Kifasi plans to digitalise public service attendance register


ABUJA – The Head of Civil Service of the Federation (HOCSF), Mr Danladi Kifasi, has said that the Public Service attendance register would be digitalised as part of measures to check indiscipline among workers.

Kifasi made this known in his maiden meeting with directors in his office in Abuja on Monday.

 Kifasi, who was appointed Head of Service on Aug. 13, succeeded Alhaji Bukar Aji.

He said that discipline was core to achieving any meaningful goal in life.

The HOSCF said that President Goodluck Jonathan had mandated him to ensure quality service delivery in the public service.

“The president has given us a mandate to ensure that discipline starts from the top which means I have to live by example.

“We need to address the issue of indiscipline in the service if we are going to remain relevant in the scheme of things.

“And discipline is core in any activity you want to achieve. The president is very interested in the delivery of quality service.

“We are going to ensure that attendance is digitalised from today.
“I have to come to work very early, including the permanent secretary and that goes down the line to the junior level.”

Kifasi said he hoped to not only entrench discipline in service but ensure its sustainability after his tenure of service.

“Certainly, we need to internalise discipline such that it would be sustained even after my tenure in service.

“It is not a situation where I will exit from service and people will go back to their old ways, we intend to as part of capacity building  address that seriously,’’ he said.

He, therefore, called for commitment to duty by all public servants to achieve greater results.

“We also need to exhibit high level of loyalty, commitment, trust, confidence, courage and above all competence in our day-to-day activities if we want to remain relevant in the scheme of things,’’ Kifasi said. (NAN)[eap_ad_3]
