The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the appointment of Mr Bode Agoro as the 22nd Head of Civil Service of the state.
Agoro’s appointment is to take effect from September 30, 2023.
The announcement was made by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, via his handle on X (formerly Twitter) late Friday night.
According to Akosile, in reference to a circular by the outgoing HOS, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, he noted that Agoro joined the Lagos State Public Service on July 1, 2003, before being appointed as a Permanent Secretary, Lands Bureau, on August 3, 2015.
Okunola enjoined all the state’s civil servants to support and cooperate with the new HOS to consolidate the achievements of his predecessors.
Akosile stated, “To this end, all public servants are hereby enjoined to accord the newly appointed Head of Service all necessary support required to consolidate on the achievements of his predecessors and, by extension, take the state public service to greater heights.
“Without prompting, all public servants are expected to consistently exhibit the time-tested public service values such as commitments, integrity, transparency, accountability, probity and loyalty in the discharge of their assigned responsibilities.
“While wishing the new Head of Service a most rewarding and successful tenure of Office, Accounting Officers are hereby enjoined to take note of this circular and give it the widest publicity it deserves.”Follow us on social media
