Okay guys, let’s get to business. On our Career Talk this time, I will be explaining a bit on PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION (PA). As secondary school students, you should be preparing your mind for the future. Whatever you want to become should be developing inch by inch while taking into consideration your strength. One of these days, I promise to write about Identifying your strength in detail.
Some weeks ago I was privilege to meet Odumosu bolajoko, SS3 student of Hamdallah College Bariga, in one of my Lagos wanderings. I met Bola and in our chat she informed me of her wish to go into Public Administration. So, I am dedicating this segment to Bola, who wants to become a Public Administrator.
According to the Wikipedia, a Public Administrator is an individual who implements government policy and also studies the implementation and prepares civil servant for working in the public service. The Oxford Advance Learners Dictionary on the other hand further simplifies this as one who ministers affairs, directs, manages, executes or disperses an affair in the community. Now, pulling out some key words we can say and be correct that public administrators are: Public servants working in public departments and agencies at all levels of governments.
The task of such officers is to stand in for government ensuring the execution of certain section of activities managed or administered by the state (whether health care, education, building, social support e. t. c). In other words, they carry out activities of the administrative agenda of the section entrusted, accordingly, in a public institution. They take decisions, review policies and oversee how these decisions and policies are implemented.
The job is a fine one really. But, as a secondary school student, if you must become one, you need to make good grades in your final year exams and top it by gaining admission to any reliable University. Stay focused, be hardworking and graduate well with honors. Do you want to become a public administrator or have a question to ask, leave me your queries in the comment session. Until next week when I come your way again, GOODBYES!
