HoS, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita urges Civil Servants to Develop Computer Skills or Forfeit Promotions.

The Head of Civil Service of the Federation, HoS, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, has charged civil servants who are office holders, to be conversant with the latest developments in Information, Technology and Communication, ICT.
Oyo-Ita gave the order in an interview with journalists in Abuja shortly after she rewarded 12 civil servants for their punctuality and commitment to work.
She ordered civil servants in the country to develop computer skills or forfeit their promotions.
According to her, any federal civil servant who fails to sharpen his or her skill in computer would not partake in computer-based promotion examinations as the Federal Government would soon switch from biro-to-paper examinations to computer-based exams for onward promotions and advancement in the civil service.
The HoS noted that the use of computers had been the major vehicle of change in the transition from industrial to information age, adding that automation of information activities in office had changed the nature of office work and had highly affected the activities of knowledge on workers.
“I decide to shift from the impunity of lateness to work to punctuality and commitment to work in order to serve as encouragement to others and also spur some others to improve on their attitude to work.
“Computer has made sending of information from one source to the other easier and simpler.
“It has become an indispensable tool for individual and national empowerment, improvement, development and actualization of service,” the HoS added. (DAILY POST)
