Nigerian Civil servants can no longer accept chieftaincy titles. This is the stance of the Federal Government as was announced on tuesday 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.
“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.”
However, there was a little twist towards the end of the press statement:
