While declaring the workshops open, the Head of the Federation, Mr. Danladi Kifasi, CFR mni commended the BPSR for worthwhile initiatives as it continues to seek new ways of doing government business. He underscored the importance of hand over notes in the Public Service particularly one that provides key knowledge and information regarding state of affairs of a Ministry and its Agencies and Parastatals so that the period of transition can be as short and smooth as possible. He added that this transition is unique in the sense that since return of democracy in1999, government was changing from one political party to another and that the incoming government would therefore require relevant information in order to effectively take over reins of government.
