The chairman urged ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) of government to emulate State House in resuscitating the practice of appreciating the best skills and abilities in the service.

He commended the management of State House for reviving the culture of rewards and recognition for deserving civil servants, who have distinguished themselves in public service.

“It is an old tradition in the public and civil service that people that have moved to other endeavours need to be recognized and encouraged.

“They need to be reminded to continue with the good work they have done in their new places of assignment,” he said in a statement issued Sunday by Abiodun Oladunjoye, Director (Information), State House.

The event hosted by the Permanent Secretary, State House, Tijjani Umar, was attended by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment, Kachollom Shangti Daju, and the Solicitor-General of the Federation and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, Beatrice Jedy-Agba.
