The Lagos State House of Assembly, yesterday, summoned the state Head of Service, HOS, Folashade Jaji, to appear today, Tuesday, July 28, 2015, over an alleged elongation of tenure of members of the state’s Judicial Service Commission, JSC.
This was the house’s reaction to a letter sent to it by members of the commission.
According to the house, the continuation in office by members of the commission was in flagrant disregard of the provisions of Section 199 of the 1999 Constitution, which states that tenure of office of public officers should end automatically as at when due.
Reacting to the letter, the Speaker of the Assembly, Mudashiru Obasa, said the Head of Service must be invited to educate the House on the due process that was followed in renewing the tenure of the members of the commission.
He said the executive arm of government has not written the House to counter its position that the commission should be dissolved as its tenure has ended.
“The Head of Service should be invited tomorrow, Tuesday, July 28 to the House on the issue. It would also serve as a signal to other agencies that once their tenure ends, they should leave office automatically,” he said.
