HoS Emphasizes Training In Repositioning Imo Civil Service


The Head of Service, Imo State (HoS), Raymond Ucheoma has stressed the importance of training and retraining in repositioning the state’s Civil Service for effective service delivery.

Ucheoma, a lawyer made the remarks at a workshop for top management officers in the civil service held in Owerri on Wednesday.

He maintained that regular trainings and retraining was crucial for promoting a healthy public service, as it provides the participants opportunity to obtain, improve and retain skills, knowledge , tools and other resources needed to operate efficiently and achieve results.

The HoS promised to raise a cream of civil servants who have carriage, knowledge and courage to uphold the ethics of the civil service.

He therefore challenged the participants to strive to advance in knowledge in order to progress in life endeavors.

Ucheoma said; “You cannot belong to the Imo State Civil Service without having something that people could appreciate and emulate.

“We need to establish a quality of life that nobody could talk down on us. I challenge you to believe in the present administration of Senator Hope Uzodimma and the country, and believe that you are the change that we look forward to”.
