Respite for Enugu Civil Servants as Gov. Ugwuanyi Moves to Clear all Promotion Backlogs

Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.

Respite appears to be on the way soon for civil servants in Enugu State as Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has in furtherance of his administration’s commitment to the welfare of civil servants, 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).

According to a Government House, the promotion exercise was in fulfillment of the governor’s earlier promise to clear all backlogs of promotions for civil servants in the state.

Consequently, over 3,000 state civil servants last weekend converged on the Government Secondary School (GSS), Enugu, for their 2021/2022 promotional examination.

Speaking on the development, the Chairman of the ESCSC, Mr. Robinson Odo, said 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 celebrate the upcoming yuletide as promoted officers.”

Odo explained that “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.”

He added that the “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 disclosed that all hands have been on deck both at the commission and the MDAs levels to ensure that the promotion processes are successful.
