Civil/Public Service as the engine room of government plays a critical role in projects and programmes conception and implementation. DAWN Commission also considers the Region's Public Service, particularly the Heads of Service, as critical partners in advancing the Commission's vision of making the Region a preferable place to visit, live, work and invest.
It is to this end that DAWN Commission in collaboration with DFID/PERL convenes a strategic meeting of the Heads of Service in the Southwest States to discuss issues bordering on improved service delivery in the Region.
The meeting will afford us the opportunity to discuss some of DAWN Commission-DFID-PERL Partnership intervention areas within the Region's governance system.
The Heads of Service Strategic Meeting, slated to hold on Thursday, 13th September, 2018 in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, will not only provide a platform for critical governance stakeholders to engage and collaboratively discuss developmental issues within the Region but will also serve as a platform for sharing and learning of good practices among the six States.
The Meeting is expected to have in attendance, the six States' Heads of Service as well as senior Government officials who are relevant to the meeting agenda.
The one-day Strategic Meeting will critically examine key elements in improving public service delivery while also collectively determining measures to ensure continuous learning and replication of good practices across the six States of the region to foster Regional Integration.
