Edo State government has secured a partnership agreement with international organisations including the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) for the training of workers in State public service.

The mandate will help in building a globally-competitive workforce” and digitalise the State Civil service for efficient service delivery.

The State governor, Godwin Obaseki said at a Ceremony to mark Workers Day Celebrations held on May 1 every year.

“We have reached an advanced stage in the construction of a building for staff training and have secured partnership with international organisations on capacity building for workers, including the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).

The Governor attributed the contribution of workers in the State to the development strides recorded in the last two and the half years of his administration.

He commended them for their dedication, dexterity and for being part of history towards transforming the State.

He restated the State government’s commitment to paying the new minimum wage of N30,000, stressing that modalities are already in place to ratify the increase.

According to him, “As we Celebrate Workers’ Day, we appreciate the dedication, dexterity and steadfastness of Edo workers in transforming the State. We reiterate our commitment to building a globally-competitive workforce and commit to sustaining revamp of the Civil service.

“We will achieve this by remodelling the workplace, including the State secretariat; transitioning our workers to digital platforms for efficiency and sustaining health and pension reforms to serve them better.”

He reiterated the State government’s decision not to sack workers but to retrain them to be more efficient and abreast with the latest trends in their field of expertise.

He also explained that the pension reforms have ensured that workers are migrated to the contributory pension scheme, which guarantees a better life during active service and in retirement.
