The director overseeing the office of the permanent secretary (PS) of the ministry of power, Mr Emmanuel Otu, has charged staff of the ministry not relent in developing themselves in all ramifications so that they would continue to remain relevant in the world that according to him is ever changing.
The acting PS handed down the charge in his keynote address while declaring open a 2-day workshop organised by the department of reform for officers on great levels (GLs) 04-12 at the ministry’s headquarters in Abuja.
Speaking during the workshop, Otu urged the civil servants to always have the mindset they can always improve.
“One thing I use to tell myself is that the day I say to myself I have known everything is the day I will start going backwards, because new things are coming up on a daily basis,” he said, adding that those do not aspire to catch up in life by updating themselves risk becoming stale and being overtaken by those behind them.
He urged them to endeavour to pick up the guidelines book for civil servants and read as it would help them carry out their assignments appropriately throughout their service years and beyond.
