BENIN CITY – The Edo State Ministry of Justice has concluded plans to organise a retreat for its staff, aimed at setting an agenda and developing work plans to enable the ministry meet its statutory obligation to the people and government of Edo State.
The Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Oluwole Iyamu SAN, in a chat with journalists, said the retreat will be held at the John Odigie Oyegun Training Centre on Tuesday, October 12, 2021.
According to him, “The Edo State Ministry of Justice, under the new Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice has hit the ground running. The retreat is being organized to that effect in pursuit of the new assignment. We are organizing a full-day retreat, which encompasses a performance review, agenda-setting, and future work plans for the entire ministry in line with the charge given by His Excellency, Mr. Godwin Obaseki at the swearing-in of new commissioners on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.”
He said the programme will involve in-depth and rigorous review sessions and presentations across all the departments in the Ministry, as well as team-building activities designed to foster synergy in what is the largest law chamber in Edo State.
“Internal and external resources persons are scheduled to be involved in the process and it is expected that at the end of the day, a clear roadmap for improved service delivery to Edo government and people by the ministry would have been established.”
He observed that even though he had spent years in the Ministry of Justice in other capacities, “it was time to translate the experiences gained over the years, the challenges of the period which we are going through and the Making Edo Great Again (MEGA) Agenda of Mr. Governor into a tangible plan of action towards producing a Ministry of Justice that serves the needs of Edo people, leverages on all available technologies and is in compliance with world-class best standards.”
