of the Public Service Innovation

One of the eight (8) priority areas in the 2017–2020 Federal Civil Service Strategy and Implementation Plan, is to Drive Innovation in the Service. This is with the aim of developing a more innovative civil service for improved service delivery via dedicated innovation units and innovation challenges.

You will agree that Nigeria’s civil service has great potentials for improvement. However, to unlock these potentials, we must first of all recognize the cardinal role innovation plays as a catalyst for positive change and development in any economy.

There is the urgent need to embrace innovation in the public sector

We are Future Oriented

It would be unbecoming of the public sector, which is expected to be the driver of the country’s socio-economic development to lag behind in this critical area. Hence, as policy makers we must all be future-oriented and adaptive to operational change so as to create value in delivery of services to Nigerians.
