The Head of Service of the Federation Winifred Oyo-Ita, on Wednesday said government had resolved to reward best performing civil servants and sanction under-performing ones, with a view to ensuring effective service delivery.

Mrs. Oyo-Ita said in a statement that the service would be enhanced to improve personnel structure and Performance Management System (PMS), with the introduction of reward for hard work as well as sanctions for poor performance.

The head of service said the present administration was committed to the future and welfare of workers, stressing that the recently inaugurated Federal Integrated Staff Housing (FISH) was a classic example of government’s commitment to the welfare of workers.

She said reforms aimed at ensuring financial accountability and effective service delivery in the civil service would be introduced.

The statement said the reforms would focus on value for money through capacity building and structured training programmes to equip civil servants with relevant skills to do their job diligently and efficiently.
