Akinwumi Ambode
Gov. Lagos State

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has approved N1.25bn for the training of civil servants in 2017.

This was disclosed at the 2017 first bi-annual meeting of the Lagos State Public Service Joint Negotiating Council (JNC) held at the Public Service Staff Development Centre in Magodo on Monday.

The Acting Head of Service, Folashade Adesoye, said the government increased the funds for capacity building of workers from N1bn in 2016 to N1.25bn in 2017.

She said, “The increase is in recognition of the role of human resources in governance and to improve the state workers’ skills and competence.”

The Commissioner for Establishments, Training and Pensions, Dr Benson Oke, said all stakeholders must sustain the existing atmosphere of industrial harmony in the state and transform such harmony into greater productivity.

Oke said the state was committed to a regimen of training and retraining of workers.

He advised the JNC to be committed to the promotion of teamwork, adding that such would make the public service to be more effective.

“I, therefore, call on the JNC to encourage participating officers to regard the forthcoming training as an avenue to improve themselves and contribute to the growth of the Lagos State Public Service,” he said.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
