A gale of retirements may have swept across the Federal Civil Service as President Mohammdu Buhari may have concluded plan to relieve about 17 Permanent Secretaries of their duties.
This is coming ahead of the swearing in of the Ministers-designate on Wednesday.
Some of the permanent secretaries led by the new Acting Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, held a closed door with the president at the Presidential Villa.
It is not yet known what transpired at the meeting but feelers said that the president may have communicated the development to them.
Most of those affected were those senior to the acting Head of Service.
It was gathered the development brought tears to the Oyo-Ita at the meeting as she felt for the Permanent Secretaries. (Vanguard)
