Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, Lagos State governor, on Friday restated his administration’s commitment to reforms in the state civil service, saying that only a viable workforce can drive the policies and programmes of any government.

The governor spoke when he received Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, the Head of Service of the Federation, who was on a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Ikeja, saying he remains a strong supporter of public service reforms.
Ambode added that any government desirable of making positive change in the lives of the citizenry must have a motivated and trained workforce.

According to him: “We do not have any choice, because the engine room of whatever it is that is our policy or programme is actually in the public service and in the civil service, so it is important that we must tag along on the same wave length with all the civil servants for us to be able to achieve all the programmes our party, the APC has decided to put across to all Nigerians.”

He assured Mrs. Oyo-Ita of his administration’s continuous support to enhance the partnership between the state and federal government in the areas of training and retraining of public servants, saying that it was germane to ensuring continuity in governance.
