The Head of Service Delta State, Reginald Bayoko, has called on the Association of Senior Civil Servants to be calm as the state government is currently mediating the crisis rocking the union.
ASCSN is currently threatening to cripple the service following the crisis rocking the union as two persons emerged in parallel elections.
Bayoko, who stated this in Asaba while reacting to the allegation that he is supporting one side, noted that he was not taking sides.
He said, “As the HOS in the state, I have already asked the ministry of justice to advise me properly on the legal interpretation.
“As it is now, some part said they stood on the law while the other side said they stood on the law. I am waiting for the Ministry of Justice to advise me on the legality.
“I have advised them that this is unionism and it is all about love, negotiations and not bravado. I am not supporting any part, my concern here is to prevent industrial harmony.
“As I speak to you know, negotiation is on going to address the problem to avoid industrial unrest
Comrade Nwachukwu Bolum had claimed to be Chairman of the Association, saying that his executives were duly re-elected and returned un-opposed.
On his part, Comrade Michael Arinze, who claimed to be the interim Chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants in the State, vowed to fight to the end.
“There was no election on that date; the truth was that due to the escalated crisis, the Congress resolved to put a caretaker Committee in place pending when peace will return for proper elections to be held,” he claimed.
