The Nigerian Civil Service consists of employees in Nigerian government agencies other than the military.
Most employees are career civil servants in the Nigerian ministries, progressing based on qualifications and seniority.
Recently the head of the service has been introducing measures to make the ministries more efficient and responsive to the public.
Nigeria gained full independence in October 1960 under a constitution that provided for a parliamentary government and a substantial measure of self-government for the country's three regions.Since then, various panels have studied and made recommendations for reforming of the Civil Service, including the Margan Commission of 1963, the Adebo Commission of 1971 and the Udoji Commission of 1972-74.A major change occurred with the adoption in 1979 of a constitution modeled on that of the United States.The Dotun Philips Panel of 1985 attempted to reform to the Civil Service.The 1988 Civil Service Reorganization Decree promulgated by General Ibrahim Babangida had a major impact on the structure and efficiency of the Civil Service.
