Ambode charges HR managers on strong public service
Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has charged apex public officers in charge of human resource management in the state to develop a road map that will lead to the re-affirmation of a strong unified public service.
Governor Ambode who gave the charge in Lagos recently while declaring open a three-day retreat for members of Commissions and other related boards in the state public service explained that a unified and non-discriminatory public will guarantee the much desired efficient and effective service delivery.
“Given the experience I have gathered in the mainstream service and local government service, l am convinced that a unified and non-discriminatory public service will guarantee the much desired efficient and effective service delivery. This will naturally result from the application of uniformed rules, standards and procedures across the various service commissions,” he said.
Ambode noted that the clear understanding of the essence, purpose and advantage of an efficient, effective and motivated public service is the main reason behind the various reforms of the state government in the public service.
He asserted that a well-structured public service that is in tune with global best practices will always be an invaluable asset for the successful implementation of government ‘s policies and programmes.
His words: “As a product of the State public service myself, I take pride in affirming that the Lagos State Public Service is an efficient, proactive, value -driven and fit-for-purpose organ of the State Government that provides leadership and directions in building a dynamic and well motivated workforce for effective service delivery.”
The Governor pointed out that the retreat was informed by the need to carry along major stakeholders involved in the regulations of recruitment, appointment, promotion, discipline and transfer of public servants in order to guarantee the successful implementation of the vision and mission of the state government.
“Since the workforce is regulated by various Commissions which are either constitutionally rooted or established by government to regulate recruitment, appointment, promotion, discipline, transfer etc. in all the three tiers of governments, it is necessary that the Principal Officers and members of the recently constituted Commissions and heads of Administration in the Local Government and Council Development Areas be carried along to guarantee the successful implementation of the vision and mission of the state government,” governor Ambode stated.
