The Delta State Local Governnent Service Commission has solicited continued partnership with the media in keeping the populace well informed about the activities of the establishment.
The Commission’s Chairman, Hon Joseph Otirhue, while addressing members of the Indigenous Correspondents’ Chapel of the Delta State Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) who paid him a courtesy visit, appreciated the key role of the media in the success of any organisation through publicity.
Hon Otirhue said the envisaged partnership would go a long way in keeping the people, particularly the rural populace, abreast of the much the Commission was doing to support the Stronger Delta vision of the Okowa administration and how the policies and programmes of the Commission could be beneficial to them.
He revealed that the Commission had remained focused on driving its core mandates of training and retraining, discipline and welfare of local government employees in its avowed determination to improve efficiency and productivity in local government administration.
The LGSC boss commended the visiting journalists for their contributions to the success story of the Commission and urged them to explore more areas of collaboration with the establishment, while assuring them of continued support.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Chapel, Comrade Andy Emephia, said the visit was to seek closer working relationship with the Commission, which he noted was dealing directly with staff of the third tier of government in the rural areas where the Chapel members had comparative advantage in their reportage.
Comrade Emephia used the opportunity to thank the Commission’s Chairman for identifying with the Chapel in some of its activities in the past and sued for the sustenance of the relationship.
