Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, OPTS partner to empower Directors in Federal Civil Service

The Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to transforming public service delivery in Africa, has announced a new collaboration initiative with the Oil Producers Trade Section (OPTS), an industry group of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), representing about 30-member oil and gas companies that are registered in Nigeria and have an Oil Prospecting License or  an  Oil  Mining  License.

This  collaborative  effort, which will  be  implemented  by  the  Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation in collaboration with the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (OHCSF), is  aimed at equipping Directors in the Federal Civil Service with essential leadership, project management, and communication skills through a targeted training programme.

The initiative underscores the Foundation’s unwavering commitment to strengthening public sector leadership and efficiency.

According to a press release, the official launch of the initiative was a courtesy visit by the Foundation’s Director of Funding and Partnerships to the leadership of OPTS.

“We are delighted by the partnership and support from the OPTS on this critical initiative,” said Bukky Akinsemoyin, Director of Funding and Partnerships at the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation. 

“Equipping Directors in the Civil Service with the necessary skills will greatly enhance their ability to deliver essential services and drive national development. This initiative exemplifies the positive impact that can be achieved when the public and private sectors come together.”

On his part, the Executive Director, OPTS, Mr Gwueke Ajaifia, said: “We  at  OPTS  are  firm  believers  in  supporting  initiatives  that  strengthen  the Nigerian public sector.”

He further emphasized that “by investing in the capacity of Directors, we are investing in the future of Nigeria. OPTS is proud to partner with the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation on this impactful programme.”

The Foundation said in the statement that the innovative training programme aligns perfectly with its goal of accelerating Nigeria’s development through strategic partnerships that drive public sector transformation.

“Building on past successes like the collaborative digital skills programme for civil servants with the OHCSF and Microsoft (executed by Wootlab Foundation), this initiative exemplifies the Foundation’s unwavering commitment to empowering Nigeria’s Civil service.

“The Foundation’s reach extends beyond the domain of digital fluency, as exemplified by its collaboration with the OHCSF on the Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (LEAD-P). This programme exemplifies the Foundation’s commitment to capacity building, facilitating eight-week internships for civil servants across a diverse range of private sector organisations” the statement added.
