Dr. Kayode Adeniran

“Servicom is what we offer ourselves for.  And service is what the people are entitled to expect from us” 
         (President Olusegun Obasanjo)


The unpleasant manifestations of the appalling standard of service delivery in the country gave birth to SERVICOM.  In a bid to tackle the evils of inefficiency and corruption the government of the day inaugurated SERVICOM on the 21st March, 2004.

The Medical Director entered into a SERVICE COMPACT WITH ALL NIGERIANS (SERVICOM) on the 2005.

The Compact’s core provision says “We dedicate ourselves to providing the basic services to which citizens are entitled, timely, fairly, honestly, effectively and transparently”


THE SERVICOM CHARTER provides the following:

  • Quality services designed around customers’ requirements;
  • Set out citizens’ entitlements in ways they can easily understand;
  • List of fees payable and prohibit illegal demands;
  • Commitment to provision of services within realistic time-frames;
  • Specify officials to whom complaints may be addressed;
  • Publish these details in conspicuous places accessible to the public;
  • Conduct and publish surveys of customer satisfaction;


SERVICOM PRINCIPLES

  • All members of staff are committed to SERVICOM PRINCIPLES namely:-
  • Affirmation of commitment to the service of the people
  • Conviction that Nigeria can only realize its full potential if citizens receive prompt and efficient services 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, timely, fairly, honestly, effectively and transparently.
