FG to restore integrity in Public Service

03 October 2016, 20:29

Abuja - Nigeria is celebrating its 56th Independence Day anniversary with an assurance by the Civil Service of the government’s commitment to the restoration of dignity, integrity and confidence in the public service.

This would be attained through the promotion and provision of staff welfare and motivation, forging a cast-iron relationship between the political and bureaucratic leadership, identifying and targeting the main barriers to innovation among others.

Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, gave the assurance in Abuja to coincide with independence celebrations, which were marked on Saturday and continue to today (Monday).

She said relevant training programmes that were aimed at enhancing the workforce so as to reposition it in the new task of bringing the desired change were being put in place.

“Government will do everything humanly possible to restore integrity and confidence of its workforce for effective service delivery to Nigerians,” said Oyo-Ita.

She assured that the present administration under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to the provision of better welfare services for workers so as to help ease their sufferings particularly in the area of provision of decent and affordable accommodation.

“Modalities are being worked out on how workers can earn their own home through the Federal Integrated Staff Housing Programme with little or no pains,” said Oyo-Ita.

While wishing workers successful Independence Day celebrations, she thanked them for their understanding, patience, commitment, and punctuality to duty even with the current economic crisis that was confronting the nation.
