The Lagos State Government has held a specialised induction/training ceremony for 8,650 newly employed and newly deployed senior officers in the state civil service.

Declaring the induction ceremony open at the Lagos State Public Service Staff Development Centre (PSSDC), Magodo, on Monday, the Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola noted that the ceremony also doubles as a specialised Induction Course of newly employed public service officers on Grade Level seven and above on the core principles of the state civil service.

Represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Public Service Office, Mr. Olasunkanmi Oyegbola, the Head of Service urged the new inductees to leverage the already well-established structure of the state civil service “which is a trailblazer in the country and sub-Saharan Africa”.

He harped on key areas in the service with the ‘KSA’ acronym, which, according to him, stands for “knowledge, skills and attitude,” saying that attitude occupies a prime place among the three as “it determines one’s altitude in service.”

In their goodwill messages, the Permanent Secretary for Establishment and Training, Mr. Olawale Musa; and the Chairperson of the state Health Service Commission, Dr. Atinuke Onayiga charged the inductees to embrace the growth mindset which will propel their performance irrespective of the sector of the service they are deployed.

Earlier, PSSDC’s Director General, Mr. Adekunmilola Adio-Moses said the induction/training consists of the orientation, socialisation, and acquisition of core skills relevant to the inductees’ offices and schedule of service.

Adio-Moses said: “The induction process is hereby tailored to equip you with the essential knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary for your optimal performance. This preparation empowers you to play a pivotal role in the continuous transformation occurring within the state”.

The DG noted that the 8,650 inductees comprise 2,977 education officers; 3,413 health personnel; 87 administrative officers; 117 audit officers; and 144 house officers.

Others include 132 law enforcement officers; 96 fire officers; and 1,597 others.
