Executive Assistants, Senior Special Assistants and Special Assistants to the Delta State Governor on Project Monitoring have unanimously passed a vote of confidence on the Special Adviser to the Governor on Project Implementation and Evaluation, Honourable Johnson Erijo, for giving the right direction to the Project Monitoring Office.
At their monthly review meeting on Monday in Asaba, the appointees noted that project monitoring in the state had assumed renewed impetus under the watch of Honourable Erijo, prompting one of the Senior Special Assistants, Engineer Emmanuel Mormah, to move a motion for the vote of confidence, which was seconded by an Executive Assistant, Prince Godwin Ejinyere.
The Project Monitoring gurus said they were satisfied with the leadership style of the Special Adviser, pointing out that his humility, open mindedness, dexterity and self discipline had positively influenced the conduct of the affairs of the Office.
They noted that the recent working visit of the Office of Project Implementation and Evaluation led by Honourable Erijo to the State Ministry of Works was thoughtful of a leader with the determination to succeed in driving project monitoring to the next level, adding that the move, which would be extended to other contract awarding MDAs, would assist the Office in delivering on its mandate of ensuring the execution of quality and standard jobs.
The appointees encouraged Honourable Erijo to continue to lead them aright and pledged their loyalty and respect to the authority given to him by the State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, to head the State Project Monitoring Office.
In his reaction, Honourable Erijo thanked his colleagues for the confidence reposed in him and promised to remain equitable, fair and just in running the Office.
Over eighteen of the appointees attended the meeting, which reviewed the activities of the Office so far and charted a new course for improved performance of the monitoring teams.
