The National Assembly Service Commission (NASC) Chairman, Eng Ahmed Kadi Amshi, has rolled out a comprehensive revised code of conduct for staff and promised a robust data base to check staff records.
He did this while delivering his speech during an elaborate ceremony to mark the 20th anniversary of the NASC held at the Commission’s headquarters, Jabi Abuja.
Amshi disclosed that NASC intends to establish a staff clinic to attend to emergencies and minor ailments of its staff.
This, he said, is in addition to the concluded plans to digitalize staff records and data like the IPPIS and initiate a workable pension scheme for the staff of the Commission.
He said the Commission is poised towards achieving excellence among the staffers as reward for hard work, diligence and dedication to duty, therefore on assumption of duty, the current leadership increased departments from seven to nine.
The NASC Executive Chairman assured the staff of equal opportunity, saying that it strongly believes in treating all staff of the Commission as one united family.
He stressed that training and retraining of staff was prioritised at the inception of his leadership, promising that it will continue in this trend.
Highlighting some of the achievements of his leadership, Amshi said: “Restoration of stability within the Service by revisiting and implementing the retirement age of 35 years of service or 60 years of age whichever comes first for the staff of the National Assembly Service:
“Appointments to fill the vacant positions of Top Management Officers in the National Assembly; (iv) clearing of all outstanding promotions, appeals and disciplinary cases; (v) the validation and the implementation of the financial provisions of the Conditions of Service proposed by the Commission; (vi) implementation of the National Minimum Wage for Staff of the Service.”
The new Commission, according to Amshi, has cleared all outstanding financial obligations to the staff of the Commission which also included securing funds for the construction of the new befitting headquarters of the commission due to commence soon.
Clearing of all outstanding promotions, appeals and disciplinary cases; (i) the validation and the implementation of the financial provisions of the Conditions of Service proposed by the Commission; (ii) implementation of the National Minimum Wage for
Staff of the Service; Eng Amshi reminded the staff of the Commission of the cardinal roles of the Commission which included appointment, confirmation, promotion and outright dismissal of staffers.
“As we are all aware, the power to appoint, confirm, promote, dismiss and generally exercise disciplinary control over officers in the National Assembly Service is vested solely in the National Assembly Service Commission. In this regard, we use this opportunity to launch a Code of Ethics Booklet to guide the activities of all the staff of the National Assembly Service.
“It is expected that the staff will acquaint themselves with the provision of this Code of Ethics and abide by them,” he said.
He thanked the current top management and staff of the commission for their readiness to work in line with the vision and mission of the current NASC, noting: “As we march into the 3rd Decade of the Commission, let me at this point solicit for your support, dedication, understanding and prayers so that we can achieve all the aforementioned programmes to better the lot of the Service.
“We hereby assure you that we shall abide by the Oath of Allegiance and Oath of Office administered on us by the President, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and we shall also remain focused in carrying out our assignment with justice, fairness and equity as our watchwords.”
