Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dauda Biu, is set to retire from the organization after 35 years in service.
Uncertainty currently prevails at the FRSC head office Abuja over the issue as Biu was expected to have embarked on retirement leave since July 11.
No one is sure why CM Biu is still in the office even though a letter recently addressed to him said he should proceed on retirement leave on that date.
In a memo by the Corps Secretary, Assistant Corps Marshal Susan A. Ajonge, Biu ought to have commenced his retirement leave on July 11 this year.
The retirement notice addressed to the corps marshal read, “Your retirement from the service takes effect from October 11, 2023 after 35 years of service.”
He was therefore told in the memo that “your terminal leave would commence from July 11, 2023.”
The memo, which was titled “Pre-notice of retirement from service of FRSC” on February 22, 2023, advised the corps marshal to liaise with the Corps Pension Office, Administration and Human Resources Department RSHQ immediately for appropriate documentation.
Biu was one of the pioneer staff of the corps at FRSC inception and is said to be lobbying for an extension of service.
He was second-in-command to the immediate past corps marshal, Mr Boboyo Oyeyemi, who handed over to him last year.
Biu was in charge of the administration and finance department of the corps for eight years before his confirmation as the substantive corps marshal last year.
More than six senior officers are said to be jostling to take over any moment he commences his retirement leave.
