Lagos launches campaign to change civil servants’ mind-set


The Lagos state government has launched an initiative aimed at positively changing the mind-set of its workers.

It said Lagos residents must get value for every tax paid and that henceforth its workers should be customer centric in their engagements and approaches to service delivery.

The State Commissioner for Establishments, Training and Pensions, Dr Akintola Benson Oke speaking at the inauguration of a special advocacy campaign to engender growth mind-set among civil servants and imbue them with the right skills and attitude to contribute to the efforts to fast-track development and set the state on the path of sustainable and inclusive growth, said the advocacy, which will initially last between three to six months, would be deployed to fight red tapism, complacency and all forms of attitudes that tend to delay progress and development in the work of civil service.

He said adequate arrangements have also been firmed up to sustain the advocacy for a longer period with the ultimate aim of instilling growth mind-set in all civil servants in the State. 

He recalled that since assumption of office, the State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode had invested heavily in the transformation of the public service through trainings and workshops designed to bring about improved productivity, deepen knowledge, expand horizon, as well as re-evaluate and sharpen the vision and focus of public servants, saying that the new advocacy is designed to consolidate on the gains of the previous arrangements.
