Civil servants in the FCT on Thursday tasked the incoming government to improve the structure of the service for a better Nigeria.

The News Agency of Nigerian (NAN) correspondent who spoke with a cross section of the civil servants in Abuja reports that they want the government to build a stronger service structure, and to improve the workers’ salaries and welfare.

Mr Joseph Egwu said it was imperative that the incoming government fulfilled its campaign promises, part of which was the strengthening of the civil service structure and improved welfare for the workers.

“The incoming government needs to pay attention to the processes and procedures in order to strengthen the public service structure.

“We the civil servants are the heart beat of the government and because of that, we should not be left behind.

“We are expecting a lot from the incoming government because the country needs change and the change, which should huge and positive, should start from the civil service.

“We are tired of managing our salary. Salaries will be paid today and in the next two, three days, our accounts are empty. We have suffered so much,’’ he said.

On his part, Mr David Eniola said the incoming government should address issues of remuneration, unemployment, power supply, taxation and security.
