The Public Service Institute of Nigeria will continue to develop programmes and training modules that will make the public service to be highly professional in line with global best practices, its Administrator and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Abdul-Ganiyu Obatoyinbo, has emphasised.

He said the PSIN was being repositioned to enhance the professional, technical, managerial and leadership capabilities of public servants in order to deliver quality service to the Nigerian people.

Obatoyinbo stated this when representatives of the Public Administration International, led by Ms. Denise Smart, visited him in his office.

He added that as part of the repositioning process, the organisation had developed a strategic plan document that would chart the direction for activities and programmes of the PSIN for the next five years.

Obatoyinbo stressed that the strategic plan of the PSIN was geared towards achieving the Federal Civil Service Strategic Implementation Plan of the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation.

The FCSSIP, according to him, aims at transforming the service to be efficient, productive, incorruptible and citizen-centred.

He informed the PAI representatives that the PSIN was ready to collaborate with international organisations like the PAI, and to build capacity of staff to position them to provide the needed work force and professional support in driving the programmes and activities of the institute towards achieving its mission and vision as well as delivering on its mandate.

The PSIN boss said the agency would require technical support from the PAI in this area.

Obatoyinbo said the PAI could assist by creating linkages and exposing employees of the PSIN to similar organisations in other countries, adding that as a capacity-building agency, the PSIN had to be abreast of modern-day training techniques and technology.

This, he noted, would enhance the capacity and quality of training of the institute.

Smart, in response, assured the PSIN boss that the PAI was ready and willing to collaborate with the institute in building capacity of staff members in any area that it would require technical support.
