The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has assured that he will continue to place emphasis on the welfare of the ministry’s staff in order to boost their morale and enhance their productivity.
The Minister said this in Abuja on Tuesday while handing over the keys of two newly-acquired buses to the Joint Staff Union of the ministry.
Alhaji Mohammed, who was accompanied by the Permanent Secretary, Mrs. Ayotunde Adesugba, and other top officials, said the ministry had commenced the process of phasing out old staff buses and replacing them with new ones for the convenience of staff.
Alhaji Mohammed, however, cautioned the operators of the staff buses to handle them with care in order to ensure their durability as well as the safety of the staffers.
In his response, the Chairman, Joint Staff Union in the ministry, Comrade Adam Agwola, expressed appreciation for the gesture and promised that workers would reciprocate by rededicating themselves to duty.
