FG To Empowers 118 Civil Servants Graduates Of Lead-P, With Housing Loans And Gadgets


The Federal Government has pledged to provide laptops and housing loans to 118 graduates of the Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (Lead-P), after successful completion of the Programme.

The Head of the Service of the Federation (HOCSF), Dr Folasade Yemi-Esan, made the disclosure at the graduation ceremony of the participants on Tuesday, 10th of 2022, in Abuja.

Dr. Yemi-Esan noted that out of 123 candidates that participated in the programme, 118 graduated, four others pulled out with no explanations, one died few days to the day of graduation.

She added that, a report of their action was being prepared to be sent to their respective Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

She further reiterated that, the programme was in line with the Federal Government’s determination to enhance the working conditions of the graduands with the provision of work tools including laptops and immediate releasing of resources for their housing loans.

Also Speaking, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, commended Yemi-Esan for her laudable initiative, saying leadership development for effective succession planning had, over time, remained the bane of the civil service.

He underscored the need to equip officers appropriately with such laudable programmes, adding that, the Public Service of any nation, in all its bureaucratic complexity, has aptly been described as the engine of government.

He restated that, such acts demonstrates the fact that public servants must have the capacity to support fast-moving political agendas, manage and transform vast public organisations, motivate and inspire their workforce and be trusted partners to citizens and an ever-growing list of development partners and stakeholders.

According to Mustapha, the reform in the nation’s civil service has made a remarkable impact especially during the COVID-19 pandemic period.
