In order to enhance service delivery, the Ekiti government has trained over 1,212 public servants in the last eight months.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that the public lecture, with the theme “Strategic Roles of Public Service and Implications for Nation Building,” was organised by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management (CIPM), Ekiti branch.
Ajayi, who said that the role of public service in nation building could not be overemphasised, described it as the engine room of the government.
“One key area where we are having challenges is the broadening of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
“Within the last eight months, the newly-carved office has trained over 1,212 public servants across all cadres. This is expected to improve production at work,” Ajayi said.
The Guest Lecturer, Mrs Olabimpe Aderiye, who spoke on the topic: “The Roles of Public Service and Implications for Nation Building,” said that the quality of public service would determine the development of the nation.
According to Aderiye, the capacity of the government to govern depends on the competence and commitment of its public service.
She recommended regular discourse on the implications of public service activities on individuals and the nation, appropriate capacity building to enhance performance and positioning of officials according to competence, among others.
In his own remark, the National President and Chairman-in Council of CIPM, Mr Wale Adeniran, who was represented by Mrs Seyi Semogana, urged participants to always acquire new ideas and technologies.
Akinleye urged participants to take seriously the knowledge gained and put same into effective use for efficient service delivery.
