(Abdullah Bego) Damaturu:Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam has tasked senior functionaries of the state government to continue to “cooperate and work closely and harmoniously” with their staff and management teams to ensure effective and efficient service delivery in the state.
The governor spoke today at the swearing-in of recently appointed senior officials, including permanent secretaries, chairmen of the State Pilgrims Commission and Civil Service Commission, directors-general and members of some Boards and Commissions.
“I urge the new appointees to always live above in discharging their duties in line with the goal of our administration of effective and efficient service delivery”, the governor said.
H.E Gov. Gaidam also charged the newly sworn-in chairman of the civil service commission to liaise closely with the office of the head of service to “reinvigorate the civil service” and ensure the training and re-training of staff in all cadres and grade levels for effective succession planning. “This I believe is the surest way of achieving our objectives of capacity building and filling the vacuum expected to be created by the retirement of our experienced civil servants which has already started and will intensify in a few years to come”, he said .
