SERVICOM was created on 21st March, 2004 by former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a bid to drive his Administration’s Service Delivery Initiative (SDI).
The word SERVICOM is an acronym which stands for “SERVICE COMPACT”. It is a system fashioned to measure and improve the quality of service as delivered by the Government through its various Ministries, Departments, Parastatals and Agencies.
In compliance with the Federal Government’s directives, The Fund’s Executive Management at its meeting on 21st July 2005 approved the establishment of the SERVICOM Unit for the Fund. Following the approval, the Fund’s SERVICOM Unit was inaugurated on the 11th of August 2005.
SERVICOM is hinged on four main principles:
- Affirmation of commitment to the service of the Nigerian nation.
- The conviction that Nigeria can only realize her full potential if citizens receive prompt and efficient service from the state.
- Consideration for the needs and rights of all Nigerians to enjoy social and economic advancement.
- Dedication to deliver services to which citizens are entitled in a timely, fair, honest, effective and transparent manner.
