Nigeria: SERVICOM Tasks Governors On Service Delivery

The National Coordinator of SERVICOM, Mr Sylbriks Obriki, has urged state governors to enhance the quality of service delivery to citizens who voted them into power.

A SERVICOM statement in Abuja on Thursday quoted Obriki as speaking when he received the Kano State SERVICOM Coordinator, Alhaji Kabiru Mohammed Gwangwazo in his office.

Obriki, who is also the Senior Special Assistant to the President, said: " the overall success of any government, at the state or Federal level is predicated on the level of service delivery to citizens".

He said the fight against service failure was necessary at all levels of government.

Obriki commended Gov. Kwankwaso of Kano State for his readiness to adopt the Service Delivery Initiative of the Federal Government.

"There is no doubt that the move of the Kano State Government will bring about improvement in public services, while ensuring that the yearnings and aspirations of the teeming population of Kano is met," he stated.

The National Coordinator assured his Kano State counterpart that the SERVICOM Office would provide all technical support needed for the success of the Initiative in Kano State.

Responding, Gwangwazo said he was "in the SERVICOM Office to seek guidance and be briefed on operations, methods and workings of the Service Delivery Initiative."

"Kano State Government is not only committed to putting an end to business as usual but desirous of connecting the people with the government through effective service delivery", he said.
