Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has inaugurated a Public Service Review/Restructuring Committee with a charge to critically review existing ministries and extra-ministerial departments in order to make them more effective and result-oriented.
Inaugurating the committee yesterday at the Governor’s Office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Amosun noted that the state remained a trail blazer in all human endeavours, including the public service, where the late Chief Simeon Adebo from Ogun became the first Head of Service in the Western Region.
He said the setting up of the committee was in line with his mission to rebuild the state and achieve the Ogun Standard which sets benchmarks for others.
As part of its Terms of Reference, the committee will identify any department/agency of government that needs to be enlarged, compressed or merged with others due to recent developments.
It will also conduct far-reaching consultations and dialogue with all stakeholders towards preparation of new structure, functions and responsibilities for agencies of government with a view to removing waste, duplication and idleness in government’s operations as well as any other relevant issues pertaining to the assignment.
The governor, while charging the state public service to continue to set a good example for others in the nation, noted that the committee had four weeks from the inauguration date to submit its report.
Responding, the Chairman of the Committee, Chief (Mrs.) Susan Folarin, thanked the governor for the quality of individuals appointed to serve on the committee, describing them as hard-working people.
The six-member committee includes the Chairman, Civil Service Commission, Chief (Mrs.) Susan Folarin, who is the Chairman of the committee, Mr. Adekunle Anwo (a retired permanent secretary), Dr Tunde Olowonyo, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health; Mrs. Yetunde Kujore, Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Establishments and Training; Mr. Oluremi Obayomi, Permanent Secretary, Political Affairs and Administration; and Mr. Kola Ogunlana who will serve as the Secretary of the committee.
