A Summary of BPSR's Activities in the Award Winning Month of September. cc @DrJoeAbah


Dr Joe Abah, Director-General
Bureau of Public Service Reforms

The Director-General, Dr Joe Abah, in his chat with BuzinessMorning on Channels Television, gave an insight into the on-going Public Service Reforms and hinted on the ways forward. Excerpts from the interview are presented in the edition. It is formative as it is educative.

It is heartwarming to tell us that Nigeria has won the 2016 CAFRAD Award for a new evolving Public Service based on new strategies being implemented. It is also gratifying to note that the public service reforms are indeed permeating all sectors of the economy.

BPSR, in its efforts in championing the reforms, has come up with blueprint on how to reform the Parastatals and Agencies for better productivity. One of the Reforms tools developed by BPSR, the Self-Assessment Tools (SAT) was recently presented to Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI). SAT will enable Parastatals and Agencies of Government carry out “Internal Self Assessment” and Self Diagnostic Review for better Performance, Effectiveness and Increased Productivity.

In this edition of the E-reformer, I will find stories of Federal Government efforts to provide housing for civil servants and Federal Government; partnership with DFID on the reformer. We also celebrate and showcase our officers who were honoured with the 2016 Civil Service Awards.

This edition highlights Federal Government’s efforts to improve Agricultural Development in Nigeria. The Federal Government has launched the Water Resource Roadmap with immediate and long term Strategies for the water sector. One of the greatest challenges of Government is in the area of unemployment and youth restiveness. 

The Federal Ministry of Labour and productivity, through the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), has provided a Social Intervention Scheme (N-Power). This scheme ensures the Federal Government empowers Nigerian youths to create jobs in Teaching, Agriculture, Health, ICT, Artisan, etc. sectors.

Savour our presentation and I wish you happy reading.
