The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Friday, announced the appointments of Senior Special Assistants (SSAs), saying it will promote inclusive governance and facilitate speedy implementations of government policies.
The Chief Press Secretary to the governor, John Mayaki, disclosed in a statement that the government was interested in fulfilling it’s promise to the people and ensure the state’s government policies are executed across the 18 local governments of the state.
According to the statement, “Those that were selected in this appointment process applied from the Local Government Areas. They are a reflection of the people’s desires, aimed at service delivery”.
“On assumption of office, these carefully selected individuals will be deployed to support the governor in various parastatals, ministries, and agencies across the state.
“They are carefully selected qualified and eligible individuals from the 18 Local Governments, prepared to support the government of Edo in delivering good and quality governance to the people of Edo State.”
While the government congratulated the new appointees, it also admonished them not to celebrate excessively because the government had limited time to deliver on its developmental policies and the task ahead was enormous.
