FG to Reposition Civil Service


By Jaiyeola Andrews

The federal government on Thursday said it was poised to reposition the federal civil service for a more effective service delivery to Nigerians.

The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoSF), Mrs. Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, made the federal government’s position known when she received members of the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) led by its President and Chairman Mr. Anthony Chukwuemeka Nzom in her office.

She said as a machinery for the delivery of good governance, the civil service deserved the greatest attention.

The HoS noted that concerted efforts were being made to identify areas of weakness of the service, and also streamline past efforts made towards repositioning the service for effective and efficient service delivery to the citizens of Nigeria.

She said having identified the need to build the capacity of the civil service across board, her office was developing a Structured Assessment Based Training Programme (SABTP) to equip civil servants with basic skills and knowledge required to discharge their duties in a more professional, knowledgeable, competent and effective manner.

Oyo-Ita equally disclosed that her office was ready to extend such trainings to members of ANAN, with a view to enhancing service delivery.
