Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has directed management of the National Assembly to conduct a comprehensive staff audit in the National Assembly.
Chief of Staff to the Senate President, Senator Isa Galaudu in a letter to the Clerk of the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, said the measure is aimed at “verifying the skills, efficiency and motivation of the employees of the National Assembly.”
The letter issued late last year reads in part: “We have made commendable strides in our continuous endeavour to attain the goals set out in the legislative agenda of the 8th National Assembly.
“We, however, must continue to deploy clear strategies that meet the challenges facing this institution and capitalise on the strengths that we possess.
“I hereby convey the decision of the President of the Senate that you carry out comprehensive Human Resource audit.
“You should kindly, therefore engage the services of a reputable consulting firm with adequate Human Resources expertise to carry out a complete review and produce a report verifying the skills, efficiency and motivation of the employees of the National Assembly.
“The President of the Senate expects the assessment to be completed within 90 days and progress reports be submitted regularly until completion.”
