Umo Eno 2023: A Catalyst for Good Governance and Public Sector Development

  Umo Eno 2023: A Catalyst for Good Governance and Public Sector Development

By Ekemini James

It was Abhijit Naskar, a neuroscientist who averred that, "the validity of a democracy is predicated on the integrity of civil servants. They are the first defenders of democracy. Take the civil service out of government and the country will collapse, take politics out of government and the country will flourish."

Abhijit's postulation takes into cognizance the fact that civil servants play an important role in democracy, and a good partnership with the civil service leads to optimal service delivery. 

In consideration of the importance of Civil Servants in Akwa Ibom State, Pastor Umo Eno's administration from 2023, will prioritize the welfare and entitlements of civil servants and get them motivated for quality service delivery.

In the quest to forestall efficiency, his administration will embark on intensive development of ICT-related skills among civil servants.

As part of the merits that comes with having an ICT-compliant public service, Pastor Umo Eno will further promote the usage of e-Governance platforms to speed up processes in the public sector, as well as promote accountability and transparency by ensuring compliance with Fiscal Responsibility and Public Procurement Acts.

To engender economic growth, the seasoned entrepreneur will put up policies that will foster the patronage of indigenous businesses in the implementation of public projects to prevent capital flight.

Since the Relational Leadership Model indicates that empowering workers makes them feel valued, his administration will embark on capacity building programmes for public servants, as well as put up a good reward system which will help  increase productivity and improve work ethics.

In order to encourage excellence and hard work, his administration will initiate an awards and recognition platform to celebrate the brightest and best Akwa Ibomites who have excelled in various spheres of life; at home and in the diaspora.

A vote for Pastor Umo Eno is a choice for good governance and public service development in Akwa Ibom State.
