Just 72 hours after being appointed Head of Service in Kogi, Mrs Hasana Lawal, has been retired. This was disclosed in a Statement issued on Friday in Lokoja by the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs Folashade Ayoade.
Mrs. Lawal who had acted in that capacity from March 15, 2016 and was appointed as the substantive Head of Service on Aug. 23 was given no reason for her retirement from the civil service, as Ayoade who said that her retirement was with immediate effect, further disclosed that Mrs Deborah Ogunmola has been appointed as the new Head of Service with effect from Monday.
Both Lawal and Gov. Yahaya Bello hail from Okene Local Government Area of the state. “The State Government thanks her for her services and wishes her well in her future endeavours,” Ayoade said.
NAN reports that Ayoade, however, said that Bello had graciously appointed Lawal as his new Special Adviser on Civil Service, Labour and Pension matters.
