Babagana Zulum, the governor of Borno State, says civil servant get salaries for doing nothing, Globalgistng reports.
The governor said people now see civil service as a place to get paid for doing nothing.
He also stressed the need to prioritise competence when choosing leaders.
“Where processes and procedures of governance are applied on a selective basis, it means we have to double our energy and check, providing overtime, motivating different levels of leadership to stand up and deliver the chance of benefit for the people,” Zulum said.
“When leadership achieves peace, then security continues to improve and economic growth naturally follows.”
The governor said apart from competence, brevity is very important for “effective governance”.
“On our part, we commit to build the institution and strengthen the weak ones so that governance continues to be meaningful in the hands of these people through service delivery,” he said.
