880 Lagos KAI officials Now Civil Servants
The Lagos State Government has absorbed 880 Kick Against Indiscipline officials into the state’s civil service.
Governor Babatunde Fashola said the development was part of ongoing restructuring to reposition the brigade for better service delivery to the public, a statement by KAI spokesman, Tunde Olusesi, said on Monday.
The statement added that Fashola told KAI officials about the government’s decision while addressing the officials during a meeting with him in Alausa, Ikeja.
The governor expressed joy that the KAI officials were now permanent staff in the state’s civil service.
He pointed out that the process of getting them into the service was tough as the government had to get a special cadre for them called, ‘Law Enforcement Cadre’ which according to him was hitherto non-existence.
He said, “Congratulations to you. But now, you must always do your jobs diligently with compassion and confine yourselves to your primary responsibilities without digression to let the state win the war against any form of indiscipline and disobedience.
“You must always discharge your responsibilities in a manner that the state will not be portrayed in a bad light before the public.”
The statement added that the officials had started their personal data and credentials documentation at the Lagos State Civil Service Commission and the Public Service Office.
It said the officials, who were excited over the gesture given to them by the state government, had commended the Fashola-led administration in the state. The officials also promised not to disappoint the government in discharging their duties diligently.
