Chief Justice of Niger Blasts Judicial Workers for Not Completing APER Form

Posted by

Justice Halima Ibrahim Abdulmalik, Chief Judge of Niger State and Chairman of the Niger State Judicial Service Commission (NJSC), has expressed disappointment that not all judicial employees in the state have completed the APER form.

The Annual Performance and Educational Review (APER) evaluates an employee every year to determine whether or not they should be promoted or given more training.

The Chief Judge said this while honoring the 14 highest-scoring employees from the NJSC’s promotion exams held in Minna.

She said that many state judicial employees have declined to fill out the APER form, despite the fact that it is a condition for advancement.

Justice Abdulmalik gave awards to 14 employees who had excelled in promotion exams administered by the commission, and he promised that the judiciary would continue to recognize outstanding performance in the workplace in order to foster a culture of efficiency and competence.

She said, “It is common knowledge that the efficiency and effectiveness of the judicial branch’s workforce has plummeted in recent years.”

“Poor supervision and the lack of proper, efficient, and effective assessment methodologies and strategies were some of the factors responsible.”

The state CJ also announced that an intensive retreat will be held for all categories of personnel to improve efficiency and competency in the administration of justice.
