After the inauguration of the Board members of the Ekiti Local Government Service Commission, Heads of Local Government Administration and Directors have sequentially provided briefings on the activities, challenges, and future projections of the various departments within the Commission.

These briefings form a crucial part of the activities aimed at familiarizing the Board members with the operations of the Commission.

The Chairman of the Commission, Chief Alaba Abejide, who was represented by Comrade Olusegun Onaade, while addressing the career officers at the beginning of the briefing, assured workers that the Board will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that their career progression receives the utmost attention it deserves.

He lauded the Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, for placing workers welfare on the front burner, and challenged the staff to reciprocate the gesture by imbibing work ethics to enable the governor deliver on his mandate, especially on grassroots development.

Each of the Directors took time to highlight the activities of their departments.

The Board members challenged the Information and Civic Orientation Department across the LGAs/LCDAs to rise to the occasion as their roles in information dissemination on government programmes and policies aimed at making life more meaningful for the people at the grassroots should not be treated with disdain, noting that the Directors of Information should be supported in this regard.

The Board stressed that “information is key and powerful because it is only through adequate information in the public domain that the people can appreciate and acknowledge the various giant strides that Governor Oyebanji is making in the provision of socio-economic infrastructure can be known”, adding that all hands must be on deck in the tasks of lifting the state out of poverty.

Meanwhile, the Commissioners have been allocated portfolios in their official assignments. Mr. Olawole Adedipe is Commissioner in charge of Budget, Planning, Research, Statistics and Procurement; Mr. Wole Olujobi holdsTraining and Manpower Development and Information Services Commissioner portfolio; Hon Cecilia Dada is Commissioner in charge of Environmental Health and Community Development.

In her remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Local Government Service Commission, Mrs Titilayo Toba-Ojo, who thanked Governor Oyebanji for his various intervention supports to the local government service, assured the board members that the workers were determined to ensure the success of the administration’s “shared prosperity through shared responsibility”.
