The Public Complaints Commission has ranked Edo State Government high on the reforms of its processes which has made it easier for the commission to access and process information from the state.
Federal Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission, Edo State, Hon. Felix Alari, said this when he led members of the commission on a courtesy visit to Government House in Benin City, Edo State.
Hon. Alari said Obaseki’s people-oriented programmes, dynamic and resourceful style of leadership have resulted in giant strides in all sectors of the state since he assumed office.
”My remarks are based on the positive rating of your performance so far, as reflected in the mood of the people of Edo State, which our commission also acknowledges, judging from the level of response from state government agencies and parastatals,” he said.
He, however, urged the governor to continue to impress on public officers and heads of public institutions the need to respond promptly to enquiries from the commission, so that the state can continue with its enviable developmental stride.
In his response, Governor Obaseki commended members of the commission for their diligence but appealed that they should never allow the agency to be used as a tool for debt collection.
“We implore you not to allow the commission to be used as debt collection agency, which, of course, is not your mandate. I am happy to note that the number of complaints are ebbing because, as a government, we respond to every mail that comes to us. We investigate the complaints to ensure that we address the issues raised,” he added.
