Lagos state government charges civil servants on value delivery to residents
The governor, who spoke through the Commissioner for Esterblishments, Training and Pension, Dr. Akinmola Benson,
at a training for senior civil servants on the topic, “Leadership And Management Training For Senior Civil Servants” said the primary duty of public servants is to deliver value for the people of the state.
He said his administration has been approving trainings for the benefits of the critical and invaluable human resources in charge of the institutions of the public service.
He hoped the training would further the monumental task of transforming the senior civil servants into impactful, influential and productive officers to such degrees that the output of the public service will inspire the good people of Lagos State.
“My administration fully recognises the enormous value that knowledge and soft skills training bring to bear on the attainment of the strategic objectives of the government and the public service.
“Also, the Ministry of Establishments, Training and Pensions has always been in the vanguard of advocating for the institutionalisation of essential training programmes that benefit the most strategically-placed officers in the public service.
“Indeed, it is a truism that high performances have been known to increase in organisations that expose their human capital to leadership development through training programmes of this nature. The need for ensuring and assuring the efficiency and effectiveness of public institutions has never been greater than now,” he said.
In a dynamic age of constant changes, it is widely agreed that institutions must have clearly-defined missions that are relevant to the needs and aspirations of its stakeholders. “Following this, the human capital at the helm of leadership in these institutions must have the courage to envision a future that realises the attainment of the defined mission of the institutions.
