The Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, has urged the civil servants to have a change of attitude for effective performance to enhance delivery on their MDAs’ objectives.

Yemi-Esan gave the charge at the 2023 Rewards and Recognition Award ceremony on Thursday, in Abuja where some members of staff were honoured with various degrees of awards for their outstanding performance.

The Head of Service, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Career Management of the Service,Dr Marcus Ogunbiyi, said the award was a call to more dedication and service.

According to her, the service is currently implementing a lot of reforms and the office of head of service has put quite a lot in terms of encouragement and providing facilities to manage challenges.

“What we are doing today is part of performance management, when an officer is saddled with responsibility he or she must see himself as somebody very important to the nation.

“Because the assignment that you are doing is important in meeting and delivering on the objectives of your MDA and as well contributing to the delivery of the objective of Mr President.

“So, whatever you are supposed to do, when you do it well, you are not only contributing to the objective of the MDA.

“But you are also contributing to the achievement of the objectives and aim point agenda of Mr President,’’ she said.

She, therefore, congratulated the awardees and urged them to keep on moving higher while encouraging other members of staff to follow suit.

Similarly, the Permanent Secretary, Common Services, OHCSF, Mrs Jafiya Shehu, said the Service considered the welfare of its staff paramount.

Shehu explained that the awardees were carefully selected based on some defined criteria, ranging from unusual patriotic commitment, dedication to schedules and responsibilities among others.

She described the awardees as champions of the year 2023.

On behalf of the awardees, Mr Uche Ukpobi, who emerged winner of the directorate cadre, thanked the management team for the recognition/reward.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NA) reports that the awardees were given- a freezer, gas cooker, solar panel, plaques, and cash gift. (NAN)(www.nannews.com.ng)
