Several Permanent Secretaries in the Federal Civil Service have been appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari following the selection process recently conducted.
Folasade Yemi-Esan, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HOCSF), made this known in Abuja on Friday.
In a statement, Mallam AbdulGaniyu Aminu, Director, Press and Public Relations, said that the federal permanent secretaries and their states of origin are Adebiyi Olusesan Olufunso, Ekiti; Onwudiwe Maryann Ngozi, Enugu; Yusuf Ibrahim Idris, Katsina; Ogunbiyi Marcus Olaniyi, Lagos; and Ibrahim Abubakar Kana, Nasarawa.
The date for the swearing-in and deployment of the appointees will be announced in due course, he said.
A total of 11 directors on Salary Grade Level 17 within the Federal Civil Service took the Information Communication Technology (ICT) proficiency test on June 3 in preparation for their appointment as permanent secretaries.
Eleven of the eleven directors were part of the 21 directors out of the 46 senior officers who took the written and oral assessments in Abuja.
In May, the federal government announced the shortlisting of 47 of the 51 candidates who previously faced a panel to fill the vacant positions in the five states.
