The executive secretary, Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has said the civil service “is the engine room of the government.”
According to a press statement issued by the Commission’s head of media and public relations, Celestine Toruka, the NCPC boss stated this recently in Abuja when the director-general of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Mr. Dasuki Arabi, paid him a courtesy visit.
He said the Commission would partner with the Bureau in order to improve on the areas the Commission was not doing well, adding that the NCPC was saddled with the responsibility of coordinating and supervising the movement of Christians from Nigeria to Israel and other Holy sites around the world.
The NCPC boss commended the director-general and his team for the good work the Bureau “is doing.”
Earlier, Mr. Arabi informed the NCPC boss that the Bureau was set up in 2004 to carry out positive reforms in all agencies of the government.
He also said the Bureau “helps the government agencies to do better and serve as the engine room for reforms, stressing that citizens access the Service by coming in contact with parastatal; hence the need to interface with the Commission on how to assess and improve on “what NCPC is doing.”
Arabi lauded the transformation that had taken place in the public service since 2004 which included; the introduction of the single treasury account (TSA) and the integrated personnel and payroll information system (IPPIS) “which has eliminated ghost workers by 80 per cent amongst others.”
