The affected staff were served their letters last December.
NAN reports that the letters were signed by Deborah Ogunmola, state head of service, and Ado Shaibu, chairman of the state Civil Service Commission.
A copy of the retirement letter addressed to one of the affected permanent secretaries indicated that the retirement was “in the interest of the public”.
Some of the affected permanent secretaries told NAN that they were contemplating legal action.
However, Mrs Petra Akinti-Onyegbule, chief press secretary to Yahaya Bello, the governor, defended the action, saying it was part of ongoing reforms in the civil service.
