Delta Speaker tasks parliamentary staff on productivity to justify financial autonomy

Mr Sheriff Oborevwori, Speaker of Delta House of Assembly, has urged workers at the assembly to scale up their productivity to justify the financial autonomy granted to the legislature.

He reminded them that the financial autonomy also required hardwork and dedication to duty.

Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori,

“This training could not have come at a better time than now. I say this with all seriousness. We should be aware that the financial autonomy we now enjoy comes with higher responsibility and expectations.

“As bureaucrats, you are the driving force of the assembly service. Therefore, it is expected that your work ethics must be unassailable.

“With the turn of things, most functions hitherto performed by the executive on behalf of the three arms of government have now been entrusted on each arm of government to carry out.

“How far and how well the assembly service discharges these functions rest squarely on your shoulders,” he said.

On the essence of the workshop, Oborevwori noted that the training was aimed at improving the efficiency and productivity of the assembly workforce.

He advised the participants, who were officers on grade level 12 and above, to take the training seriously in order to impact positively on their output at work.

While congratulating the staff for the passage of the Financial Autonomy Bill, the Speaker said: “I believe the Assembly Service Commission has now been well positioned by Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa, to effectively discharge its responsibilities.
