Kifasi hands over to Oyo-Ita as HSCF
The outgoing Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HCSF), Mr Danladi Kifasi has called for more attention towards the provision of welfare support for civil servants.
Kifasi made the call while presenting his hand-over notes to the Acting HCSF, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita yesterday in Abuja.
According to Kifasi, the desire to motivate civil servants for higher productivity has always been constrained by lean budgetary allocation.
He said it had become imperative to adjust expenditure to meet critical needs, sustain operations and ensure effective service delivery to the public.
Kifasi maintained that he had kept faith with the oath of allegiance he took on assumption of office 13 months ago, serving the country dutifully and faithfully.
In her remarks, Oyo-Ita thanked Mr. President for the opportunity given her to serve as head of service and given recommended Kifasi for his insight and service to the nation.
She stressed the need for civil servants to be innovative and to reposition themselves to deliver timely and quality services to meet the desire of the people. (NAN)
