FG complains About allegedly unfair admission to NIPSS



Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, the head of the federal civil service, has expressed regret over the unevenness of admission to the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) and urged the institute's management to reconsider the entry position and the allocation of seats for federal civil servants to the Senior Executive Course (SEC).


She bemoaned the fact that the bar is being lowered for Public Servants, particularly the Military and Paramilitary, while only substantive Directors are given consideration for admission.


She also complained about the meagre seven (7) slots being offered the Service, annually.


Yemi-Esan made the call while receiving a courtesy visit from NIPSS Director General Prof. Ayo Omotayo and the Institute's Management Staff in Abuja. In order to correct the anomaly, she urged them to compare the positions in the Federal Civil Service to those in the Public Service, noting that the data is easily accessible.


Yemi-Esan applauded NIPSS, however, for retraining government employees by holding courses for middle and top level officers to help them understand and apply contemporary policy formulation and strategic management skills to problem-solving in the pursuit of national developmental goals.


Dr. Yemi-Esan agreed that a partnership between the National Institute and the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF) would lead to a better understanding of governmental policies and their efficacy in advancing the nation while responding to the director general's concerns and issues.
