The National Agricultural Seed Council (NASC) has been awarded the “Silver Level Certificate in Management and Governance Practice’’ by the Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR).
The council was awarded the prize following an assessment exercise conducted by BPSR to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of its services.
The Acting Director-General of BPSR, Mr Dasuki Arabi, who presented the certificate to the Director-General of NASC, Dr Philip Ojo, at a brief ceremony in Abuja on Friday, commended the council for the feat.
Arabi said that the silver level performance award given to NASC meant that the council had met public expectations in all its essential areas of responsibility, at times exceeding certain expectations, while the quality of its work was generally good.
According to him, the achievement also shows that the council has fulfilled its most critical organisational goals.
