NAPTIP Wins Award For Service Delivery

The National Agency for Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and other Related Matters (NAPTIP) has been honored by Independent Service Delivery Monitoring Group (SDMG) with a service delivery Award for its meritorious services and work in combating human trafficking in Nigeria in the year 2012-2013.
 
This award is the most recent of the Agency’s achievement within a space of its establishment 10 years ago and has come as a result of the Agency’s effort to effectively achieve its mandate in combating the scourge.
 
The Executive Secretary, NAPTIP, Mrs. Beatrice Jedy-Agba was represented by Mr. Josiah Emerole of the Public Enlightenment department of the Agency to receive the prestigious award on behalf of the Agency.
 
The award came following the result of votes cast by Nigerians through questionnaires, the internet and telephone (short messaging system), which earned the prestigious award for the Agency. The Agency ranked second amongst the 19 adjudged most outstanding public institutions in Nigeria in the Interior, Justice, Labour and productivity category.
 
The Independent Service Delivery Monitoring group, the organizers, is an arm of the Centre for Transparency advocacy, which measures service delivery index for Ministries, Departments and Agencies with the aim of evaluating their performance periodically.
 
While unveiling the 2013 Service Delivery Report, the Executive Director of ISDMG, Dr. Chima Amadi, disclosed that the civil society coalition explored the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act to evaluate over 300 public institutions of which only 19 were adjudged outstanding, saying this award will trigger government institutions to imbibe best practices in their various mandates.
 
Mr. Amadi also noted that a comprehensive report of 123 pages on the activities of the participating Ministries, Departments and Agencies was made available in providing information about their performances, innovation, quality of service delivery, probity and accountability.
 
The Executive Secretary, Mrs Beatrice Jedy-Agba while receiving the award from the recipient at the NAPTIP headquarters in Abuja, said she was pleased and proud of the Agency’s achievement. She further stated that this award will spur the Agency to do even more in combating trafficking in persons.
