In its further bit to rejuvenate the state civil service, the Nasarawa State Government, said it will organize a training session for over 130 newly appointed administrative officers drawn across the 13 local government areas of the state next week.
Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, disclosed this while flagging off a two-day workshop for 150 directors, at the Government House, on Wednesday.
While recalling that the previous administration of Senator Umaru Tanko Al-makura gave the approval for the recruitment of 130 fresh graduates as administrative officers, the Governor added that his administration went further to implement the decision.
Engineer Sule explained that the fresh graduates, 10 each from each of the 13 local government areas, were brought into the civil service to help the directors, who are mostly mid-career officers, to grow and to re-establish the civil service.
The Governor further disclosed that he has given approval also for the administrative officers to be trained, in line with the determination of his administration to launch Nasarawa State on the part of progress and socioeconomic development.
“If these people are trained, you have people who you can carry along with you, for them to grow and now we can have what is called civil service and that is the dream,” Engineer Sule told participants at the training.
