CIVIL SERVANTS TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY - Ag. HCSF
In recognition of the crucial role Civil Servants play as the “engine of the Government”, the Acting Head of Civil Service of the Federation (Ag. HCSF), Dr. Folasade Yemi-Essan has made an obvious statement that Nigeria Civil Servants should be treated with respect and dignity.
She affirmed this while inspecting Private Developers’ Estates that have proposed their property for Government partnership through the Federal Integrated Staff Housing scheme (FISH) recently at New Karu, Nasarawa State and Federal Capital Territory respectively.
Dr. Yemi-Essan asked the property owners to ensure that any offer to Civil Servants are of standard and at the same time meet the required value for the money of purchase. She reiterated that all the basic infrastructures must be in place before any further talks on up taking, insisting that Civil Servants deserve quality living standard.
The three property visited are:
Earlier before the sites inspection, the Ag HCSF visited the newly inaugurated National Shared Service Centre (NSSC) of Galaxy Backbone Government Service provider, in Abuja with Permanent Secretaries, Directors and staff of OHCSF.
According to her, they were at Galaxy to see things and to be clarified on some issues that would be useful to the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation and the Civil Servants in general. The Ag. HCSF was concerned on getting all the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) data connected to the network in order to avoid hacking and undue alterations.
She expressed her joy that the Nigeria Government is getting it right, after the explanation that, other service providers like MTN, AIRTEL and more rely on Galaxy Backbone as the most secured service provider irrespective of the cost.
The team was taken round the Network Corporation room, Tele presence room, Video Conference Room, Data Center, Back-up room and low Voltage power room of Galaxy by the Managing Director and CEO, Galaxy Backbone, Mr. Yusuf Kazaure.
