‘Public service reforms will engender productivity, sustainable future for Edo’
Obaseki swears in CJ as state PDP pledges support for gov
Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki has declared that ongoing reforms in the state’s public service will engender sustainable future, improve productivity and service delivery to the people.
Obaseki, who spoke to journalists in Benin City, said the state government was strengthening the civil and public service with a view to ensuring that the state’s workforce was equipped with human and material capacity.
He sought the peoples support to realise the administration’s vision of making Edo great again, noting that the government was working hard to rethink how it could best deliver services to Edo people.
Stating that the government would provide training and support for workers in the civil service to improve efficiency and service delivery, Obaseki said it was unfair to continue to spend taxpayers money on people who are not working or do not have the capacity to work.
BESIDES Governor Obaseki inaugurated Justice Joe Acha as acting chief judge of the state with a charge to carry out his duties with fairness, honesty and transparency.
Acha’s swearing-in, at Government House, Benin City, followed the retirement of Justice Esther Edigin, who legal practitioners described as incorruptible, calm and fearless in the line of duties.
However, during the inauguration of the new CJ, Obaseki noted: “The peaceful, orderly and predictable transfer of power within the leadership of all arms of government, is the single most important hallmark of a civilized working democracy.”
Responding, Acha said he would continue to interface with other arms of government in justice delivery for the peace and progress of Edo State.
Acha noted that within the next few weeks, he would embark on training all the registrars and secretaries to enhance their productivity.
MEANWHILE, Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that the party was united in spite of the uneasy calm that enveloped it in the last couple of days.
A statement issued in Benin City by its publicity secretary, Chris Nehikhare, said that the events that led to the unfortunate rancour among members, including Governor Obaseki, was regrettable and that the issues were being addressed.
