The Lagos State Government has advised workers in the state to exhibit a high sense of duty and responsibility in order to attain excellence in public service.
The Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, gave this advice on Tuesday during the 2022 Long Service Merit Awards organised for 800 public officers in Agidingbi, Ikeja.
Muri-Okunola said the event was designed to recognise and reward diligence, commitment, and loyalty amongst public servants in the state to encourage and motivate other public servants to keep up with the tradition of excellent service.
He said, “The Long Service Merit Awards represent opportunity for us, as a state government, to celebrate public servants who have served the government and people of Lagos State diligently and conscientiously for 30 years or more and in the course of this period, have made significant contributions to the development and prosperity of the state.
“As you receive this recognition awards today, I urge you not to rest on your oars, but continue to exhibit high sense of duty and responsibility, among other qualities and values for which you are being honoured today.”
Muri-Okunola added that government would continue to appreciate the numerous contributions made by public workers to the development of the state.
“While I congratulate and felicitate the proud recipients of today’s awards, let me assure you that the state government fully appreciates your commitment, loyalty, sacrifices, and numerous contributions over the years to the development of the state,” he added.
