Abiodun describes Ogun workers as vital instruments to govt policies
Underscores importance of healthcare for Nigerians
The Ogun State public servants have been described as vital instruments for the formulation and implementation of policies and programmes of government for socio-economic development of the state.
The state governor, Dapo Abiodun, who stated this at the grand finale of 2021 Public Service Day celebration at the Obas’ Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, said workers were repository of knowledge on government’s decisions.
In a statement by the Press Officer, Office of the Head of Service, Mr. Passover Adeshina, Abiodun, represented by his deputy, Noimot Salako-Oyedele, assured workers that the administration would continue to fulfill the promises and agreement made at the inception of the administration, urging the public servants to be more committed and dedicated to the development of the state.
Earlier in her welcome address, the Head of Service, Selimot Ottun, noted that the event would avail workers the opportunities to celebrate themselves by appraising their contributions, evaluating the past efforts and harmonising their collective aspiration for the development of the state.
She advised the workers to channel their efforts at reforming the public service in accordance with the world’s best practices.
In another development, Abiodun, who underscored the importance of healthcare services for the governed, described Rotary International as one of the world’s largest philanthropic organisations that thrives when it comes to provision of healthcare.
He made the remark, yesterday, through the deputy governor of the state, during the commissioning and handing over of N100 million Rotary Prostate Cancer Centre at Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, which he said, was in tandem with his administration’s commitment to ensure that all the people of Ogun State live a healthy life.
He gave kudos to the District Governor, Rotary International, District 9110, comprising Lagos and Ogun states, Bola Oyebade, for keeping to his promise of delivering the prostrate cancer centre to the teaching hospital for the use of the people.
Oyebade expressed appreciation to Ogun State government for giving Rotary International the piece of land on which the centre stands, which he said, was in the very heart of Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital.
He said the collaboration and partnership would continue with his successor, urging the state government to also partner with Rotary towards procurement of the hospital equipment.
Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker, promised maintenance of the hospital and that the government would take the right step towards equipping the centre for the benefit of the people.
