Delta Governor calls for selfless civil service

04 February 2014, 21:29

Delta - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has urged civil servants and public office holders to be dedicated to their duties and render selfless service.

He gave the charge during the swearing in of new Head for the State’s Civil Service, Paul Evuarherhe.

Uduaghan commended the new official on his appointment and challenged him to help in ensuring that the State’s Civil Service was fully information and communication technology- compliant.

“You are coming in at a time when the world is moving from analogue to digital and that is a challenge because the Delta State Government has moved into the world of ICT, especially in its financial management and we are happy, that you have the ability to deal with such challenges,” he said.

The governor told the new head of service that it was b divine intervention that he was appointed.

“It is God that has placed you there today and we want to join you in thanking God for making you the Head of Service. In that position, you have become the number one civil servant in Delta State.”

He stressed added that government could only provide the school facilities while the communities needed to cooperate with government to ensure that their children attended classes and got the right education.

Evuarherhe thanked the governor for the appointment.

He pledged promised to continue to upgrade the Delta State Civil Service to meet the challenges of an emerging world economy and make it the engine room of governance in the state.
