“As a retired permanent secretary myself, I recall working very closely with both the newly-appointed and the former head of service.
“I have no doubt that the Plateau Civil Service will benefit immensely from the wealth of experience which Hyat has built over the years both as an outstanding Civil Engineer of repute and a seasoned civil servant,” he said.
