Civil servants eyeing political positions put on notice.

Voters queue at a polling station in the last general elections.

Public servant eyeing political positions in the August 8 General elections have less than six months to work as the public service code of conduct bars public officers from seeking political positions while in service.

These individuals have only five months to work before they resign to contest political offices owing to a tight political parties election calendar.

They include Cabinet Secretaries, PSs, hundreds of heads of government agencies and parastatal chiefs as well as teachers.

However, this does not affect the President, Deputy President, governors, deputy governors, MPs and MCAs.
