SERVICOM: Delta Gov, Oborevwori Revives Service Delivery

Ifeajika emphasized Oborevwori’s concern regarding declining service standards in MDAs and local governments

By Karo Oghenetega

Delta State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, has revived the SERVICOM Initiative in Delta to enhance service delivery across Ministries, Departments, Agencies, and local government councils in the state.

Mr. Olisa Ifeajika, the Executive Assistant to the Governor on Public Enlightenment (Projects and Policies), revealed this during a press conference in Asaba on Monday.

Ifeajika emphasized Oborevwori’s concern regarding declining service standards in MDAs and local governments, urging state public servants to adapt to the evolving expectations. He noted that although SERVICOM has existed for years, it hasn’t sufficiently ensured quality service delivery.

Ifeajika highlighted the administration’s commitment to continuing previous projects while initiating new ones, emphasizing Oborevwori’s dedication to delivering quality service to the state’s populace.

Ifeajika said: “The new thing is that public service is the blood of government, the brain box. When you have an undisciplined and irresponsible public service, the government of the day is doomed, but that is not the case in Delta.

“Beyond providing infrastructure for the people, there is the need to keep a disciplined public service that will drive service delivery across all MDAs and the local governments.

“SERVICOM was established by the Federal Government in 2004 to render services as it should be in all of its agencies to every Nigerian.

“It was domesticated in Delta in 2009 during the administration of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan via a document signed by him on March 2, 2009.

“As Deltans, you have a right to be served right by government. Public service drives the process of governance.

“I have come to tell us that aside from providing infrastructure, our dear Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori has directed that all public servants must imbibe the culture of SERVICOM.

“SERVICOM in Delta is domiciled in the Office of the Senior Policy Adviser to the Governor, Rt. Hon. Funkekeme Solomon, and so far, they have visited 55 MDAs out of 107 and 25 local government councils slated for sensitization on the focus of government.

“There is a ‘new Sheriff in town’ and the culture of irresponsible attitude to work is gone. When Government is providing services like road infrastructure, the public service must be ready to play its role effectively.

“SERVICOM is now an integral component of governance; every Deltan has a right to be served properly and all MDAs have been told to establish SERVICOM units to ensure compliance in line with the MORE agenda of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.”

On the conversion of government lands for private use, Ifeajika said: “some persons by way of impunity and blatant arrogance have appropriated government lands for their own use.

“This administration has empowered a Task Force on recovery of government lands to recover every government land across the state.

“If there is any building on those lands, they will be pulled down. So people are advised to stay away from government lands even in the local government areas.

“There is the popular saying that ‘when there is a will, there is a way’. Here in Delta, there is a will to have a disciplined and accountable public service.

“These policies have come, and we must embrace them for the good and sustainable development of our dear state.” Ifeajika stated.
