Pengassan_1PENGASSAN, in a statement asked the Federal Government to respect its own directive with regards to the handing-over process and request parties involved to revert to status quo pending the final resolution of the matter by the Federal Government.

The statement by the  association acting scribe, Lumumba Okugbawa, decried the handling of the succession formalities in some parastatals and agencies of government whose bosses were recently removed.

According to the statement: “While it is on record that the Federal Government was unambiguous on the direction to follow in a circular from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, however some organisations did the contrary.

With the unfolding events at the PPPRA which at present has two Executive Secretaries in acting capacities, PENGASSAN is urgently calling on the Federal Government to respect its own directive with regards to the handing-over process and request all parties involved to revert to status quo pending the final resolution of the matter by the Federal Government.
