Centre for Ethics rewards commissioner, others for Sterling performance

The Centre for Ethics and Self-Value Orientation (CESVO) has given a recognition award to the Lagos State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Mrs Bolaji Dada and others for their selfless service.

Yakubu Saleh, the Executive Director of CESVO while presenting the award on Wednesday commended the leadership of the ministry and his team for their altruitic gestures and impeccable service that is devoid of corruption.

Saleh said ministry through some of its Empowerment Programmes had helped to alleviate the plight of vulnerable and indigent women in the state.

He said” we live in a country that celebrates mediocrity and inadequacies as the order of the day.I certainly say this affirmatively , as a Director of an organization that is in existence for 15 years now.

“I know fervently well enough that there had been so many misappropriation by Public officials in various positions.

“However a searchlight on activities of the Ministry has changed such narratives that there is hope for our future leaders, owing to their transparency and excellent service delivery”

” We are quite elated with view that your grey hairs as recipients of today’s event,has peaked as symbols of success and productivity in Public Service.

“Remember, the award bequeathed on the Commissioner today, deduces that she is an Integrity Icon of Nigeria which whistleblowers have identified her Ethical leadership at a 71% rating , that invariably makes her an ‘Ethically Grounded Public Servant’ Saleh added.

The commissioner while responding appreciated the organisation for the recognition, adding that the ministry would not relent in it’s effort to empower more women in the state.

“I have come to learn that conscientious Service delivery remains paramount.

” The experience is more like that of a football tournament with the players trying to outwit the opposing team towards a common goal of success.

I certainly do not want to take this opportunity for granted.I sincerely appreciate the exerted efforts by all members of staff for this yield.

“The credence on good conduct as bestowed to the Permanent Secretary and 8 other Directors is a welcome development and i implore for persistence to duty by all, because you never can tell who is watching you,” she said.

The Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Mrs Oluyemi Kalesanwo, who also received a credence for excellence said the gesture only ascribes that the reward for hard work required unrelenting efforts and team spirit, geared towards success.
