The former clerk Mohammed Sani-Omolori had been removed for refusing to retire after 35 years in service.

“As you are very much aware, the Clerk to the National Assembly is an employee of the National Assembly Service Commission, vide Section 6(1)b of the National Assembly Service Act, 2014 (As amended).
“Your press release is considered by the Commission as gross insubordination to a constituted authority”, it read.
