FG bans civil servants from accepting chieftaincy titles

Goodluck Jonathan

The  Federal Government on Tuesday banned civil servants from accepting chieftaincy titles.

The announcement is contained in a statement signed by Tope Ajakaiye, Director (Communications), Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation.

He said the ban also included other sundry awards until their retirement or disengagement from the civil service.

According to the statement, “It has come to the notice of Government that some civil servants are in the practise of soliciting for chieftaincy titles and sundry awards.

“Such act is inimical to the principles of anonymity, integrity and political neutrality which are the core values of the civil service.

“Where a civil servant must hold a traditional title, due clearance must be obtained.

“For such, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation through the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation must approve,’’ it said.
