Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan yes­ter­day de­scribed the civil ser­vice as an “iconic na­tional in­sti­tu­tion” which drives the coun­try’s na­tion­build­ing process.

Speak­ing at the 60th an­niver­sary of the civil ser­vice in Abuja, Jonathan also ap­plauded the vi­sion of the coun­try’s found­ing fa­thers for build­ing a “foun­da­tional in­sti­tu­tion” which has made na­tion-build­ing pos­si­ble.

Jonathan, who was rep­re­sented by Vice Pres­i­dent Mo­hammed Na­madi Sambo, also urged the com­mis­sion to en­sure elim­i­na­tion of waste in gov­er­nance.

He also im­plored the civil ser­vice to play a leading role in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s trans­for­ma­tion agenda.

“I ex­pect the civil ser­vice to play a leading role in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of our trans­for­ma­tion agenda,” he said.
