Head of Service inducts 26 directors

19 August 2013, 16:02

Abuja - Bukar Aji, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, on Monday inducted 26 for newly employed Directorate Officers.

They are on transfer from the Federal Capital Territory, Ebonyi, Bayelsa and  Bauchi.

Inducting the directors, Aji said the training was mandatory in order to acquaint and expose the directors to the rudiments, basic structures, processes, procedures and operations of the civil service.

He said the induction was also to introduce them to the subjects of code of conduct: ethics and attitudinal change in the Federal Civil Service.

At the end of the induction, the newly employed would have been equipped to imbibe courtesy in service delivery, commitment to duty and discipline in workplace.

He urged them to shun all forms of corrupt practice since the civil service was an institution that had  zero tolerance to corruption.

"As officers coming from different backgrounds, exposures and experiences in your various states, you will find the training a most appropriate source of information on the operations of the federal service.

"This will prepare you well to face the tasks and challenges ahead that you will meet in the course of your duties and responsibilities in the service.

"No doubt, you will find the training interesting and worthwhile in view of the faculty of service. We have retired public officers as resource persons on various subjects and issues.

"All I want to plead with you is to give your full attention and commitment to the lecture.

"I am confident that at the end, you would have been well equipped to face the challenges ahead.

"It will also enable you to make modest contributions to the task of transforming the Federal Republic of Nigeria in line with international best practices, he said.
