National Assembly Clerk rejects retirement by commission

The controversy over tenure elongation of the Clerk of the National Assembly (CNA), Alhaji Mohammed Sani-Omolori, has ended with his retirement.

The National Assembly Service Commission on Wednesday issued a statement in which it announced Sani-Omolori’s retirement with 151 others, including the Secretary of the National Assembly Service Commission (NASC), Olusanya Ajakaiye.

The commission said workers who had attained the retirement age of 35 years in service or are 60 years of age should leave.

It added that such workers will get their retirement letters soon.

The commission’s statement was dated July 15, with the title: The National Assembly Service Commission Approves the Retirement Age for the Staff of the National Assembly Service as 35 years of Service or 60 years of age, whichever comes first.

But Sani-Omolori on Wednesday directed the affected workers to ignore the commission’s statement, saying it has no power to take such a decision.
