Lagos - Finance and accounting professionals in Lagos State’s civil service are poised to benefit from an ongoing training workshop the state government has organised.
Organised through the State Treasury Office, the three-day workshop commenced on Tuesday at the Lagos International Conference and Exhibition Centre in Ikeja.
The workshop aims to help professionals improve performances, produce timely reports and assist the management in making timely decisions.
In a related development, the State Ministry of Information and Strategy, in conjunction with State Partnership for Accountability Responsiveness and Capability (SPARC) has trained the state’s information managers on basic skills for enhancing reforms communications in the civil service.
The Director, Press and Public Relations in the Ministry, Ronke Osho, who represented the Permanent Secretary, Oluranti Odutola, said that the training was meant to stimulate awareness of the managers to the reforms that had taken place and those that are on-going in the state civil service and enhancing their skills in communicating such reforms to the public while exposing them to wider channels of relaying their messages.
She also said that the forum has identified key areas where reforms have taken place and are on-going in the civil service, which include the health sector, tax system, education, judiciary and transportation among others.
“Lagos being a Mega City should meet up with certain world acceptable standards in these key areas,” said Osho.
