Khalil Suleiman Halilu, Executive Vice-Chairman/Chief Executive Officer (EVC/CEO) of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), has assured the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR), of the regulatory agency’s commitment to delivering on its mandate of transforming Nigeria’s technology and innovation landscape.

Halilu stated Monday, February 12, 2024, this at the opening ceremony for a two-day staff training of NASENI by the Bureau, led by its Director-General, Mr. Dasuki Ibrahim Arabi, at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja, FCT.

SegunAyeoyenikan, Director of Information at NASENI, in a statement, disclosed the training programme was for the mandatory deployment of Self-Assessment Tools (SAT) for service delivery.

The statement noted Mr. Halilu reaffirmed the commitment of the Agency to fulfilling its mandate by maintaining a steadfast focus on NASENI 3Cs principles of Collaboration, Creation, and Commercialisation.

These, he said, would be attained through harnessing the power of technology, human skills, and talents to deliver remarkable benefits to Nigeria on multiple fronts.

The EVC/CEO of NASENI also stated in order to carry out agency’s mandate effectively, it is crucial to conduct a thorough assessment of the performances in line with best practices.

“This tool enables organisations to evaluate themselves comprehensively, gaining insights into how effectively they are meeting their goals.

“BPSR has employed a participatory focus group approach as the methodology for this tool, making it accessible to individuals across all levels of the Public Service.

The NASENI Executive Vice-Chairman equally encouraged all participants to give their undivided attention and make the most use of the opportunity for self-assessment and growth.

He said NASENI would gain significant advantages from the implementation of SAT by identifying its strengths and areas for improvement, enhancing professional practices, encouraging partnerships with esteemed organisations, creating opportunities to celebrate growth, developmental achievements, and skill acquisition, among other benefits.

In his remarks at the programme, Mr. Arabi, Director-General of BPSR, said the Bureau initiated the tools for Self-Assessment, monitoring and evaluation of reforms in Ministries, Agencies and Departments (MDAs) of the Federal Government for effective service delivery.

Buttressing on the mandates and directives of the Federal Government to BPSR to carry out reforms on all the MDAs, he noted that SAT is for the purpose of planning, accountability and management of public funds and to ensure that the system is corrupt-free especially in financial transactions.

He, however, urged NASENI as a Government Agency to embrace SAT in all its dealings and ensure the agency delivers effectively as the EVC/CEO is only in the system to guide the Management and staff.
