Speaking with the committee on the 2014 combined celebration of productivity Award/Civil Service Day slated for Monday, June 23, 2014 in her office, The Head of Service disclosed that “On the order of the State Governor, drivers on the payroll of the State Civil Service have been exempted from the computer laptop purchasing exercise; but after exempting them, many of them still showed up to collect the laptops a development that is counter-productive because they will not pay”

Ikwen who used the occasion to brief the committee which comprise of senior directors on the progress of the computer distribution/training exercise said “its progressing smoothly”.

She said that those billed to exit the service from 2014 and 2015 have been exempted from the exercise and lauded the beneficiaries for the orderly conduct at the distribution/training centers.

The Head of Service urged civil servants in the state to take active part in all activities lined up for the Civil Service Day celebration as a way of showing solidarity with the service which they belong to.
