“I encourage you to ensure that your work meets the highest standards of quality and timeliness. As dedicated civil servants, it is crucial to remain focused on your responsibilities. Remember, this year is an election year, and your focus should be on your job rather than getting involved in partisan politics,” he stated.

In relation to promotions, the HoS mentioned that over 4,200 deserving workers would be promoted, as approved by the governor, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa. He expressed gratitude to the governor for the decision and urged the beneficiaries to reciprocate by giving their best in service delivery.
