The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has said that the best way the state can ensure effective and efficient service delivery and synergy between public and private sector is to engage only the best hands.
Ambode who spoke on Tuesday at Lagos House in Ikeja after swearing-in a new Permanent Secretary and Tutor General for Education District Six, Olabisi Olufunmilayo.
According to him, only officers with credible record of performance would be appointed into leadership positions in the state public service.
The Governor noted that massive investment on education architecture and continued empowering and equipping of teachers were all in a bid to raise next generation of Lagosians who would be ready to take on challenges of the future.
Ambode, while justifying massive investment of his administration on improvement of educational infrastructure and upgrade of curriculum to meet current realities, said that education remains one of the critical tools to combat poverty and secure a better future for the State.
He charged the new appointee to see her appointment as very critical to the future progress of the State, adding that she must add value not only to present administration and the public service, but the State.
He said, “I therefore use this opportunity to demand greater sense of commitment and responsibility from the leadership and the entire workforce in the State public service. You must be open-minded and ready to embrace new and innovative ideas that are consistent with global practices.”
