 Lagos State Governor  Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has revealed that governments and employers who refuse to accept the welfare of the people as the ultimate law is at the risk of ruining their stewardship and the trust of the citizens in governance.
 
  The Governor made this statement at the opening session of the workshop tagged: ‘Vital Interpersonal Skills for Pension Administrators’ organized by the Civil Service Pensions Office (CSPO) of the Lagos State Ministry of Establishments, Training and Pensions held in Lagos.
 
He also said that employers who deny this run the undeniable risk of ruining their enterprise and the trust and devotion of their employees.
 
 The Commissioner, Ministry of Establishments, Training and Pensions, Dr. Akintola Benson who represented the governor  said that Lagos State Government is one of the most notable of governments that believe in this ideal.
 
He stated that the dedication of the Lagos  state government to the welfare of its workforce both during and after service cannot be overemphasized.
 
  Benson said the governor mandated his ministry to embark on a continuous training of the staff of the ministry in order to ensure the delivery of top quality service to the officers of the civil service.
 
The training, he said, was targeted to the need to inculcate and sharpen the vital interpersonal skills that officers of the Civil Service Pensions Office require to properly and fully serve the pensioners and retirees of the State Civil Service.
 
He said: “In addition to fulfilling my duties charged with the responsibility for ensuring the adequate exposure of the civil service to knowledge on an ongoing basis, the activities that have been carried out signify and underscore the governor’s commitment to all matters relating to the welfare of staff, retirees, and pensioners in Lagos State.
 
“In aiming to call attention to, and aid the development of, the vital interpersonal skills that are vital for pension administrators, our trainings will focus on the skills that are not learnt in schools but are important though rarely visible. These are the skills that are less tangible, harder to quantify, challenging to teach and, sometimes, difficult to describe. They include attributes such as etiquette, getting along with others, listening and engaging in small talk”.
