NDIC bags most outstanding public institution award

30 November 2013, 08:54

Abuja - The Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation (NDIC) has emerged as the most outstanding public institution in the Finance, Trade and Investment category of the 2012/2013 Nigerian Service Delivery Awards for public institutions.

 This is contained in a statement issued on Friday in Abuja from the office of Hadi Birchi, NDIC’s Head of Communication and Public Affairs.

The statement said that the award was given by the Independent Service Delivery Monitoring Group (ISDMG), a civil society group.

It said that the corporation came first in the Finance, Trade and Investment category of the awards after a rigorous exercise that involved public opinion and technical assessment of 300 public institutions.

Over five million Nigerians were said to have voted through mobile SMS, internet and questionnaire survey, culminating in the selection of the eventual winners, the statement said.

It said that the award trophy was presented by Dr Chima Amadi, ISDMG Executive Director, to NDIC Managing Director/Chief Executive, who was represented by Alheri Bulus Nyako, the Corporation’s Board Secretary/Director, Legal Department.

“The Executive Director, Independent Service Delivery Monitoring Group (ISDMG), Dr Chima Amadi, said the NDIC came top owing to its unequalled rating by respondents in the core areas of assessment of public institutions.”

“He listed the areas as transparency and fiscal discipline, budget implementation, prompt response to enquiries, contributions to the economy, sustainable and people-oriented programmes and web visibility of the public institutions.”

“Dr Amadi pointed out that the award was a clear expression of the high level performance, innovation, qualitative service delivery and citizen’s satisfaction by the Corporation,” the statement said.

It quoted Nyako as saying that the award was a testimony to the corporation’s unrelenting commitment to discharging its mandate of depositor protection and contributing to the safety, soundness and stability of the financial system.
