Rivers State: L.G. Service Commission Ends 3-day Workshop

The Rivers State Local Government Service Commission has ended her 3-Day workshop on Work Ethics and Organizational Productivity for Local Government staff on grade levels 04-07. The event was organized for L.G.As of Rivers West Senatorial District, which took place at the Main Hall of Rivers State Ministry of Justice, Port Harcourt, between 10 to12 October, 2012.
Speaking at the opening session of the workshop; Barr. Franklin Ajunwo, Rivers State NULGE President, urged the participants to take everything that was taught, seriously, pointing out that people spent money on transportation and accommodation, to be part of such workshop in Abuja.
He thanked the commission, and called on government to provide adequate funds for the commission, to do more for its workers, adding that the commission has set-up a procedure that will assist every LGA staff.
In his address, the chairman of Rivers State LGA Service Commission, Chief Azubuike Nmerukini JP, represented by Chief Jonah Tamuno JP, sympathized with the people of Ahoada and Andoni LGAs over the flood disaster that affected the areas and urged the participants to pray for them.
He said the amended Local Government Law No. 3 of 1999 Section 48 and 49 has mandated the LGA Service Commission, among others as one of its functions to train and re-train staff of the LGA service. Chief Nmerukini, added that the major concern of the training was to create awareness in the staff, as regards to the civil service ethics, in order to improve their productivity.
He enjoined participants to make use of the much expended resources on the workshop to have a change of approach to work which according him, will be inline with the theme of the workshop.
