Minister Hails Staff For Bagging 'Best Performing Civil Servants' Awards

The Honourable Minister of State, Power, Goddy Jedy-Agba, OFR has hailed Mrs. Nwachukwu Faustina and Mr. Sunday Itime, both civil servants attached to his office for bagging the Ministry's Senior and Junior Staff Best Performing Staff awards.

The awards were presented to them by the permanent Secretary, Engr. Nebeolisa Anako, on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Power in a ceremony held at the Ministry's conference hall few days ago to mark this year's Civil Service week.

While Nkwachukwu received the Best Performing Senior Senior Staff of the year award, Itime was awarded as the Ministry's overall best performing junior staff. 

The Minister, in a brief ceremony held in his office to receive the awardees, commended them for being good ambassadors of his office and showing good example to others.

Jedy-Agba said that he wasn't surprised that they were singled out for the recognition as he has been very impressed with their commitment and dedication to work since he assumed office. 

According to him, "I want to congratulate you for the awards. As I always admonish all of you, a lot of people out there are watching you. I've been watching you as well and I can say that the awards are very deserving. I thank you for being good ambassadors of this office".

He encouraged them that "every opportunity you get to serve, serve with all your heart. Be very committed. Don't say it's government work,  you can do anyhow. There's dignity in service and serving deligently pays, I'm a living testimony".

Reflecting on the award, Nwachukwu who spoke for herself and Itime, said that they were a reflection of what the Minister represents and promised to continue to remain dedicated to service. 

She said that "we dedicate the awards to the Honourable Minister because we were able to achieve the honour because of what we're learning from him. The truth is that, staff are always a reflection of their principals so, if our Boss was someone that shows nonchalant attitude to work, it would have reflect on us.

In the past three years, we've learned a lot from him. The Minister is always the first to come to work and the last to leave. Even when he's down in health, he'll still struggle to come to work. We've had the privilege to work with many Ministers but the experience with him is different. We're grateful to him and the management of the ministry this huge recognition".
