The Edo State Government has commenced the evaluation and assessment exercise for the promotion of workers in the state’s civil and public service.

The Edo State Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa Esq., who disclosed this to journalists, in Benin City, during training/evaluation exercise for the workers, said the government is committed to sustaining reforms in the civil and public service to enhance optimal service delivery.

Okungbowa said the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration will sustain efforts at retooling workers with the right skills and knowledge to provide quality service to Edo people.

He further disclosed that Governor Obaseki had earlier granted approval for the 2020 and 2021 promotions in order to ensure that all outstanding promotions are cleared, thereby guaranteeing that promotion in the civil and public service is done as and when due.

Resource persons were on ground to furnish participants on grade level 07 to 16 who are eligible for promotion with information aimed at assisting them to deepen their understanding of the standards in the service and the new ways of working in the service, so as to improve efficiency and productivity.

Okungbowa stated that “the Government will always place the welfare of workers as a top priority as every Edo worker is valuable and essential for the programme and policies of Government to effectively strive.”
