‘Efficient public service delivery key to Lagos economic prosperity’
Lagos State Public Service Club has maintained that efficient public service delivery is critical to boosting the economic prosperity of the state.
The president of the club, Oluremi Ajenifunja, at the unveiling the 40th-anniversary logo and other activities, urged civil servants to be committed to serving the residents.
He also implored them to exercise often and go for regular health checks, as it is very important for them to deliver on the job.
He said: ‘’The members of Lagos Club say it is not working alone; after work, you have to exercise to have a sound mind for service delivery. You have to be of a stable mind. We had some civil servants who dropped dead; we don’t want this to happen again. We want civil servants to be up and doing, recreate and exercise your body. If you want to deliver quality service, you have to be healthy.
‘’The Club is not meant for civil servants alone, we have those that are associate members. The club is also open to members of the public. The club’s membership strength is about 6,000. The Club, since inception, has produced 22 presidents, and is being overseen by an elected executive council made up of civil servants.’’
On the schedule of events outlined for the celebration, the Chairman of the Anniversary Planning Committee, Oluyomi Amoye, said members would be paying a visit to the founder of the club, also the first Civilian Governor of Lagos, Lateef Jakande.
The Club will also be giving back to society by visiting orphanages to donate items as well as support some members of the public.
The Club was established in 1979, to serve as a platform for social and sporting activities amongst public officials in the state.
