...This reform programme also offers a much-needed window to inject the vibrancy of youth into the public service. Having more young, well-educated persons in public service ranks will also result in the public service more closely reflecting the demographic of the state it is serving.
“We say clearly to the young people of Kaduna State, this is your chance to enter public service. Seize it and make a worthwhile career from truly serving the public!”
Bashir Mohammed, the Director General of Bureau for Public Service Reforms said the reform programme will address the current challenges of the State’s Public Service based on a multi-faceted approach, all aimed at repositioning the Service as an efficient service delivery organ of the government.
He explained that a key goal of the reform project is to renew public service ranks with 30% of youths between the ages of 22 and 35 in 2016 immediate term, and 50% by 2018 in the medium term. The State has already begun taking steps to achieve this goal by creating a job portal where youths in the State with tertiary education qualifications, between the ages of 22-35, can submit their details. This is to enable the government to have concise information about the number of unemployed graduates in the State and database from which to recruit youths
