No fewer than 861 civil servants in the employment of the Lagos State Government have been honoured with long service merit awards by the Lagos State Government.
The 2020 Long Service Merit Award celebration took place at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos on Friday.
The Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, urged public servants in the state to keep up good attitude to work and continually perform their good job to further the successful implementation of the THEMES agenda of the present administration.
The HoS said the event presented the opportunity to celebrate public servants who had served the state meritoriously in the last 30 years and above.
“The objective of the annual award ceremony, as you know, is the conscious and deliberate celebration of diligence, commitment, hard work and loyalty among public servants in Lagos State as a way of expressing government’s appreciation and gratitude to selected members of its workforce.
“My advice to all the awardees is that you should not rest on your oars, but continue to exhibit the high sense of responsibility, commitment to duty and unalloyed loyalty, which today’s recognition and celebration have been designed to reward,”Muri-Okunola said.
The Secretary to the Lagos State Government, Mrs Folashade Jaji, expressed appreciation to all recipients of the award and commended the state government for giving the opportunity to celebrate those who had served the state meritoriously.
