Dr Joe Abah - Director General
Bureau of Public Service ReformsAugust was a busy time for the Bureau as work on transparency and anti-corruption continues; and this month we made a reappearance on rhythm FM to take further questions, owing to the overwhelming demand during our first session on the radio show.
This month we took some definitive steps in the area of transparency and corruption. We signed the memorandum of understanding with The Right to Know initiative, to further promote the Freedom of Information Act. We were also able to meet with other partners in the anti corruption drive: participating at the meeting of the United Nations’ Office of Drugs and Crimes, partnering with the EFCC, the ICPC, the Code of Conduct Bureau, Code of Conduct Tribunal and the Bureau of Public Procurement.
This month we took time to meet with key collaborators. Notably, we met and spoke with Mr. President about the activities of BPSR that took place in August and we continued our partnership with donors. We had the opportunity to meet with DIFID governance adviser Tiara Abana, who has gone back to London. We appreciate the support she has given to BPSR and we wish her well in the future.
We also took part in the FEPAR annual review. FEPAR has undoubtedly been an important partner to BPSR, and we are very pleased to be able to tell the reviewers how well the partnership has worked so far.
I hope you enjoy this edition and thank you for your continued support of the Reformer Monthly.
