A four-day refresher course organized through the office of Anambra State Head of Service for administrative and accounting officers aimed at enlightening them on established guidelines for placement of promoted and retiring Officers in the state civil service has ended with a call on the benefitting officers to hold firmly to the knowledge garnered from the course and apply them effectively.

In a remark during the workshop organized at the Jerome Udorji Secretariat Complex, Awka, the State Head of Service, Barrister Harry Udu, said there was urgent need to bridge the knowledge gap among the young poorly mentored officers in the service.

He advised young officers to cultivate the habit of patiently understudy superior officers and endeavor to ask questions for optimum service delivery.

Barrister Udu thanked the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano for approving funds for the training course notwithstanding the economic realities of the country.

On her part, the Director of training, office of the Head of Service, Barrister Nwando Obiano said that the training came on the heels of the audit report which showed some anomaly in officers’ promotion, remuneration and benefits of both active and retired staff.

He pointed out that the refresher course will equip the administrative and accounting officers with the most current method of placement of both promoted and retiring officers.

Some of the participants including Mr. Ifeanyi Ikechukwu, Anthony Chinweike and Mr. Cletus Okafor said the training will guarantee effectiveness in the service.
They thanked Governor Obiano for giving them such opportunity.
