HOS charges workers on productivity, harps on Gov’s vision
ANAMBRA State Head of Service (HOS), Theodora Okwy Igwegbe has charged Anambra State civil servants on productivity.
The charge was made during a meeting held between the staff members and the HOS at the Conference Hall of the office of the HOS at the Jerome Udoji Secretariat, Awka, Tuesday. She also outlined the vision of Gov. Charles Soludo for the workers.
Mrs. Igwegbe charged the workers to remain committed to their duties, saying that the new administration of governance promised changes, which would usher in better and prosperous days in Anambra.
The HOS drew the attention of the workers to the 50 years development plan of the Gov. Soludo’s administration where according to her, service will be transformational and not transactional based.
She noted that civil servants must be willing to accept the changes, which must inevitably take place beginning from moving from the analogue to the digital system of service, urging them to ensure that they become computer literate.
“There will be checks and balances, transparency in service and good reward system based on merit.
“Workers from henceforth will have their appraisal forms filled quarterly so their performances can be fairly ascertained; this would then speak volumes for you during promotion exercises.
“I advise you to get personal score cards where you can assess yourselves on your productive level. The present administration has resolved to work with the civil servants; Gov. Soludo is willing to look into the welfare of workers and also improve their working condition”.
The HOS hinted on the issue of absenteeism and late coming to work, saying that the governor has in his maiden meeting with the permanent secretaries warned that he would always carry out on-the-spot checks on the workers from time to time.
In a vote of thanks, the Director of Public Service, Office of the Head of Service, Mr. Adebayo Ojeyinka thanked the HOS for communicating to the workers the expectations and plans of the governor for the civil service.
Mr. Ojeyinka, then, promised that the workers would work effectively with her in the actualisation of the vision of Gov. Soludo.
