The Ondo State Government would no longer approve the deployment and transfer of any erring Officer from non-ministerial and organisations outside the Civil Service to the main stream of the State Civil Service.

This is to curtail the infiltration of several culture that are alien to the civil service which has been negatively affecting the entire system and the productivity of the state Civil Servants.

The state Head of Service, Mr Dare Aragbaiye, who made this known while playing host to the Commissioners in the State Civil Service Commission in his office in Akure, said rather than pushing the erring Officers to the main stream of the civil service such organisations should enforce its regulations discipline the Officers.

Mr Aragbaiye stated that the state government has not been able to recruit people into the civil service due to the dwindling resources of government which is also responsible for non approval of inter-state transfer of Officers from other states to Ondo State.

While calling on Workers and Pensioners to support the state government in the fight against issues of workers absconding from their duty posts and all forms of corruption in the system, the Head of Service reiterated the commitment of Governor Akeredolu to training and retraining of Public Servants in the state to attain optimum level in the performance of their duties.

Earlier in his address, the Chairman of the state Civil Service Commission, Dr. Afolabi Adewakun emphasized the need to work in synergy with the office of the Head of Service to ensure best practices in the Civil service and enhance better delivery of government policies and programmes to the people of the state.

Dr Adewakun said the Commission would continue to interact with the Head of Service on issues bothering on the Workers interest, particularly varying aspect of their welfare that are more than payment of salary and allowances.

Other issues discussed include inter cadre transfer, conversion, promotion, discipline and recruitment among others which they said would reposition the state civil service to the path of international best practices.
