Furthermore, the governor urged civil servants to equip themselves with relevant knowledge of rules and regulations governing their job, adding that the state would ensure judicious allocation of resources and continual appraisal of structures and processes which must be reflected in the ways they carry out their task.
“It is our desire to leave the legacy of a public sector driven by professionalism and synergy among MDAs, efficient project performance, and zero tolerance for corruption.

“Those resources must align with current realities and trends for the civil service to effectively and successfully midwife the timely delivery of the government’s policies and programmes,” he said.
