Delta Head Of Service Tasks Workers on Meaningful Devt.
Delta State Head of Service (HOS), Sir Paul Evuarherhe has called on civil servants in the state to contribute meaningfully to the growth and development of the state work force.
Evuarherhe made the call yesterday while playing host to the retiring Permanent Secretary in the Post Primary Education Board (PPEB) Zonal office in Oleh, headquarters of Isoko South local government area of the state, Mrs. Monica Ozomaro who paid him a pre-retirement visit in his office.
The state Head of Service charged civil servants to make positive impact in the discharge of their official duties so that they could be remembered for their positive contributions at the end of their years in service.
“We (civil servants) should strive to get to the top of our career by working diligently and obeying the civil service rules”, he said, adding that a good civil servant should live above board.
While saying that it takes perseverance and hard work to be made a Permanent Secretary in the civil service, the HOS said that there was no need for civil servants to be afraid of retirement, adding that it (retirement) was a glorious way of leaving the service after meritorious service.
Evuarherhe applauded the retiring Permanent Secretary for her remarkable contributions to the growth and development of the civil service, even as he, on behalf of the state workforce, wished her happy retirement life.
Earlier, Mrs. Ozomaro had told the HOS that she was in his office to formally intimate him of her retirement from the state civil service after putting up 34 years of meritorious service, just as she expressed appreciation to the Delta State Government for the opportunity given to her to service the people of the state as a Permanent Secretary.
