From Victor Akinkuolie, Ado-Ekiti
The Corps Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has advocated for good management performance in the public service, saying the move would ensure effectiveness in the nation’s public service.
The FRSC boss spoke in Ado-Ekiti, during the second quarterly public lecture organized for top public servants in the state.
The programme was themed “Performance Management Imperative in the Public Pervice: The FRSC experience”.
The Corps Marshall stressed the need to transform the civil service for effective service delivery, using the Performance Management System which he described as the modern global best practices and also to look at how states can build capacity of their human capital.
Oyeyemi commended the state for its efforts at ensuring human capacity building by training 1,212 and the idea of creating an office for establishment, training and appointing a Permanent Secretary to oversee the office shows how the state values human capacity.
He urged states to embrace professionalization of the public service, adding that performance management system as systematic approach to measure the performance of employees annually and quarterly is the process through which organizations are aligned to their mission and vision.
Oyeyemi further stated that it is the responsibility of the civil service to drive, define and break down the implementation of the vision and cardinal points of government, saying that civil servants must develop the framework on how the pillars of this administration can be achieved to make the public appreciate government policies and programmes.
Earlier in his speech, the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, who was part of the participants at the lecture, used the opportunity to express his appreciation to the state civil service for helping to drive the agenda of his administration, assuring them that he would not lay off any worker on account of payment of new minimum wage.
Fayemi promised to continue to enhance the capacity of the state workers using performance monitoring and evaluation as catalyst for effective performance in public service.
He assured Ekiti workers that his administration would continue to motivate and encourage the public service towards ensuring adequate reward for their services.
