The Edo State Government will on Monday, June 19, 2023, begin a two-day onboarding programme for Commissioners who were newly inaugurated as members of the Edo State Executive Council (EXCO).
In a statement, the Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, said the onboarding programme will further equip the Commissioners with the knowledge and tools to effectively contribute their quota to the government’s vision of making Edo great again, sustaining the gains recorded across all sectors of the State over the past six years.
The orientation programme, according to Osagie, will take place between Monday, June 19 and Tuesday, June 20, 2023, at the John Odigie Oyegun Public Service Academy (JOOPSA), in Benin City.
He noted, “The Edo State Government is organizing an onboarding programme for the newly inaugurated Commissioners between Monday, June 19 and Tuesday, June 20, 2023, at the John Odigie-Oyegun Public Service Academy (JOOPSA) in Benin City.
“The two-day orientation programme aims to enable the newly sworn-in Commissioners to align their efforts with ongoing programmes and reforms to improve the livelihoods of our people and ensure economic prosperity for the State and will equip them with the necessary knowledge and tools to effectively contribute to the realization of the government's Making Edo Great Again (MEGA) Agenda.”
The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, had on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, inaugurated 15 new Commissioners with a charge to the appointees to sustain efforts by the government aimed at improving the livelihood of the people and ensuring economic prosperity for the State.
Describing the new Commissioners as his finishing team, Obaseki said the appointees are “made up of men and women of high standing in their careers and communities as they take over the battle, ensuring the administration finishes strong.”
He added, “This team is coming to consolidate on the excellent work done so far to make Edo great again. We would not be distracted in the next 18 months as we have a lot to finish in various sectors.”
