The Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Nkechi Ejele has held an interactive session with the federal workers in Enugu State on the reforms in the Civil Service and the Transformation Agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan.
In her speech at the forum, she said that the purpose of the session was to brief civil servants in the State on the recent developments in the service as well as spotlight the Transformation Agenda.
She also exposed the civil servants to the varied reforms in the civil service, indicating that the Office of the Head of Service has been restructured to have three instead of six departments and the divisions reduced from twenty-six to twelve. Adding, all pension matters would be handled by a newly created Pension Transition Arrangement Department.
On observed disparity in the welfare of workers in Abuja compared to those working in the State offices, she promised to look into it.
While explaining reasons for delay in getting promotion at due date as well as payment of 28 days lodging grant, she recalled the Head of Service’s directive to all Permanent Secretaries to make a compilation of all pending beneficiaries and to work out the modality for their payment.
Nkechi Ejele further said that the training and general welfare of all Civil Servants have been looked into and urged them to imbibe the Transformation Agenda of the President.
