Ombudsman feted during African Public Service Optimum awards

The Commission on Administrative Justice (Office of Ombudsman) is recognized as the most outstanding Commission in the investigation of complaints across Africa. The commission received the honour during the African Public Service Optimum (APSO) Awards ceremony held in Accra, Ghana.

The awards, a project of The Business Executive (TBE) Media Group, are designed to identify and publicly acknowledge outstanding performance by high-level public servants and institutions throughout Africa.

“These accolades are presented to those who have demonstrated exceptional dedication and excellence in their roles,” said Washington Sati, the Vice Chairperson of the Commission who received the award on behalf of the Commission.

The event in Ghana brought together numerous public institutions from across the continent to celebrate excellence in public service.

Consideration for awards covers state institutions in various forms inclusive of government institutions such as the Executive, Legislature, and Judiciary as well as state-owned agencies and enterprises.

Commitment to optimal performance, effort towards fulfilling institutional mandates and actual outturns, and impact of those efforts all serve as awardee selection criteria. Award winners are selected by a multinational Awards Selection Board, comprising 12 experts on public sector performance across Africa.
