The Edo State House of Assembly has ordered the state civil service commission to release the letter of appointment belonging to a physically challenged person, Mr Odaro Osemwengie .
This is contained in a resolution passed by the house today in Benin.
The resolution followed a petition entitled, Refusal of the health management board to give employment, signed by Mr Odaro Osemwengie.
Considering the report, the Chairman of the House Committee on Health, Mr Bamidele Oloruntoba, said Governor Adams Oshiomhole had graciously approved the appointment of Odaro in November 2011.
Mr. Oloruntoba said the health management board could not employ Odaro due to the lack of relevant qualification hence the civil service commission was directed to employ him.
He said the committee discovered that since December 2011 when the Head of Service gave the directive to the civil service commission for immediate action, it had not implemented the governor’s approval.
The committee therefore recommended that the civil service commission should release the appointment letter to the applicant within seven working days.
The house unanimously adopted the recommendation with changes and amendment.
The Speaker Uyigue Igbe directed that clean copies of the resolution be sent to the Chairman of the Civil Service Commission and the governor for immediate action.
