Kwara 2023 : I’ll focus on revitalizing our civil service if elected – Yaman

The Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State, Alh Shuaib Abdullahi Yaman has said he will focus on revitalizing civil service in the state. 

Yaman stated this in a statement issued by his special adviser on media and strategy, Alh Abdulwahab Oba on Tuesday. 

He said he will revitalize the state civil service by restoring the hopes and aspirations of career officers whose promotions have been largely politicized. 

According to him, I’ll be the governor to ensure that appointment and deployment are based on competence, skills, knowledge, training, speciality, and continuous training and retraining of staff. The civil servants will be allowed to play their statutory role as policy drivers. 

“I have the vision to raise the bar of our collective achievements as a state with our civil service. I have the vision to raise the bar for their performance and contribution to the positive story of our state. I have the vision to motivate our civil servants to become what our celebrated civil servants of old were: celebrities in their rights!”

“To achieve these, we shall be truthful and plain in our dealings with civil servants. We shall not deceive them. We shall not promise them what we can not achieve”

“Our administration’s concern for civil servants shall extend to the pensioners. Concerted efforts shall be made not only to pay their pensions but also to bring them to par with the existing minimum wage. Everything shall be done to pay arrears of their gratuity within the shortest time possible, while we shall invest in and evolve a pre-retirement training program to ensure they live a meaningful life after their meritorious service to the state.” He concluded.
