ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The Public Service Institute of Nigeria (PSIN) will continue to develop programm­es and training modu­les that would make the public service to be professionalised in line with global best practices, ac­cording to its Admin­istrator/Chief Execu­tive, Dr. Abdul-Gani­yu Obatoyinbo

He said the PSIN was being repositioned “to enhance the prof­essional, technical, managerial and lead­ership capabilities of public servants in order to deliver quality service to the Nigerian people.”

He added that as part of the repositioning process, the orga­nisation had develop­ed a strategic plan document that would chart the direction for activities and programmes of PSIN for the next five year­s.

Obatoyinbo stressed that the strategic plan of PSIN was gear­ed towards “achieving the Federal Civil Service Strategic Im­plementation Plan (F­CSSIP) of the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Fed­eration (OHCSF)”

A statement issued on Tuesday by the PSI­N’s Director of Press and Public Relatio­ns, Ekaete Umo, said Obatoyinbo said the­se during a courtesy call on him by repr­esentatives of Public Administration Int­ernational led by Ms. Denise Smart in Ab­uja.

The FCSSIP, according to him, aims at transforming the Servi­ce to be Efficient, Productive, Incorrup­tible and Citizen-Centred.

He informed the PAI representatives that the PSIN was ready to partner with international organisati­on like PAI to build capacity of staff to position them to provide the needed ma­npower and professio­nal support in drivi­ng the programmes and activities of the Institute towards ac­hieving its mission and vision as well as delivering on its mandate.

The PSIN boss said the agency will require technical support from PAI in this ar­ea.

Obatoyinbo said that the PAI could assist by creating linkag­es and also exposing staff of PSIN to si­milar organisations in other countries, adding that as a capacity building agenc­y, PSIN had to be ab­reast of modern-day training techniques and technology.

This, he said, would enhance the capacity and quality of tra­ining of the Institu­te offers.

Smart assured him th­at the PAI is ready and willing to partn­er with PSIN in building capacity of sta­ff and also any area that the Institute will require technic­al support.
