Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita has said yesterday’s launch of the Public Service Learning Management System (PSLMS) in Abuja is an initiative for efficient public service delivery in the country.

She also described the capacity building system, which is aimed at improving the skills and competency database of the Federal Government.

This, she explained, will enhance quick decision making towards the realisation of the 2017-2020 Economic Recovery Growth Plan (ERGP) and Federal Civil Service Strategy and Implementation Plan on capacity building and development of public servants.

Oyo-Ita stated that the e-learning platform, currently populated with over 1000 courses, also has capacity for segmenting courses as may be required by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), as well as state governments.

She noted that while the e-learning system is the first of its kind in Africa, it is also the first tripartite arrangement where the Public Service Institute of Nigeria (PSIN) and NIGCOMSAT, is collaborating with private sector agents like Sawtel Technologies.

Speaking, Administrator PSIN, Abdul-Ganiyu Obatoyinbo, said the e-learning platform will reduce the cost of training of public servants and over 10 million users.
