The circular was sent to the Deputy Clerk of the National Assembly, the Clerk of the Senate, the Clerk of the House of Representatives, all Secretaries, the Deputy Clerk of the Senate, the Deputy Clerk of the House, all Directors, and all staff members.

The circular titled, ‘Posting/Redeployment of Staff,’ partly read, “The management of the National Assembly has observed with great concern staff members soliciting assistance from legislators to influence their posting/redeployment to and from different directorates of their choice.

“Consequently, staff (members) are advised to strictly abide by Public Service Rules, PSR 030427 which states that ‘No officer shall seek the influence of prominent persons or any other for ensuring the due consideration of his/her claims in matters connected with discipline or with a view to obtaining consideration for appointment, transfer, promotion or posting.’”
