Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi has sworn-in Bamidele Agbede as the new Head of Service in the state with a charge to promote responsive and efficient civil service.
Fayemi, at the inauguration ceremony on Monday, admonished Agbede to sustain government transformation agenda in the civil service.
He urged the new HoS to sustain the feat of his predecessors and use his experience in the public service to demonstrate capacity in rallying all civil servants behind the incoming administration.
Fayemi disclosed that his administration had institutionalised a process driven structure to ensure merit in emergence of best officers into top civil service positions.
Fayemi said the seamless and rancour-free transition between the former HoS and the new one, has further reinforced his administration’s quest for professionalism, due process and deliberate intention to restore values, dignity and honour into the civil service.
He commended the immediate past HoS, particularly for making appreciable progress in reforming the civil service for effective service delivery.
