Ojo Amos Olatunde has been appointed as the Acting Clerk of the National Assembly (CNA), The Cable reports.
National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) appointed Olatunji after former clerk Mohammed Sani-Omolori was removed for refusing to retire after 35 years in service.
Omolori, in a press release, insisted his time was not up yet.
This led to his query by NASC Chairman, Ahmed Kadi Amshi, on Thursday.
Amshi listed breaches of the public service rules occasioned by the Omolori’s release.
Omolori was given 24 hours to explain why disciplinary action should not be taken against him.
It read: “As you are very much aware, the Clerk to the National Assembly is an employee of the National Assembly Service Commission, vide Section 6(1)b of the National Assembly Service Act, 2014 (As amended). Your press release is considered by the Commission as gross insubordination to a constituted authority.”
