Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, on Friday, swore in six new Permanent Secretaries and charged them to make probity and prudence their watchword, as the Chief Accounting Officers and the Administrative Heads of their  respective agencies and ministries.

At the ceremony held at the State Executive Council Chamber, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, Gov Dapo Abiodun enjoined the new Permanent Secretaries to ensure proper management of both human and material resources under their care.

Abiodun, who further charged them to consider and see all members of their ministries as the important catalyst to achieving the greatness in their ministries, departments and agencies, urged them to also ensure a seamless and robust synergy between their ministries and others.

The governor noted that public service has played a huge role in the successes recorded by his administration in the last 28 months, pointing out that it is the responsibility of his government to maintain the stability of "the engine room that sees to the daily routine of government activities".

He added that his administration would continue to ensure placing of the right people in specific areas of leadership where human and material resources of government will be adequately utilized.

This understanding informed the appointment of the six new Permanent Secretaries to fill the existing vacancies", Abiodun enthused.

The governor said that the elevation of the deserving civil servants to the new post comes with a reward from competence, experience, hard-work and dedication, adding "it is also part of our Administration's commitment towards giving good governance that is inclusive and participatory to all the people of Ogun State, irrespective of age, gender, status and location in our dear State".
