FG trains permanent secretaries, moves to reposition civil service
The Federal Government through the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, in partnership with the AIG-Imoukhuede Foundation, has organised a two-day Senior Leaders’ Programme for all Federal Permanent Secretaries and Permanent Secretaries-Designate.
According to a statement by the OHCSF, the training Programme is being facilitated by Resource Persons from the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford, London, the United Kingdom.
“It is expected to provide the much-needed impetus to propel, as well as reposition the Federal Civil Service as an initiator and a major driver of policies, projects and programmes of the Federal Government.
“It is expected that at the end of the 2-day Training Sessions, transformative coaching that combines deep expertise with analytical thinking and practical skills will be delivered to the Chief Administrative and Accounting Heads of the various MDAs with a view to addressing real-life policy challenges toward ensuring service delivery and good governance for the teaming Nigerian population.
“The Senior Leaders’ Programme dovetailed into four Plenary Sessions namely; Civil Service Reforms and Democracy, Civil Service Effectiveness, Integrity in Recruitment and Playbook for the Year Ahead. The team of Facilitators from the Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University led by Professor Christopher Stone, grouped the Participants into smaller Syndicate Sessions; Relations between the Public Service at the Federal and State Levels, Nigeria and its International Partnerships and Building Culture of Integrity”.
