Kogi State Government has kicked against moves by the state chapter of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to mobilize civil servants to register as members of Labour Party (LP).

In a statement credited to the state’s Chairman of the NLC, Comrade Onuh Edoka, the labour leader was said to have asked members of the newly constituted political steering committee of LP to ensure that all workers in the state’s civil service were brought into the fold of the political party.

In a swift reaction, the state’s Head of Service, Mrs Hannah Odiyo warned civil servants in the state against joining the Labour Party (LP) or any other political party.

Odiyo gave the warning in a statement issued in Lokoja on Tuesday.

She urged all civil servants in Kogi to stay completely out of partisan politics, advising them to be guided by the provisions of Public Service Rule No: PSRS-030422 and 030423, which prohibited civil or public servants from joining any political party, noting that the rule only permitted them to register and cast votes during elections.
