Lagos State government yesterday assured workers in the state employ of a brighter rewarding future, even after service, saying everything possible would be done to ensure that their over 30 productive years in the state public service would not be in vain.

Muri-Okunola, however, urged public servants in the state to keep up their good attitude to work and continually perform their good job to further the successful implementation of the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda of the present administration.
According to him, the event had presented an opportunity to celebrate public servants who had served the state meritoriously in the last thirty years and above with the hope that the gesture would encourage awardees and other staff to continue to put in their best in the service of the state.
He said: “The objective of the annual award ceremony as you know is the conscious and deliberate celebration of diligence, commitment, hard work and loyalty among public servants in Lagos State as a way of expressing government’s appreciation and gratitude to select members of its workforce.
