The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mrs Ibukun Odusote today tasked newly-employed staff of the Ministry to see their employment as an opportunity to contribute to national development and add value to the Federal Civil Service.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, at the induction course organised by the Ministry for these newly recruited officers into the Federal Civil Service, Mrs Odusote charged the officers to be patriotic Nigerians, strive to bring glory to the nation by imbibing positive work ethics and shun all vices inimical to the service.
“You are different from the person sitting by you because where you are going is not where the next person is heading, you must remain focused and add value to yourself through capacity development in both computer application, labour laws and Public Service Rules,” the Permanent Secretary advocated.
Speaking further, she enjoined the inductees to avail themselves of the opportunity provided by the induction course to be abreast of information on basic principles and ethics of the Federal Civil Service.
In her words, “make the best of this induction course. We have done our part by organising this course, and it behoves on you to reciprocate this kind gesture by not wasting this opportunity as we have put together eminent resource persons to prepare you on your voyage into the Federal Civil Service.”
In his remarks, the Director, Human Resources Management, Mr Ajibola Ibrahim said the induction course was aimed at building the capacity of the staff for the task ahead.
Speaking on behalf of the inductees, Ayokunle Oluborode appreciated the Federal Government for the employment opportunity and the Permanent Secretary for the opportunity to be part of the induction course, believing that it would enhance the efficiency of the newly-recruited staff to deliver on the task ahead.
