Governor Sani Bello made the remark in Minna yesterday in a statement released to mark this year’s Workers Day.

In the statement signed by Mary Noel Berje his Chief Press Secretary, Bello noted that civil servants were also “pivotal to the success of policy implementation of any administration

“Every government needs a vibrant workforce, therefore priority attention must be accorded to the critical role the civil service plays in good governance, because it has the onerous duty to execute government’s policies and programmes

“The impact of government’s policies and programmes on the citizens is determined by whether they have been implemented excellently or shoddily. This in turn depends on the efficiency and effectiveness of the civil service,” Bello further said.
