For the umpteenth time, Ekiti State Deputy Governor Prof. Modupe Adelabu has again rallied support for the administration of her boss, Dr, Kayode Fayemi.
She urged civil servants to put in their best for the Fayemi-administration to achieve its dream of lifting Ekiti State to a loftier height.
The deputy governor spoke at the New Year get-together party she organised for them at her residence in Ado-Ekiti for workers deployed to her office.
Mrs. Adelabu, who described civil servants as the engine room of the government urged them not to compromise on diligence, reminding them of the vital roles they have to play for the success of any government.
She showered encomiums on the staff of her office staff, who she described as hard working and cooperative since her assumption of office.
Assuring that workers’ welfare will always be accorded priority attention, the deputy governor urged the workers to support the governor’s efforts at ensuring that Ekiti ranked amongst the best states in the country.
In his sermon, the Chairman of Christ Apostolic Church, Ekiti Districts Coordinating Council, Pastor Olu Eyebiokin, admonished workers to be faithful in the discharge of their duties.
The cleric identified indolence and unfaithfulness as the bane of the society, which he counselled both leaders and followers to eschew. According to him, the diligent and the faithful would be rewarded accordingly both by men and God.
He cautioned them to be wary of their actions, pointing out that a government is rated by the actions of individuals.
Pastor Eyebiokin also urged the deputy governor to continue to be faithful and loyal to the governor as well to sustain her positive standing in the public.
The Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Deputy Governor, Mr. Babatunde Alokan, who opened the floodgate of testimonies, described the deputy governor as an amiable personality, whose relationship with members of staff has been more of a mother-and-child relationship rather than a boss and the subordinate.
Others who bared their minds also attested to the generosity and humility of the deputy governor, despite her academic and political
They prayed God to grant her long life and more wisdom, even as they promised never to rest on their oars.
