VP Wants An Efficient Civil Service For National Devt

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says the public sector is critical for national development and good governance.

Osinbajo stated this on Monday at the commissioning of the new multi billion-naira civil service secretariat complex in Asaba, Delta State capital, which was named after the Asagba of Asaba ( traditional ruler of Asaba), Prof. Chike Edozien.

He earlier commissioned an 8.5MW Power Plant with a 25km distribution network in Asaba which is right behind the new secretariat.

The VP, who was received at the Asaba airport by the Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanvi Okowa, described the commissioning as historic, “because the seat of the civil service of any arm of government anywhere in the world is usually one of the major monuments enshrining not just the power, but also the splendour of the authority of govt.”

The Vice President who also described the new secretariat as a state-of-the-art, functional, and befitting secretariat complex, said it was befitting that the State decided to immortalize one of the State’s & Nigeria’s most illustrious sons.

He commended Delta State Governor for recognizing the critical role of the public sector.

Osinbajo had earlier paid a courtesy call to the Palace of the Asagba of Asaba where he described the traditional ruler as a bridge builder who brings people together.

In his remarks at his palace, the Asagba of Asaba, thanked the VP and the State Gov for the recognition given him.

“As the VP of this great country, Nigeria, we know you as a very distinguished and eminent supporter of law, and we know you as a pastor of the Redeemed Church. Put together, we can say that with all these qualifications & experience, you are a wise man.

Gov. Okowa thanked Osinbajo for the gesture and referred to him as “a true statesman and an uncommon leader.”
