Winifred Oyo-Ita, the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, has stated that the dilapidated Federal Government assets should be refurbished for greater productivity and not discarded.
She said this on Tuesday in Abuja while on inspection of the newly renovated Federal Treasury Academy FTA in Orozo in the Federal Capital Territory FCT.
According to her, the new face of the academy was a testimony to the change mantra of the present administration.
She said, “By the time the facilities are fully available for public utilisation, there will be a lot of money being generated not just for government but for the academy to manage its facilities.
“So, we can see that government is looking inwards and this is the kind of change we have been yearning for, to see a new approach to government assets.”
“Government assets should not be discarded or thrown away or allowed to deteriorate, but they should be reactivated and used for the common good and I believe this is truly change in action,” she explained.
Oyo-Ita said other government agencies would be encouraged to make use of the academy for retreats, workshops and other training events to reduce the cost of such activities.
