Uyo - The Akwa Ibom Government said on Thursday that 3,839 workers were retired from its service between 2007 and 2013.
Israel Udofia, the Permanent Secretary, Department of Establishment, said this at a meeting of the College of Permanent Secretaries in Uyo.
Udofia said that the retirees included 2 510 male and 1 329 female.
According to him, 2013 has the highest number of retirees running to 766.
The permanent secretary, however, said that the department had built a web portal to enable civil servants and the public to have access to information they required about the department.
He said that the results of the civil service examinations, circulars and other service information were currently being posted on the Website.
He said that a human resource database, involving the computerisation of the personal records of all employees in the state, was on-going at the department.
According to him, the database will ease the problems associated with the processing of retirement documents.
Udofia reiterated the commitment of the department to realise its statutory obligations on mandatory service examinations and convening of public service negotiating council meetings.
The state Head of Civil Service, Cecilia Udoessien, commended the department for taking a proactive step to computerise its service.
Udoessien said that the action was in line with global best practice where e-governance was gradually replacing analogue processes.
