Lagos—Lagos State government has absorbed 880 Kick Against Indiscipline, KAI, officials into the state civil service as part of ongoing restructuring in the organisation aimed at repositioning it for better service delivery.
The affected officials have started keying in their personal data and credentials documentation at Lagos state civil service commission and Public Service Office, PSO.
Some of the beneficiaries expressed appreciation to government for making their dreams come true.
Speaking with Vanguard, Mr. A. Tunde, a graduate former KAI officer promised on behalf of other beneficiaries not to disappoint the state government, “We promise to serve the state with all our hearts and discharge our duties diligently.”
Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, while addressing the KAI officials expressed joy that they have become permanent staff in the state civil service, pointing out that the process of getting them into the service was tough as government had to lobby to get a special cadre for them called “ Law Enforcement Cadre” which according to him was hither to non-existent.
He congratulated them, urging them to always do their jobs diligently with compassion and confine themselves to their primary responsibilities without digression to let the state win the war against any form of indiscipline and disobedience.
The government stated further that the officials should always discharge their responsibilities in a manner that the state would not be portrayed in a bad light before the public.
