The Ag. Director-General of Bureau of Public Service Reform (BPSR), Mr. D. I. Arabi has commended the management of Budget and National Planning Ministry for driving the change matrix of the federal government through its Capacity Building Process among the staff of the Ministry.
The training is to restore the value of governance and adopt the best practice of doing business for the greater benefit of all and sundry.
Mr. Arabi who was represented by the Head of Strategic Communication Department of the Bureau, Mrs Florence Eke, stated this at the workshop with the theme, “Change Management” organised by the Reform Coordination and Service Improvement Department of the Ministry of Budget and National Planning.
The Ag. D-G noted that the Reform Coordination and Service Improvement Department of the Ministry is in the lead among all the Ministry Departments and Agency (MDAs) in implementing Reform programme activities and carrying out the mandate of BPSR. He thanks the Minister, Permanent Secretary and the entire management staff of the Ministry for their support and encouragement to the Department.
He enjoined the departments in other MDAs to emulate the good and excellent work being done at Budget and National Planning so that collectively we will all transform the Public Service to a greater and lofty height.
Fuel queues: Station manager arrested for products diversion
A petrol station manager has been arrested by the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps for diverting 26,000 litres of petrol from New Nyanya to another location in Akwanga, Nasarawa state.
According to an official of the NSCDC, Yusuf O. Ayinde, a Chief Superintendent of the Corps, the manager with Lamido Petroleum, New Nyanya, Nasarawa State, Mr. Kasim Lamido, took delivery of 40,000 litres of petrol meant for his station but discharged only 13, 3000 litres, from one out of the three compartments in the truck and diverted the remaining 26,000litres to a station in Akwanga where it would be sold at a higher price.
The suspect would be charged to court by the Civil Defence Corps after ongoing investigation.
The latest arrest validates NNPC’s position that the activities of a potent petroleum products smuggling and diversion syndicate contributed immensely to the shortage being experienced in some cities and which posed a challenge to the efforts by the Corporation to sanitize the fuel supply and distribution chain across the country.
The corporation urged motorists not to engage in panic buying as it was working in collaboration with major stakeholders to eliminate the distribution hiccups that have led to the emergence of fuel queues in some parts of the country.
Motorists are advised to report any marketer selling above N145 per litre of petrol or hoarding products to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) which is statutorily empowered to deal with such issues.
