In a move that has raised concerns among career civil servants, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is implementing early retirement measures in the Federal Ministry of Finance. The ministry has ordered all its directors who have spent eight years in the directorate cadre to tender their notices for early retirement.
All directors and heads of units within the ministry received a memo with the date August 3, 2023, and the signature of Mariya Rufai, the ministry’s director of administration. The memo instructs eligible directors to submit their retirement notices, leading to apprehension and discontent among the affected officials.
The implementation of these early retirement measures has sparked debate and criticism, with some expressing concerns about the impact on institutional knowledge and stability within the ministry. Questions have been raised about the rationale behind the move and its potential consequences for the efficiency and continuity of the ministry’s operations.
As the situation unfolds, civil servants affected by the directive await further details and clarifications from the ministry. Both government representatives and civil service unions are continuing to closely monitor the action because they are interested in learning the implications and reasons behind Tinubu’s decision to start early retirement within the ministry.
