Rahila Lassa, Abuja
Civil Servants in Nigeria have been urged to be more committed in the discharge of their duties for effective and productive output.
The Head of the Civil Service of Nigeria, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan made the call during a Special Thanksgiving Service in Abuja to celebrate the successful ending of the 2022 Civil Service Week in Nigeria.
According to her “hard work and productivity are not only required of us by the government but also by God.”
Dr Yemi-Esan described the theme of the Civil Service Day, “Performance Management System: Impact on Productivity” as instructive and in tandem with what God demands of us.
She stated that, although Civil Servants are not evenly celebrated, that notwithstanding, she encouraged them not to relent in their efforts at achieving the transformation going on in the Service, promising that it is getting to a point where every Civil Servant will be proud to be one.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mr. Andrew David Adejoh described the Anonymous Reporting System as a welcome development for availing Civil Servants the opportunity to express themselves through asking questions on issues that affects them, maintaining that bad culture and making relevant suggestions, where necessary.
The 2022 Special Thanksgiving Service had in attendance Permanent Secretaries, service-wide Directors and Federal Civil Servants across all the Ministries, Departments and Agencies.
