Lagos State Government on Tuesday said it has abolished the entrenched practice of promoting civil servants based on career progression for performance appraisal to ensure efficient service delivery in the state.
The state’s Head of Service, Mrs Folasade Adesoye, disclosed this while at a briefing to announce activities to mark this year’s public service week, themed, ‘Transforming Governance to Realize the Sustainable Development Goals’.
She said it was the reason the state government launched a growth mindset philosophy to replace fixed mindset to institutionalise optimisation of service delivery.
Adesoye said, “To this extent, all government officials now have clearly defined job schedules against which their performance will be assessed. This approach is based on the perception that governance must be open, timely, effective and efficient.”
Dwelling on the public service week, which kicks off yesterday and ends on Monday, she said the Public Service Day celebration was introduced in 1994 following the resolution of Conference of African Ministers of Civil Service, which obliges all African countries to set aside 23rd June as the Public Service Day to recognize the value of service to humanity.
She added that some of the activities to celebrate the week include a parade cum exhibition by Ministries, Departments and Agencies; Visit to Charity Homes; Orphanages, Old Peoples’ Home and Rehabilitation Centres; Variety Show tagged ‘Alausa Has Got Talent’ Season II; Medical screening and Walk for fitness.
