The Director General, Bereau of Public Service Reforms. Mr Dasuki Ibrahim Arabi, says President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has since its inception introduced several intervention programmes with the cardinal objectives to lift 100 millions Nigerians out of poverty in the next 10 years.
Mr Arabi stated this in Abuja during a workshop on addressing the country’s challenges of Urbanization and Indiscriminate Development In the FCT and the Role of District Monitors.
He said the workshop became necessary to sensitize Nigerians on various laudable programmes of the present administration in the area of poverty eradication and how they could be effectively harnessed by the people.
“Unfortunately, most of these interventions are rarely accessed by the expected beneficiaries owing to reasons ranging from administrative bottlenecks, low level of awareness to problems of inclusive participation by citizens in governance,” Mr Arabi stated
He said the bureau, in its continuous effort of conducting research studies on Government Programmes and Policies and presenting best practice models for implementation in the Nigerian Public Service, organises monthly Lunch-Time Seminar.
He explained that the Seminar provides a forum for active exchange of ideas on reform issues and share experiences with a view to transfer knowledge and broadening Public Servants’ awareness on the implementation of current policy issues.
“This workshop will help the District Monitors across the FCT to bring them up-to-date with current trends in Urban Development and Current Reforms Government has put in place to address Urbanization and to ensure that Abuja remain one of the best cities in Africa and the world in line with BPSR aspiration in the National Strategy of Public Service Reforms, NSPSR” the Director General added.
