The Lagos State Public Service is set to organize a public lecture for employees on the need to evolve and adopt digital operations which it described as “the remote way of working”.

Lagos State Head of Service, Hakeem Muri-Okunola, announced this on Thursday, at a media briefing to herald the commemoration of the ‘2023 Public Service Week,’ held at the Public Service Office, Alausa, Ikeja.

According to the HoS, the week aims to appreciate public servants and reward extraordinary officers, among other activities.

He reiterated the need for workers to be exposed to a more practical way of maintaining effective service delivery by embracing digitalization.

The HoS made the remarks while giving the highlights on the public lecture, tagged: “Building and Sustaining Digitalized Service,” as one of the activities put together for the commemoration of the week.

“As of today, we all understand the issue around the fuel increase which has actually affected the purchasing power with the fact that civil servants have to come to work through road transportation. Some travel in their private vehicles, while others in public buses.

“So, the topic of the lecture was actually picked in order for civil service to explore the new way of work, the digitalized mode of operations that is going on all over the world, the remote way of working.

“We want to explore how civil servants can work from home. This, we know will require a lot of change in the public service rules and operations. So, it is tailored in order to understand the new way of working all over the world.

“The lecture would be delivered by Mr Olugbenga Dada, Mni, Deputy President, African Association of Public Administrators and Management and the communique would be submitted to the state government for consideration and implementation,” he explained.

The week-long activities according to the HoS, will commence with a special Jumu’ah service at the secretariat Mosque, on Friday, July 7, followed by a free health screening exercise for public servants at Adeyemi Bero Auditorium later in the day.

The health screening will cover blood pressure tests, and cervical/breast/ prostate cancer screening, while a walk for fitness by public servants will take place on Saturday, July 8.

An interdenominational thanksgiving service will take place on Sunday, July 9, at the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa.

Muri-Okunola added that donations/would be made to orphanage homes and charity organisations on Monday, July 10 with the continuation of the free health screening for public servants.

A long service merit award ceremony will also take place on Tuesday, July 11, at the Adeyemi Bero Auditorium.

This will be concluded with the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s lunch with outstanding officers at a date to be announced later.
