The Governor of Taraba State, Dr. Agbu Kefas has frowned on the decay in the civil service in the state.

He observed that the Civil Service in Taraba State is in slumber and warned Civil Servants to sit-up to their responsibilities.
Governor Kefas promised to act on the report of the committee and converted it into ‘a Responsive Civil Service Monitoring team’ to suggest areas of training and capacity-building for civil servants.
He directed for the provision of office accommodation and vehicles to the team which assignment will last for six months.
Submitting the report, Chairman of the committee, Danladi Kifasi disclosed that there is a gap in the state civil service that needs urgent attention.
Kifasi a former Head of Civil Service of the Federation further said that there is also the need for training and capacity-building of the civil servants to drive the vision of the Governor to actualization.
It could be recalled that the Governor inaugurated the committee on January 5, 2024 to screen and recommend candidates for appointment into the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the State.
The committee screened permanent secretaries which culminated into submitting its report to the Governor for appointment of a substantive Head of Civil Service in Taraba State following the expiration of the contract of Mrs. Suzy Jemima Nathan.
