lngawa said his immediate commitment was to discharge the mandates of the core values of Nigeria’s civil service.
The chairman noted that the FCSC had adhered strictly to extant rules and regulations since he assumed office.
The Commission recalled that the HOSF forwarded a letter on May 15, 2020. On general suspension of recruitments into the Public Service by President Muhammadu Buhari.
