Africa Initiative for Governance (AIG) on Friday, May 15, held virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM), board meeting and Panel of Advisors’ meeting which highlighted critical areas of impact during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as other important updates.
Participants were briefed on AIG’S on-going partnership with the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) to implement its reform agenda.
The current focus is on the acceleration of its digitalisation and remote working policies, critical elements required for the public service to continue to work effectively during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Head of Service was also commended for the transparency of the recent permanent secretary recruitment exercise, which was supported by AIG.
Advisors were updated on the status of the AIG Scholarship Programme. Five new AIG Scholars will attend the University of Oxford’s Blavatnik School of Government in the next academic year to undergo a Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree. This will take the number of AIG Scholarships awarded since 2017 to 21.
Lastly, it was resolved that the next AIG Fellow would come from Ghana and that Ken Ofori-atta, honourable minister of finance for Ghana and member, AIG Panel of Advisors, would coordinate the nomination process.
