Represented by the Deputy Governor, Chief (Mrs.) Yetunde Onanuga, the governor also admonished them to jealously guard against all manners of misconduct that could jeopardise the positive values and virtues of founding fathers of the Civil Service.
According to him, Ogun Civil Service is noted for excellence and the best among its peers in the federation and so they should sustain the ideal of discipline, right attitude and efficient service delivery the state Civil Service is noted for.
The governor also reiterated his administrations continuous gesture to compensate hard work, efficiency and professionalism, with improved welfare packages, not minding the paucity of funds occasioned by the nation’s dwindling economy.
