Federal Govt Replaces APER And Promotions For Civil Servants

The Federal Government of Nigeria has announced the replacement of Annual Performance Evaluation Review (APER) and promotion examinations for federal civil servants.

According to Premium Times, this was disclosed by the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Folasade Yemi-Esan during the end of Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council Meeting in Abuja.

Mrs Yemi-Esan said that this would be included in the new the Public Service Rules (PSR) which was last in 2008.

She further revealed that the chapter on Annual Performance Evaluation Review (APER) and promotions had been replaced by a new chapter on a newly introduced performance management system.

“There is also a chapter that has also been reinvigorated, that is, the chapter on training. This is an all important chapter because of the importance that training has in the public service." Mrs Yemi-Esan said.

She added that the new PSR had also introduced the transition from paper service to a digital service.

The Annual Performance Evaluation Report (APER) was introduced by the Nigerian government in order to enhance the performance of civil officers. It serves as the basis for regular evaluation of the performance of the civil servants.

The main objective of the APER is to give feedback to the employee on ways to improve subsequent performance, thereby enhancing productivity and efficiency in an organization’s performance. Every civil servant is expected to fill the APER form every four years in addition to promotion examination.
