In order to encourage efficiency and enhance the performance of Officers, the Ministry of Justice, on Tuesday, recognised some of its personnel for discharging their duties meritoriously
In a ceremony presided over by the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Moyosore Onigbanjo SAN and the SolicitorGeneral/ Permanent Secretary at the Conference Room of the Ministry, the recipients were encouraged to see the Awards as a recognition of their diligence to duty, and inspiration for better service delivery at their duty posts.
Onigbanjo acknowledged and expressed pride in the sterling performance of Counsel in the Ministry of Justice, maintaining that the quality of support the State Government gets from the Ministry helps in upholding the rule of Law, hence, the smooth running of the state.
The Attorney- General charged the Awardees to eschew professionalism and hard work, stressing that the recognition accorded them was a way of appreciating their contributions to the Ministry.
In his words, ” Without an excellent team, the work of the State Government will not see the light of the day. The State Government is therefore blessed to have a team of excellent men and women at the Ministry of Justice. Without you, the State Governor will be like a general who has gone to battle without his troops.
I may not be commending all of you personally for your contributions but I must assure you that none of your efforts has gone unnoticed. I have personally been taking records of performances and I can say that you have been on top of your profession”, Onigbanjo declared.
