Dr Uduaghan who enjoined them to abide by the civil service code of conduct and promote diligence, selflessness and honesty in carrying out their duties, described the civil service as a stabilizing factor and a link between the past and present.
‘’The civil service as an institution remains a stabilizing factor and a link between the past and the present. I want to say that the civil service derives its strength from being loyal to the government of the day,” he said.
He called on all ministries, departments and agencies to make use of the vast human resources in the state civil service and ensure that there was no vacuum between the various cadres in the civil service.
Dr Uduaghan challenged the leadership of all ministries, departments and agencies to work towards an effective utilization of available man power in such a way that all staff are informed of the mission and vision of the state government.
‘’I want to encourage every ministry, department and agency to make good use of the vast human resource base of the Delta state civil service by involving the junior and middle management cadres in the implementation of government policies and programmes,” he said.
The governor disclosed that all ministries, departments and agencies would be assessed through the Delta state Economic Dashboard and warned that all ministries, departments and agencies were expected to meet all agreed targets during the next appraisal exercise.
‘’From now on ministries, departments and agencies will be assessed on agreed targets through the Delta State Economic Dashboard and it is expected that all ministries, departments and agencies should be able to meet set targets,” he said.
Responding on behalf of his colleagues Sir Austin Mowah promised their unalloyed loyalty and commitment to the programmes and policies of the state government.
Sir Mowah assured that they would key into the actualisation of the state government’s vision of Delta beyond oil.
