Obaseki Says No Plan To Sack Workers In Edo

Governor Godwin Obaseki,says his administration has no plans to either sack or retrench workers in Edo State

I have spoken to the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to collaborate with us on this, and also organise training for you people",he cautioned them.

The governor added experts would be engaged to the workers in their various areas of specialization aimed at blocking the leakages in the system for the state to move forward

His words,“I will bring in experts to train you in your areas of specialization, and make sure that all leakages are blocked to enable us to move our state forward.”

Also speaking, the  State Head of Service and Chairman, Transition Committee Chairman, Barr. Anthony Okungbowa said that the Obaseki 's administration was reviewing rules of service and developing performance management to assess level of productivity of  individual worker
