Jigawa State Civil Society Coalition and other retired citizens have called on the state government to reduce the manpower gap in the civil service in the state to restructure the government activities.

This is coming as a result of a wide gap identified in all the Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) by stakeholders  during a 2-day workshop on Strategic engagement with civil society and selected citizens on advocacies for manpower gap reduction.

The event which started on Monday at the Manpower Development Institute Dutse was organized by Partnership to Engage Reform and Learn, PERL, with the support from the British Foreign Commonwealth, and Development Office, FCDO.

According to one of the stakeholders, the Executive Secretary, Village Community Development Initiative, Lawan Ya’u Abdullahi by next year, most of the senior civil servants that deployed from Kano State will be retired and there will be no replacements.

He said the problem is critical in the education, health, and agricultural sectors to mention but a few.

Abdullahi added that education is always going back in the state due to inadequate teachers and other issues, likewise in the health sector.

He then called on the government to look into this issue and address it as soon as possible to save government work in the state.

Earlier, in his remarks, Ibrahim Baban-gallah, the State Partnership Facilitator, PERL-ECP, said the purpose of the event is to identify how to reduce the manpower gap through the appropriate channel with the Jigawa state citizens.

Baban Gallah then called on the CSOs and other citizens to enlighten people and the government in the state to fill the necessary gaps identified in the various sectors of the ministries department and agencies in the state civil service.

He said the major problem the man-power gap brings to the civil service is the reduction of professionals, inefficiency, and other problems.

The event was attended by civil society organizations, retired citizens, and citizen groups across the state.
