Nigeria: Jonathan Tasks Civil Servants

Abuja — President Goodluck Jonathan has charged civil servants to ensure a harmonious working relationship that will enhance effective service delivery.

Swearing in two permanent secretaries and commissioners of the Federal Character Commission and Federal Civil Service, President Jonathan enjoined them to treat every Nigerian the same while discharging their duties.

He said: "Learn how to relate with your colleagues because one of the greatest problems we have in the service is that people fight over nothing, the relationship between one officer and the other. You must see this country as one. You must treat everybody the same way."

He told the commissioners of the Federal Character Commission that their commission was critical to the success of governance and commended the calibre of persons selected in the various responsibilities.
