Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State in Western Nigeria has started to test run his administration's reform agenda for the state's public service which has something to do with the electronic time management system.
Osun State Government officials in Abuja, Nigeria's Federal Capital City said on Monday that the electronic time management system currently being test run is aimed at enhancing service delivery and productivity in the public service.
The test run which is billed to last for 8 working days is at the moment taking place in these ministries: Finance; Education; Agriculture and Food Security; Innovation Science and Technology and the Ministry of Human Resources and Capacity Building.
A pointer to this development was, however, contained in a statement from the Office of State and Local Government Reform Project (SLOGOR) that was signed by its Communications Officer, Mr Oni Olugbenga.
Olugbenga said Governor Aregbesola expressly stated his intention to reform the entire Osun public service for better productivity without sacking any worker in his Green Book.
The Aregbesola reform plan includes the introduction of time management system, not aimed at witch-hunting any worker but to improve efficiency and discipline which is said to be the hallmark of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration in the state.
Osun public service workers are therefore being urged to go about their normal duties with diligence and with the mindset of contributing their quota to the growth and development of the state.
