The Executive Governor of Imo State, His Excellency, Owelle Anayo Rochas Okorocha, has charged civil servants to think outside the box and develop new ideas for the country to move forward.
A press statement signed by the Director, Communication, Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Ogunmosunle A Olawunmi, stated that the governor gave the charge during the opening ceremony of the 40th National Council on Establishment (NCE) in Owerri, Imo State.
Okorocha, who advised the council to look into the issue of proper renumeration for civil servants, also said; “the Civil Service, which is the engine room of government in the formulation and implementation of government policies and programmes, needs to change its mind-set. The Civil Service needs the repackaging of the country for development to take place”.
Earlier, in her keynote address, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, reiterated the fact that the Civil Service is a foremost institution that has sustained the unity of Nigeria and ensured smooth transition of power.
She however, acknowledged the need for fresh ideas to tackle the dwindling resources, the challenge of socio-economic and infrastructural development in Nigeria.
The Head of Civil Service disclosed that 18 issues/memoranda referred to in the Standing Committee at its 39th
Meeting, have been further evaluated and thoroughly examined. The report of findings and recommendations are part of the memoranda for consideration at this meeting.
“In addition, the meeting will consider a total of 80 memoranda from stakeholders, notably State Governments and Labour
Unions. The memoranda are on creation of new cadres, amendment or elongation of existing ones and matters affecting the general welfare of civil servants”, she said.
