THE Malaita deputy provincial secretary has been recalled to the Ministry of provincial government (MPGIS).
This follows the Malaita provincial assembly’s vote to have the MPGIS deal with the officer.
Malaita provincial secretary, Mr Jackson Gege tells this to Island Sun to clarify rumours that the DPS has been sacked.
Gege explained that people need to understand that Malaita provincial government (MPG) is not an employer of the DPS.
He said the DPS is a public servant, thus the MPG has no right to sack him.
“This is what happened. And as I can remember a resolution was moved in the assembly during the recent sitting to refer my DPS to the mother ministry.
“A vote was taken and majority voted in favour of recalling my DPS back,” he said.
He said reasons were there, and in order to take such actions against a secondary staff it must have strong backups to support the recall.
Gege said the recall does not mean he was sacked; he still is a public servant and the ministry can place him at any place to work.
“So I hope this information has cleared the rumour people had on the recall made on my DPS,” he said.
