The Deputy Governor gave the assurance when he spoke through the Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa Esq at a public lecture organized by the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria(CPM),in Benin City.

According to him, “CIPM is one professional body that has distinguished itself over the years and contributed meaningfully towards human capital development in Nigeria.”

He stated that “the theme of the public lecture, ‘Leveraging Human Capital For Sustainable Development and Growth’ is very apt and in line with the vision of the present administration that a motivated workforce has the capacity to contribute its quota to the sustainable growth and development of society and the country at large”.

“It is instructive to underscore the fact that for a professional body like yours to be relevant in the dynamic environment of the Nigerian society, public lecturers of this kind are expedient for members and relevant stakeholders to brainstorm on issues of national Interest and proffer solutions where necessary on the way forward.”

Shaibu added: “as a Government, the present administration accords priority to building human capacity as well as providing a conducive work environment and necessary tools and equipment for its workforce and personnel.”

“As we speak, the present administration has made giant strides and recorded monumental achievements in its transformation agenda in the civil and public service as part of the deliberate efforts at motivating its personnel for the actualization of Making Edo Great Again, (MEGA) Agenda”.

“Edo State is the only State in Nigeria that pays it workers 40k minimum wage; prompt payment of salaries and pension on the 26th of every month; regular training and retraining of workers for optimal performance; building of infrastructure that provides conducive work environment as well as necessary tools and equipment for its workforce and personnel, including introduction and implementation of E-governance in the conduct of government business”.

The Deputy Governor “reiterated the commitment of Edo State Government towards the welfare, security of lives and properties of our citizens”, while congratulating the Chairman of the Governing Council and members for the event.

Speaking earlier, Chairman of CIPM, Edo State Branch, Mr. Osahon Omole noted with concern the sordid state of the Nigerian economy which he described as “Japa economy”,compared to the famine experienced by the Israelites who fled to Egypt”
