The Permanent Secretary, at the ceremony stated that this appointment is testament to the high level of commitment and dedication of the State House staff, and that the newly appointed Permanent Secretaries from the State House are: Obi Vitalis, Keshinro Ismaila and Emanso Okop.

Penpushing further reports that on the Productivity/ Recognition /Staff Reward Ceremony, the Permanent Secretary reiterated the commitment of the State House Management to acknowledge and reward staff members who demonstrate hard work, dedication to duty and value addition in service delivery.

The Permanent Secretary explained that the reward system was a means of encouragement and motivation for other staff to strive for excellence and pledged continuous training and retraining of staff, adding that under the State House digitalisation programme all members of staff would receive necessary training to enhance service delivery.

‘We have already trained no fewer than 500 staff on the digitalisation programme, and in the coming days, every staff from grade level 8 and above will receive further training in groups of 50, Adebiyi disclosed.

‘We just completed our manpower defence at the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation and it went excellently well. Better training and better allowances are coming your way. However, better services are required from you’, he stated.

Penpushing also reports that Adebiyi, however, appealed to the staff to take their health very seriously as their productivity depended heavily on that, emphasizing that the state house clinic is highly rated among healthcare facilities in the MDA’s.

‘The State House Medical Centre is highly rated among healthcare facilities of MDAs in the country. Please, let us take care of our health. Why must we go through avoidable health challenges? Let us avail ourselves of the health facilities available to us, and they are available’, he counselled staff.

Penpushing reports that the Deputy Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Hadejia, congratulated the award recipients and expressed State House Management’s appreciation for the invaluable contributions of every staff member.

The Deputy Chief of Staff explained that the financial reward from the Office of the Vice President was meant to further encourage staff to add value to their job schedules, noting that it was wonderful to meet the men and women who form the backroom and operations of State House.

” It is very wonderful to meet the men and women who form the backroom and operations of State House. Most times it is only the political appointees that are visible, but those who do the heavy lifting behind the scenes are not known and recognised’, he stated.

” I thank the permanent secretary for creating this opportunity for staff to be recognised, and I trust this is something that we can do from time to time to keep up your spirits, and keep you motivated. We absolutely appreciate the work you are doing in State House” he said.
