The statement reported the Minister of National Planning, Dr Abubakar Sulaiman, as unveiling the plan at a Town Hall Meeting with the staff of the commission.
The minister said the plan would soon be sent to the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for approval.
The statement also reported Sulaiman as saying that capacity building and staff welfare would be his priorities.
“Between now till the end of my stay as the Minister of National Planning, I will ensure equity, fairness in the privileges enjoyed by staff.
“Era of favouritism is gone. The era where an officer will attend training up to four times and others not attending even once is over. It will go round.
“In order to ensure bottom-top approach, emphasis on the staff training will now be laid on officers of grade levels 6 -12 to enhance their capacity and productivity in service,’’ the minister said.
He promised to address the anomalies in the placement of newly recruited officers in the commission and officers who deserved promotions.
“Those that are duly deserved to be promoted will surely get their promotions. They will not be denied.
“On issues that bother on staff placement, we are arresting that. Those that are wrongly placed will be fixed in their proper positions,’’ he added.
