Civil servants are the worst hit by the current economic recession in the country.-Bayoko

"Civil servants in the country are the worst hit by the current economic recession in the country.This was the submission of the Delta State Head of Service,Mr. Reginald Bayoko,in the 2017 edition of dialogue with civil servants in the state.The event,which held yesterday at the Unity Hall,Government House,Asaba, had the state’s top civil servants in attendance and focused on the dwindling oil revenue strategic option for increased Internally- Generated Revenue (IGR) in the state.

"In his opening remarks,Mr. Bayoko said that civil servants were the worst hit by the economic recession in terms of retrenchment and downsizing,among other restructuring factors aimed at increased productivity.He commended the participants in the 2017 edition for being proactive,noting that the recommendations had also received adequate attention from the governor and thanked the resource persons for their inputs,while commending the participants for the large turnout,adding that with the available resources,Governor Okowa was striving towards a stable and productive public service.

"The Permanent Secretary,Ministry of Higher Education,Dr.Jerry Agbaike,spoke on the ideal number of Permanent Secretaries in the state civil service relative to the situation in other states.He said the public service runs public administration of government,excluding the legislative,judicial and military arms and chronicled its functions to include provision of bureaucratic leadership and harnessing the vision and policies of government
.
"In his remark,the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Economic Planning,Mr.Ben Igho, presented a paper on the Rationality of Recruitment under the Current Economic Situation to fill the generational gap, occasioned by retirements,in view of the large size of the state’s public service, relative to the situation in other states of the federation.He said that the current economic situation was harsh on the state public service,adding that the stoppage of promotion arrears to workers and the devaluation of the naira against the US dollar,resulting in inflation and its other effects,led to the reduction in real wage of workers and shrinking employment opportunities,among others.

"Also in his remark,the Executive Chairman,Board of Internal Revenue,Sir Monday Onyeme,who was represented at the event by a director on the board,Mr. Paul Itawasa,in his presentation on Dwindling Oil Revenue Strategic Option for Increased Internally- Generated Revenue (IGR),noted that with the economic struggles,there had been calls for the Nigerian government to diversify the economy,away from the oil and gas sector.He said that the country’s over dependence on the oil sector was critical, while the effect of the dwindling revenue was damaging with aftershocks beyond the Federal Government.The event featured contributions,question- and- answer session,as well as solutions for a viable civil service and the state at large.
