Therefore, the three Director General posts and some Heads of Departments positions advertised earlier have been extended for another 12 months and will be advertised at the end of that variation term.
According to the Secretariat of PSC, the Commission will still continue to apply the policy of advertising all HOD contracts after the incumbent has served 2 consecutive terms.
