Kwara Govt. trains 1,500 workers on productivity and capacity enhancement



Kwara State Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq

The Kwara Government on Tuesday in Ilorin began a capacity enhancement training for 1,500 civil servants who are due for promotion in the state.

The State Head of Service (HOS), Mrs Susan Oluwole, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary (Establishment), Mr Mohammed Ibrahim, during the event’s closing.

In her opening remarks at the occasion, she said the training was to improve the productivity of the civil servants in service delivery.

Oluwole applauded Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq, for approving the conduct of the programme.

She also praised the civil servants for the unrelenting commitment to ensuring efficient service delivery in the state service in spite of the dwindling economy.

Oluwole charged the participants to be very attentive to the lectures in order to achieve the objectives of the programme.

She however warned that anyone who failed the examination after the training would not be promoted to the next grade level.

The HOS also revealed that the state government was currently working with relevant stakeholders towards an acceptable welfare package for the civil servants to meet the current economic reality.

She decried the non-challant attitude of workers to duty and the arbitrary search for a foreign job, to the detriment of available local ones.

The Supervising Permanent Secretary (Service Welfare), Mrs Sabitiu Grillo, appreciated the HOS for organising the training.

She noted that it had provided advantage for workers to enhance efficiency and proficiency in service delivery.

Grillo enjoined the participants to make best use of the opportunity, stressing that its significance would manifest when they are back at their respective places of work.

One of the participants who spoke to our correspondent said the training was an eye-opener, saying it was a breath of fresh air for civil servants in the state.
