Kifasi Hands Over To Oyo-Ita, Urges Welfare Support For Civil Servants

Mr Danladi Kifasi, the outgoing Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HOS), has called for more attention to the provision of welfare support for civil servants.

Kifasi made the call while presenting his hand-over notes to the Acting HOS, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, on Thursday in Abuja.

According to Kifasi, the desire to motivate civil servants for higher productivity has always been constrained by lean budgetary allocation.

He said it had become imperative to adjust expenditure to meet critical needs, sustain operations and ensure effective service delivery to the public.

Kifasi maintained that he had kept faith with the oath of allegiance he took on assumption of office 13 months ago, serving the country dutifully and faithfully.

He stressed that with the cooperation of permanent secretaries, he had achieved a lot within the period he was in office.

He thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the opportunity given him to serve.

Kifasi promised continued support for the Buhari administration as he retires, adding that he would always remain proud of the country`s civil servants, whom he said, played a significant role in stabilizing the polity.

“I am sincerely proud of you all for your sense of duty, patriotism and professionalism.’’
