The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, has asked workers with Higher National Diploma to undergo one-year mandatory training before their conversion from Executive to Officers cadre.

Yemi-Esan disclosed this at a virtual interactive session with civil servants in commemoration of the 2024 Civil Service Week with the theme, “Educate an African Fit for the 21st Century: Building Resilient Education Systems for Increased Access to Inclusive, Life-long, Quality and Relevant Learning in Africa.”

Head of the Civil Service said the one-year mandatory training programme is to bridge the gap between polytechnic awarded Higher National Diplomas and university degrees which has been controversial between the National Universities Commission and the National Board for Technical Education.

In 2021, a bill was passed at the Ninth National Assembly to end the dichotomy but was not signed into law by the last administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan further said that the rapidly changing work environment as well as demands for greater efficiency have necessitated the adoption of a Performance Management System (PMS) by the Nigerian Civil Service, adding that PMS Policy and Guidelines have been developed and circulated to all Ministries, extra-ministerial Departments and Agencies.

She stressed that the Office has fully digitalised all personal and policy files and is implementing digital transaction workflow processes.
