Oyo Govt Charges Civil Servants On Attitudinal Change, Effective Service Delivery

Oyo State government on Monday, charged public/civil servants in the state workforce to put in their best for effective service delivery.
Commissioner for Establishment and Training, Alhaji Siju Lawal, gave the charge, in his keynote address while declaring open a one-day sensitisation workshop, on effective service delivery and attitudinal change for secretarial assistants.
At the training held at the Simeon Adebo Staff Development Centre, State Secretariat, Ibadan, Lawal noted that employees’ attitude and conducts at work were concomitant to organisational productivity and progress.
He said: “It gladdens my heart to welcome you all to this workshop organised for you in order to key into the developmental agenda of the present administration and to further deepen your knowledge to be able to compete favourably with your counterparts in the Federation.
“Employees’ attitude and conducts at work are concomitant to organisational productivity and progress. Secretaries are frontline managers. Therefore, their productivity can make or mar the productivity of their bosses.”
He acknowledged secretaries as frontline managers, saying their productivity could make or mar the performance of their bosses.
The commissioner said that its ministry decided to organise the workshop, having observed series of unethical attitudes of some secretariat assistants.
He listed some of the unethical attitudes, as sheer negligence of duties, non-challant attitude to work, lobbying for preferential postings and poor quality delivery of services.
Lawal said the workshop would avail them the opportunity to jointly diagnose the underlying factors behind the unethical conducts and proffer appropriate solutions accordingly.
He urged the participants to make the best use of knowledge gained during the training programme.
He also charged them to always strive to be the best in the course of discharging their duties to ensure that the catalytic movement of Gov. Seyi Makinde’s administration is sustained.
Fifty participants were drawn from various state ministries and agencies for the workshop.
