Ogun State Civil Servants have been charged to focus on personal development to complement government’s effort on capacity building.
The State’s Head of Service (HoS), TPL. Amope Chokor stated this during a meeting with Officers on Grade Levels 16 and 17, at her Conference Room in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, advising them on the need to work in tandem with the present administration’s agenda, in order to move the State forward.
She advised Civil Servants to concentrate on activities that would boost the State’s economy in the third quarter, to overcome the disruption of Government activities caused by coronavirus during the first and second quarters of year 2020.
“Governor Dapo Abiodun has done much for the entire workforce by prompt payment of our salaries and running costs as and when due, while over 10,000 teaching and non-teaching staff were given promotion letters. He also, approved 300 percent hazard allowance for our health workers, renovated health centres and schools across the State, as well as provision of Prince Court Workers’ Estate, among others.
“What is expected of us is to support the Government by working on ourselves, train officers and give them a sense of belonging. I will also charge you to go back to your work-plan, so that you will record success at the end of the year”, she said.
Also speaking, the Directors, Production Services, Ministry of Information and Strategy, as well as his counterpart in Strategy Department, Messers Kehinde Onasanya and Sam Oyeleye, appreciated the HoS for her achievements within a short period, calling on government to do more on capacity building of its workforce.
On his part, the Director, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Mr. Martins Akinsolu, commended government on the Digiclass programme on television for students in the State during the lockdown.
