Fayemi gives appointees one week to sign performance bond
Dr. Fayemi stated this, weekend, at the closing session of the three-day retreat for the state’s top government functionaries in Iloko Ijesa.
He asserted that the appointees had been “fired up” to deliver the goods to Ekiti people as promised during the electioneering.
The state, according to him, will be better for it, as the commissioners, advisers, permanent secretaries and other heads of agencies resume work fully this week with renewed vigour and a well-articulated work ethic ready to meet set goals.
Fayemi spoke as the over 100 top government functionaries that participated in the retreat signed the code of conduct specifically designed as a guide to all the appointees.
The governor stated that the appointees “now know their mandate and what the deliverables are”, adding that the vision would be shared with directors and other senior government officials that did not attend the retreat.
He urged them to align the mandate with the budget of their ministries and translate same to concrete deliverables for the people.
The second time governor expressed optimism for exciting times ahead, with the readiness of the participants.
Chief of Staff to the Governor, Biodun Omoleye, said the retreat signalled the beginning of “the transformational governance” promised by Fayemi, adding that participants had been given a mandate charter containing expectations and timelines.
Omoleye noted the penalties for any appointee who fails to comply with the mandate charter.
Meanwhile, a committee headed by the governor has been constituted to monitor implementation of the outcome of the retreat.
