The newly appointed Head of Service in Kogi, Mrs. Hasana Lawal, has been retired by the state government.
A statement issued on Friday in Lokoja by the Secretary to the State Government, Mrs. Folashade Ayoade, confirmed the Lawal’s retirement.
She was retired barely 72-hours after her appointment as substantive HoS.
Lawal was appointed as substantive HoS on August 23
She was appointed acting HoS on March 15, 2016 and no reason was given for her retirement from the civil service.
Ayoade said Lawal’s retirement takes immediate effect.
Both Lawal and Governor 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.
Ayoade, however, said Bello has graciously appointed Lawal as his new Special Adviser on Civil Service, Labour and Pension matters.
Mrs. Deborah Ogunmola has been appointed as the new HoS.
