Reforming Nigeria’s Public Service
On Wednesday, September 27, 2017, Nextier Advisory, with support from LEAP-PERL, organised a public policy dialogue themed “Reforming Nigeria’s Public Service”. This event, which is the second of a series of policy dialogues, was organised under the auspices of Nigeria’s Governance and Policy Reform Network (GPRN). The GPRN is a network under the Roadmap Nigeria initiative. The event was held at the Chelsea Hotel in Abuja. Participants at the roundtable included senior level scholars and policy makers, senior government officials, senior policy entrepreneurs, as well as development consultants.
The core objectives of this roundtable were to:
- Establish the current state of the public service in Nigeria
- Identify the challenges in Nigeria’s public service and their root causes
- Identify reasons why previous PSR efforts were unsuccessful
- Identify key elements for a successful PSR programme
