Deputy Permanent Secretary (DPS) for Finance and Administration (F&A) at PMO has explained that the civil service revolving loan scheme was created to benefit all categories of civil servants. Mustapha Nyabally made these comments during an interview with the PMO
Information Officer at his office in Banjul on Thursday where he talked about his office’s main functions and welfare of civil servants. According to Nyabally, the scheme is designed to positively improve the living conditions of many civil servants because some civil servants can now own their private cars, home among others.
“We want to make sure that all civil servants are comfortable at their workplaces as well as focus on the achievement of their sector’s mandates. To achieve this objective, we have rolled out some incentive packages that will benefit civil servants in order to ensure their welfare and lifestyles are uplifted,” DPS Nyabally stated.
Explaining his office functions, DPS Nyabally said his office functions include daily administrative matters within the office as well as ensuring that all the staff come to office on time; get their basic requirements so that they can perform their duties well. He called on the civil servants to respect the GO, PSC regulations as well as the Code of Conduct for Civil Servants while noting that lack of discipline in the Civil Service may undermine effective and efficient service delivery.
“I am appealing to all Heads of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to ensure that civil servants have the enabling environment to execute their work effectively,” he said. According to Nyabally, PMO was committed to uplifting the welfare of all civil servants: “This is why the Office in collaboration with PSC and the Office of the Secretary General and Head of the Civil Service is coming up with new pay and grading structure for all civil servants in order to ensure that they are able to work effectively towards the achievement of the country’s development objectives”.
