Nigeria’s progress depends on world class public service, says Chidoka
Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Osita Chidoka has said it would be difficult for Nigeria to make any progress, unless it builds a world class public service.
Chidoka, who stated this, yesterday, in Abuja, at generation conference 2018, said: “Nigeria needs to restore service in the public service because the whole ideal of public service is not for the public to serve you, but for you to serve the public. And I think that Nigeria cannot make progress until we build a world class public service.
“Because the managers of the economy are the public servants, if there is no power it is a failure of public service, if the schools are not functioning it is a failure of the public service. So, we must build a public service that benchmarks itself as providing quality service to the citizenry. It must not be a service that thinks of itself, that the reason for its existence is to sustain itself.”
He also argued that the only way to make Nigeria great again is to elect right leaders, adding, “we as a public service must come together and elect the kind of leadership we want, leadership that reflects our aspirations, leadership that reflects our hopes and dreams of the country.
