The Edo State Government has urged workers in the state to be diligent and committed to effectively discharging their duties so as to complement the government’s efforts at improving the livelihoods of the people and ensuring economic prosperity for the state.

The Edo State Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa Esq. gave the charge when he received officers recently sponsored on a training by the state government at the National Institute for Policy, and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, Plateau State between August 1st and 26th, 2022.

The Head of Service noted that the NIPSS course was part of the government’s effort at repositioning the civil and public Service through training and retraining of the workers to enhance productivity with a view to achieving greater efficiency in the implementation of government ‘s policies and programmes aimed at bettering the lives of the people.


He urged the Officers to treat their assigned duties with the benefit of a broader horizon, leveraging the experience gained to impact the service.
