FRSC boss seeks performance management system for efficient public service
The Corps Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has advocated Performance Management System to ensure the effectiveness of public servants in the nation’s public services.
Oyeyemi spoke on Wednesday in Ado-Ekiti, at the second quarterly public lecture organized for top public servants in the State with the theme “Performance management Imperative in the public service: 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 the capacity of their human capital.
He said that the public service helps to improve the quality of life of the people as well as determines the perception the people has about the effectiveness of government and governance.
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 and training and appointing a Permanent Secretary to oversee the office shows how the state values human capacity.
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 its workers using performance monitoring and evaluation as a catalyst for effective performance in public service.
The Governor who revealed that he has commenced the implementation of the new minimum wage for officers on Grade Levels 02-06, promised that other grade levels would soon benefit from the scheme once labour leaders conclude their negotiation with the government on the consequential adjustment.
