Federal government bars civil servants from partaking in primary election

The Federal Government of Nigeria has reiterated the prohibition on civil servants to partake in primary elections.

This was contained in a circular by the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folashade Esan, obtained on Friday.

The circular came hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission asked political parties to conduct their primaries for the nomination of candidates from April 4 to June 3.

The circular dated May 5 was titled, ‘Clarification on the provision of public service vis-avis the Supreme Court judgement as it relates to participation of civil servant in partisan politics’.
