Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom today inaugurated the newly constituted State Civil Service Commission.
Performing the ceremony at the New Banquet Hall of the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi, Governor Ortom urged members of the Commission to settle down quickly to discharge their assignment with the fear of God and avoid undue sentiments that could negatively affect their decisions to reorganize the Service.
The Governor who said that the appointees were coming on board at a challenging time, stressed the need for them to be upright and fish out ghost workers as well as those who had retired but were still hiding for fear of economic uncertainties outside service.
He congratulated the Chairman and other members of the Board for their appointment and noted that they were selected based on track record of performance and experience in their service to the father land in both Public and private sectors.
Responding on behalf of members, Chairman of the Board, Professor Jerry Agada thanked the Ortom administration for finding them worthy to serve in such capacity and promised to justify the confidence reposed in them.
The former Minister of State for Education and retired Permanent Secretary in the State, acknowledged the administration for the much it had achieved so far and called on the people to rally round Governor Ortom to succeed.
Chief Keziah Agundu, Sam Agah, Akpa Idyu and Mnyina Agber are members of the inaugurated Civil Service Commission.
