THE Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has tasked the over 100, 000 state’s civil servants to come up with new ideas and innovation that would strengthen development in the state.
Ambode added that coming up with such ideas will add value to the implementation of government policies and programmes which would benefits residents in the state.
The governor, who made the appeal yesterday, while swearing in the five newly appointed Permanent Secretaries at the EXCO chamber, Lagos House, Ikeja, noted that it would assist them in their career.
He noted that though they have been creative over the years but there is need for more to sustain and strengthen the achievement recorded in the state.
“I am not unaware of the fact that the Permanent Secretaries are supported by hard working Directors and other officers down the ladder of the Civil Service
“I want to use this opportunity to reaffirm my appreciation and gratitude to the entire members of the State Public service for their dedication to duty,” he said.
