The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF), Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, has called on the Management of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) to reconsider the entry position, as well as allocate slots for Federal Civil Servants into the Senior Executive Course (SEC).

Dr. Yemi-Esan, made the call when the Director General of NIPSS, Professor Ayo Omotayo and management of the Institute paid her a courtesy visit, in Abuja.

She lamented that only substantive Directors are considered eligible for admission, while the bar was being lowered for Public Servants, especially the Military and Paramilitary.

Dr. Yemi-Esan urged them to do a comparative analysis of posts in the Federal Civil Service vis-a-vis those of the Public Service with a view to correct the anomaly, adding that the data is readily accessible.

Earlier, Professor Omotayo who solicited for effective collaboration stated that the Office of the Head of Service , being the think-tank of government, should ensure that policies are well articulated, as well as executed to the latter.

Professor Omotayo gave an assurance that NIPSS would continue to develop mechanisms to ensure that government policies are properly executed.
