According to the statement, members of Boards of Parastatals, Extra-Ministerial Departments, Director Generals as well as local government Caretaker Committee Chairmen are all affected by the directive.
It however, disclosed that members of statutory commissions like Civil Service Commission, Judicial Service Commission, State Independent Electoral Commission and Assembly Service Commission are exempted from the directive.
