extension of Service for any officer in the public service due for retirement in 2020.

Mrs. Olawunmi Ogunmosunle, Director of Information, in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HOCSF), in a statement Monday, July 20, in Abuja, FCT, quoted Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, Head of Service, that no such circular emanated from her office.

Dr. Yemi-Esan stated that her office had never issued any circular on the subject matter.

The clarification became necessary in view of a fake circular purported to have emanated from the office of the HOCSF, stated she.

The Head of Civil Service of the Federation said: “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 HOCSF.

“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 HOCSF.

“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.”

The Director overseeing the office of the Permanent Secretary, Career Management, Office of the HOCSF had never issued or signed any such letter to that effect, stated Yemi-Esan.

The HOCSF implored public servants and the public to always visit the office Web site: www.ohcsf.gov.ng regularly to cross-check circulars and other information emanating from the office for authenticity.

“The information on the website include circulars issued by the office, reports on events and upcoming events, among others

“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,” added the statement.
