Highlight and Matters arising from Episode 141 of the SERVICOM Help Desk Radio Programme.

The Episode 141 of the SERVICOM help desk Radio programme held on the 17th of August 2021, the National Coordinator Mrs Nnena  Akajemeli , the Public Awareness  Manager  Mrs Henrietta  Okokon were in the Studio to enlighten the Public on service delivery matter. The NC spoke on the topic ‘’Benefit of Speaking Out’’ and said SERVICOM has provided platforms for people to speak out if they are not satisfied with a particular service as this helps to add value and hold service providers accountable.

Silence means consent is a customer do not speak out thereby making the service provider thinks they are doing well the NC said, it is expedient for customers to speak out when they are not satisfied with services rendered as this will keep service providers conscious that people are watching. She further added that some MDA’s like Immigration have live chat on their website where customers can report cases of extortion and it will be attended to immediately.

We can add value to the system by expressing our concerns on the services of MDA’s by speaking out, the various Agencies can call for a Town Hall Meeting with their stake holders to access their service perspective, she said. Having functional phone numbers on MDA’s website can help customers access them for complaint which can help improve their service delivery process, she added.

Consultant IK advised SERVICOM to set up a team to check if the contact phone numbers some MDA’s website are functional an; the NC promised to take it up and roll it over to other MDA’s as we did for FCT Hospital and Nodal Officers number has been published for service takers to call if they are not satisfied with services they receive.

Highlight and Matters arising from Episode 133 of the SERVICOM Help Desk Radio Programme.

The Episode 133 of the SERVICOM Help desk Radio Programme held on the 20th of April 2021. The  National Coordinator/Chief Executive of SERVICOM, Mrs  Nnenna  Akajemeli  accompanied by the  Public  Awareness  Manager  Mrs Henrietta  Okokon  and Mr Ben Olofu  of the Operations Unit where in the studio. She thanked the Ordinary President for remaining a worthy Nigerian through the services he renders and the lives he touches. Mr Ben spoke on; How to Close Service  Delivery  Gaps in other to Drive Service Improvement in Ministries  Department and Agencies’  which is a continuation of last week’s  topic .

Service delivery gaps are the differences between what is contained in a service charter and the actual service rendered, it’s also a failure to meet customer’s expectation as contained in their service charter, Mr Ben said. A policy statement of what an organisation does is called a service charter, therefore there are lots of expectation by customers and when it’s not met, we consider it as a Gap in the servicer delivery process, he added

Gaps can be identified through feedback mechanism, evaluations  by experts  and complaints  from customers, unfortunately most MDA’s don’t have time for this complaints and reporting system, its only when this is done that the identified Gaps can be closed, Mr Ben therefore pleaded with MDA’s  to listen to customers complaint in other to identify the service delivery Gaps and treat the customers as Kings.

The NC added that the various gaps are evidences that the needs and expectations of the customers have not been met, it is therefore important for service providers to position themselves to attend to customers by reviewing their processes, the customers will come to give a feedback when they are satisfied with the service.  She advised  Customers  to complain and  use platforms like; social media, phone calls and  physical contact so that services can improve, she concluded that service givers should make their processes accessible for receiving  services.
