The Katsina state Governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari has lamented that the civil service has lost confidence in it self at the inception of present administration.
Alhaji Aminu Masari was speaking when he received the Head of civil service of Katsina state, Alhaji Usman Idris Tune who led permanent secretaries to pay him a sallah homage at government house, Katsina.
Governor Masari explained that the present administration had been making frantic efforts to reposition the civil service for optimum productivity. Alhaji Aminu Masari described the civil service as the engine vehicle for the implementation of government policies and programmes.
With time however, he said the implementation had been corrupted resorting to recruitment of consultants or contractors to do the civil service work.
Alhaji Aminu Masari said so many people were of the opinion that his administration would operate the civil service in the same manner it was operated by successive administrations, adding that some of the people were even members of the APC administration who are key officers of the struggle, adding however that what APC was preaching was attitudinal change.
Earlier, the head of civil service, Alhaji Usman Idris Tune told the Governor that they were at government house to pay sallah homage to him. Alhaji Usman Tune assured that the permanent secretaries would continue to put in their best for the success of government policies and programmes in the state.
He expressed gratitude to the governor for giving the civil service a level playing ground for optimal production. He assured that the loyalty of the permanent secretaries would continue to be guaranteed to the present administration in the state.
