Commissioner for Public Utilities, Mr Emeka Ezenwanne, has directed staff members of his ministry to be alive to their responsibilities.
Addressing a cross section of the management and staff members at the Ministry’s Conference Room, Awka, Mr Ezenwanne urged them to shun absenteeism, lateness to duty and truancy in order to move the ministry forward.
He reminded them of the importance of adhering strictly to Civil Service Rules and Regulations, stressing that they should imbibe a culture of hard work and dedication to duties as a mark of appreciation to Gov. Willie Obiano’s kind disposition to issues bordering on their welfare.
The commissioner condemned the attitude of some staff members, who he said would not come to work, unless there was verification exercise, important meetings or when there would be something to share. He called for attitudinal change.
The commissioner decried infighting among some staff members, urging them to always feel free to approach their colleagues when offended for peaceful and amicable resolution of conflicts.
The commissioner, then, urged them to always treat files on their tables with dispatch.
In a speech, the Acting Permanent Secretary in the ministry Rev. Polycarp Amanzechukwu commended the commissioner for carrying the staff along in the discharge of his duties, assuring him that they would remain loyal and dedicated to duties.
The Head of Administration, Mrs Gladys Okafor, thanked the commissioner for celebrating the staff members during the Christmas period and prayed God to reward him abundantly.
The meeting featured a prayer session conducted by Rev Amanzechukwu. (MOI)
