The SERVICOM committee for reform coordination and service improvement of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development has been inaugurated by Dr Shehu Ahmed, the Permanent Secretary.
In a statement by the ministry’s Director of Information, Mr Tony Ohaeri, in Abuja on Friday, he disclosed that Ahmed commended SERVICOM for taking its rightful place in improving service delivery to Nigerians.
Ahmed assured the Committee of management’s support and urged it to work with other stakeholders in the ministry to initiate measure towards enhancing service delivery in the Ministry.
He urged members of the committee to re-dedicate themselves and work as a team to bring about positive changes in the Ministry.
Earlier, Mrs Nnenna Akajemili, acting National Coordinator of SERVICOM, stated that the inauguration of the Ministerial SERVICOM Committee in the Ministry was in line with the institutionalisation of SERVICOM Principles.
She noted that the inauguration comes in the most auspicious time when President Muhammadu Buhari is working towards ensuring change in the Nigerian public service, and most, especially in the agriculture sector.
“ I hope the inauguration of a SERVICOM Committee in the Ministry will bring about a positive change and improvement in productivity and strategies that will lead to better service delivery in the Ministry.
“The public expects accountability and transparency in the use of resources, and would, therefore, measure Government performance based on the quality of services delivered,” she said.
