The Rivers State Government says it has approved the recruitment of 2,000 applicants for both junior and senior cadre jobs in the State Civil Service.
Chairman of the Rivers State Civil Service Commission, Chief Ngo Martyns-Yellowe, who disclosed this during an interactive session with newsmen in his office in Port Harcourt, also debunked allegations that the commission was selling forms for recruitment into the Federal Civil Service to applicants.
Martyns-Yellowe said that the proposed recruitment into the state civil service will commenced immediately after the on-going promotion exercise.
He said that, the commission was determined to clear all arrears of promotions, stressing that the current exercise will affect more than 5,000 civil servants.
Meanwhile, chairman of the Rivers State Civil Service Commission, Chief Ngo Martyns-Yellowe has described as a blatant lie, insinuations that he was selling federal civil service forms for N2,000 each.
He said that the report, which was purportedly aired in a local radio station in Port Harcourt, was not only unfriendly, but a calculated attempt to smear the image of the commission.
According to him, it is not the practice for the state civil service to sell federal civil service forms, noting that presently, there were no such forms from the federal civil service as such forms were normally distributed to applicants.
He called on journalists to always cross-check their information before reporting.
Also speaking, a Commissioner in the Commission, Chief Godwin Bebe Okpabi, urged journalists to always uphold the theory of social responsibility as far as news reporting is concerned, and urged the public to ignore the rumour.
