ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, has advised Federal Public Servants in the country to explore ways to add value to their income in order to keep up with the
country’s economic challenges.
She gave the recommendation in her office in Abuja recently when she declared open a one-day seminar organized by the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigerian (ASCSN).
The workshop was held under the theme, “The Removal of Fuel Subsidy: The Gains and Pains.”
“There is no better time than now for Federal Public Servants in the country to begin to have a change of attitude by exploring avenues that would add value to themselves through the acquisition of gainful skills that would improve their human capacity development,” said Oyo-Itta.
She said further as patriotic Nigerians, workers should also add value to the economy by patronizing made-in-Nigerian goods in order to help boost the nation’s fledging economy.
In his remarks, ASCSN President (Head of the Civil Service of the Federation Chapter), Bolaji Sunday Olaiya, appealed to the Federal Government to ensure speedy implementation of the palliative programmes as a result of the recent increase in the prices of petroleum products.
Bolaji said these would help cushion the economic hardship being experienced by Nigerians and the civil servants in particular.
