Lagos Govt Honours 753 Long-Serving Public Servants

The Lagos State Government, on Tuesday, honoured 753 members of the state public service at the 16th edition of its Long Service Merit Award.

The 753 officials were honoured at an event held at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium, Alausa, Ikeja, as part of activities lined up for the 2023 Public Service Week.

The Head of Service, Mr Hakeem Muri-Okunola, said the award ceremony was an opportunity for the state government to recognise “public servants who have meritoriously served the state public service with great dedication, commitment and selflessness in the last 30 years.”

Muri-Okunola said the award, which was initiated to “deliberately recognise and reward diligence, commitment and loyalty” among public servants, was also aimed at motivating public servants to be more dedicated to serving the state.

While congratulating the recipients on their achievements, the HoS urged them “not to rest on your oars but rather to continue to exhibit the high sense of responsibility, unparalleled commitment to duty and unalloyed loyalty, which are the qualities and values for which you are being recognised and honoured today.”

He added, “Let me commend you for the unwavering commitment, professionalism, perseverance, innovations and initiatives you have all exhibited in executing the numerous tasks assigned to you since joining the service.

“I dare say that you are all worthy ambassadors of the Lagos State Public Service; you have been mentors, confidants and role models to many and your influence extends far beyond the boundaries of your daily work.”
