Fayemi Charges Civil Servants on Hard Work
Ekiti State Government wants the civil servants to live up to the dictates of their status in service in order to meet the yearnings of the people and complement the policies and programmes of the present administration.
Governor Kayode Fayemi stated this at the swearing-in of the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries in Ado-Ekiti.
Represented by the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, Dr. Fayemi explained that civil servants were the engine room of the government, hence the need for them to justify their earning through efficient labour.
He noted that the appointment of the three Permanent Secretaries was in line with his plans to strengthen and reposition the civil service for optimal performance.
Governor Fayemi who warned that his government would not tolerate sycophancy among the civil servants promised to prioritize their welfare and that of the retirees.
The governor said his administration would not relent in its effort to restore the culture and values of the people by serving in honesty and sense of purpose.
The three new Permanent Secretaries, Messers Benjamin Afolabi, Adeleke Afolaju and Ayodele Adeyanju who could not hide their joy, appreciated Governor Fayemi for giving them the opportunity and promised to justify their new position through effective service delivery and service to humanity.
