Overview of The Civil Service

Since the creation of Rivers State in 1967 (53 years ago), the State has grown its Public Service to well over 40,000 Staff including staff of tertiary institutions, teachers, health care workers, judicial workers, administrators, officers and other workers at all levels.

This increase in number over the years has made the existing manual (Pen/Paper) system of Staff administration a herculean task, and has led to the decline in its efficiency in many ways.

Challenges affecting the efficiency in the administration of the Public Service

  • Organic growth of the service over the years without a growth plan.
  • Ineffective monitoring and management of the optimization service processes.
  • Ineffective and outdated processes in the management of Staff records of Service.
  • Lack of modern tools to centralize and streamline processes for effective administration.
  • Unsustainable storage of files and Staff records. Some Staff and retirees’ files are missing due to poor or outdated storage facilities/processes.
