The Director-General of the Bureau of Public Service Reforms, BPSR, Mr Dasuki Arabi, has urged state governments to emulate reforms by the Federal Government aimed at repositioning the public service.

Arabi gave the advice in Gombe on Tuesday, shortly after a meeting with top management of the Gombe State Bureau of Public Reforms Service.

He said the Nigerian public service was gradually being repositioned through digital transformation as a result of the intervention of his agency and that there was need for such reforms to be replicated at the state level.

According to him, his visit to states of the federation was to encourage them to key into the directive of President Bola Tinubu for all state governments to create their bureau of public service reforms.

He added that Tinubu had been particular about such reforms as it remained key to better service delivery in governance, and to help bridge the gap between what the government was doing and the people.

He said his agency was currently partnering critical stakeholders to introduce and promote adoption of technology to deepen accountability and transparency in the operations and services of public institutions.

“Whatever we do at the federal level, if we are not able to get it cascaded down to the states, we will not succeed.

“Data has shown that everybody that works under the federal government are between 2.7 and 2.9 million,” he said.
