The federal government on Tuesday honoured 12 civil servants for their punctuality, commitment and dedication to their official responsibilities.
The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, presented certificates of commendation and a laptop to each of the 12 officers in Abuja during the permanent secretaries service wide meeting.
According to Oyo-Ita, the award was in keeping with her promise to honour, reward and encourage hard work in the Federal Civil Service.
She noted that the officers honoured were those she met at their duty posts exactly by 8a.m. when she paid an unscheduled visit to the Phase one of the Federal Secretariat Complex in Abuja last year.
The HoS said her visit to the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) was to see how staff aligned themselves with the change mantra of the present administration.
She added that the event was a proof to other civil servants that she was serious about ensuring that civil servants must be seen to function as agents of change by being efficient, productive, incorruptible and citizen- centred, in order to accelerate economic growth and development in the country.
The HoS declared that she walk the talk.
She however warned that civil servants who are in the habit of abstaining from their duty posts without prior permission or who report to work late or even close before the official working hours, would henceforth be sanctioned according to the Public Service Rules.
Oyo-Ita called on the permanent secretaries to adopt the system of paying unscheduled visit to staff in their Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) so as to encourage efficiency and productivity.
