Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Monday swore-in two newly appointed Permanent Secretaries into the State Civil Service with a charge on the appointees to be champions of his administration’s continuity with improvement mantra.

The Governor who spoke at the Executive Council Chambers of the Lagos House, Ikeja, said Permanent Secretaries, as drivers of various government ministries and agencies are important to him, and as such, his administration would always appoint only the very best.

The Governor described the appointment as a testament of his commitment to continually reinvigorate the machinery of government through elevation of worthy and qualified personnel from the pool of skilled human capital available in the State Public Service, said the appointees must hit the ground running and not hesitate to take tough decisions.

Governor Ambode said a lot is expected from them adding that they must be ready to show leadership as people are eagerly waiting to see the direct and indirect impact of government policies and programmes, which they must drive.

He said that leadership at any level of human organization, especially at this challenging time, requires innovation, creativity and resource management. The new appointees are therefore enjoined to immediately hit the ground running as Lagos people are eager to see the direct and indirect impact of government policies and programmes.

The governor also mentioned the fact that civil and public servants are agents of change and enablers of government policies. The Permanent Secretaries are therefore the mirror which reflects the quality of service our civil servants are offering.

“As I congratulate our newly sworn-in Permanent Secretaries on your well deserved appointments, I urge you to live up to the dictate of your new status as the appointment was based on your outstanding trajectories which were found to be in line with the skills and competency required to drive Lagos State,” Governor Ambode said.

The newly appointed Permanent Secretaries are Dr. Olayiwole Shakirudeen Onasanya and Mr. Olumide Abayomi Lawal.
