Rules and regulations in Public Service have been declared as mandatory for achieving desired excellence in service delivery.
This declaration was made by Mr. Olayinka A. Aiyegbayo, Assistant Commissioner, Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Department (CMED) of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) who represented the Commission at a one -day sensitization programme organized for staff of Community Health Practitioners Registration Board in Abuja.
He explained that there was no way public sector workers could provide effective and efficient service to Nigerians if they were not properly guided by the various sets of extant rules and regulations.
Aiyegbayo said: “Full compliance to public service rules is mandatory for public servants as this will promote the principles of good conduct, loyalty, honesty, hard work, and ethical integrity in the public service”.
He further elaborated that “The Anti-Corruption and Transparency Units (ACTU), by provisions of rule 8.0 of the Standing Order for the Operation of ACTUs in MDAs, has the responsibility of handling official misconduct by conducting preliminary investigation and thereafter sending a report to ICPC.
Earlier, the Registrar of the Board, Mohammed Adebayo commended ICPC for establishing ACTUs in MDAs, and urged the staff to be attentive in order to put to practice knowledge acquired from the sensitization exercise.
