Local Government Service Commission, LGSC, yesterday ordered its staff wishing to join politics to follow the civil service rule and regulations.
Permanent Secretary of the commission, Alhaji Ahmed Barade, made the disclosure at a briefing with journalists yesterday at his office in Sokoto.
Barade noted that the commission had earlier issued a similar warning to all civil servants in the state, but recently “we observed that many staff have indicated interest to join politics and did not resign their appointment.
According to him, all affected staff should come to the commission for proper documentation before printing posters for election.
The permanent secretary said the commission will not hesitate to take appropriate measures against those who fail to follow due process.
