We Will Rescue Ekiti Workers From Decadence – Fayemi



The Ekiti State Government has reiterated its commitment to rescuing the Civil Service from the level of decadence experienced under the immediate past administration.

Governor Kayode Fayemi lamented that the public servants during the last administration were demoralized and deprived of service tools for effective performance.

Fayemi said the core values of civil service went to extinction in recent past years with deprivation of a conducive and work friendly environment.

The governor who made this revelation on Tuesday while unveiling the special edition of Fountain Bureaucrat magazine, at the Conference Hall, Governor’s Office, in Ado Ekiti, said, civil servants were not only deprived of deserved welfare packages but were made to suffer indignity and ridicule of high magnitude.

The Governor, represented, by his Deputy, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, pointed out that the public service, being an engine room of governance, deserved to be treated with much dignity and respect.

Fayemi said, “We are all living witness to the level of decadence that the Service sunk during the recent inglorious past.

“An average civil servant was demoralized and disoriented with the inclement and unfair environment of operation.

“Civil servants were not only denied of deserved welfare packages, they were arrogantly deprived of tools of service.

“In many instances, they were made to suffer indignity and ridicule of high magnitude.

“For whatever it takes, the public servants do not deserve these inhuman treatments and never again will such indignity be allowed to befall its public service.”

Fayemi maintained that the template to restoring the core values of civil service has been entrenched in the four pillar of his administration.

The governor expressed confidence that the content of the publication would complement government’s vision of a mobile, creative, innovative and cerebral public service.

“I am equally convinced that the editorial policy of the journal is tailored towards having an institutionalized service that would ease the task of governance through well researched articles and well informed opinions that would positively shape the orientation of the service to better the lot of the average man on the State,” he added.

Fayemi assured that the state government would continue to support the publication and ensure that it was well positioned to be a journal of note across states in the federation.

Earlier, Mr Segun Omolayo while reviewing the magazine revealed that the latest edition was not only special because it was anchored on the four pillar of Governor Fayemi or his achievements in the first hundred days in office but for its quality content.

In her speech the acting Head of Service, Mrs Peju Babafemi, who is also the publisher of the Journal, explained, that Fountain Bureaucrat would continue to serve as a veritable platform and tool for sharing knowledge and experience among public servants.
