‘No room for Corruption,’ Obaseki tells new Commissioners

Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo on Thursday swore-in 18 commissioners, saying that “there is no room for corruption in his administration’’.

Addressing the commissioners made up of 15 males and 3 females at Government House, Benin, the governor said their appointment was a call to service and not to make money or accumulate wealth.

He said the commissioners were nominated by their various local government councils and they should live up to the confidence reposed on them.

“We expect that you live above board; your confirmation by the Edo House of Assembly goes to show that you were found worthy to serve the state.

“This is the time to build institutions; it is not a time to think about self, but to work for the common good of the people.

“Bring your experiences to bear and treat staff with respect and follow laid down rules,’’ he said.

Obaseki urged the commissioners to come up with innovative solutions that would help increase internally generated revenue in the state.

The governor also tasked them on loyalty, accountability and to key into the ICT initiative of the present administration.
