The newly sworn in Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki  has on Monday,  November  14 announced the appointment of Osarodion Ogie as the Secretary to the State Government.

Also appointed were Taiwo Akerele as Chief of Staff and John Mayaki as interim Chief Press Secretary.

Obaseki had before making the announcement, met with the state Head of Service and Permanent Secretaries.

He confided in the civil service, and pledged that his administration would build a stronger, vibrant, trusted, competent and reliable workforce to meet the challenges ahead.

“I have no doubt about the capacity of the civil service, but we will also need to clear the cog on the wheel of progress,” he added.

The governor said the administration would re-evaluate the recruitment process into the service to ensure that merit and objectivity were not compromised.

He promised to study the report of his transition committee alongside that submitted by the permanent secretaries, before setting up a policy group to outline specific programmes for the administration.

Obaseki noted that the state would not afford a government unable to create value across board, and assured the people of Edo, that he would be a listening governor, who discharges his responsibilities firmly and professionally.

The governor assured that the administration would be fair to all, and would sanction any civil servant found wanting.
