In its efforts at transforming and digitising the Nigerian Government’s work processes, Mrs. Folasade Yemi-Esan, Head of Service of the Federation (HoCSF), has expressed confidence that the West African country’s entire Service encompassing Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) will be fully digitised by the end of 2025.

Mrs. Yemi-Esan disclosed this development Wednesday, December 13, 2023, during the 45th Meeting of the National Council of Establishment, held in Bauchi, Bauchi State capital, in Northern Nigeria.

ConsumerConnect learnt the three-day meeting focused on various issues concerning the public service in the country.

The discussions also focused on advancing the cause of the Service for national development.

Speaking at the forum, the HoSCF noted that the Federal Civil Service is currently making significant progress in a bid to transform and digitise work processes in the Service.

She stated: “From the Service-wide perspective, all MDAs, all other ministries are also running with the digitalisation programme and there are different stages of implementation, but they have a mandate for all to achieve full migration by the end of 2025.

“It is also worth adding that efforts aimed at transforming the Federal Civil Service through the digitalisation of its work processes have yielded the desired results.”

Speaking at the forum, Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi Bauchi State, who declared the session open in his address, highlighted the significance of collaboration as he announced measures taken by his administration to improve manpower in the state service.

Mohammed was quoted to have said: “Despite the growth in the number of our teeming youths who graduated from various institutions of higher learning with Certificates in various disciplines, and the decrease in the number of civil servants in the state’s civil service occasioned by retirement, redeployment and deaths, there has not been recruitment in the various cadres of the service for quite some time.

“In order to address the anomaly, I have given the approval for the employment of 10,000 workers across the critical sectors of the civil service.”

Also, in his remarks on the occasion, Mr. Yahuza Adamu, Bauchi State Head of Civil Service, restated the Bauchi State’s commitment to workers’ welfare, providing a conducive working environment, and promoting discipline among employees.

The Heads of Service, Permanent Secretaries, and Directors of establishment from all 36 states participated in the 45th meeting of the National Council of Establishment in Bauchi, according to report.
