The Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) has organised a four-day retreat for newly absorbed enforcement officers of the Agency.


The retreat, which focuses on the principle of work ethics in public service and other cutting-edge topics, is designed to keep the new entrants abreast with the rules of engagement as civil servants.


Speaking at the opening ceremony of the programme held at the Agency’s Auditorium in Ikeja, the General Manager of LASBCA, Arc. Gbolahan Owodunni Oki congratulated the 143 participants on their appointments and charged them to be good ambassadors of the agency and the State in general.


Arc Oki applauded the magnanimity of the Governor for graciously approving their absorption into the state civil service after serving as ad-hoc staff for years.


While advising them on how to behave, speak, dress and act in public as civil servants, Oki charged them to change their orientation from when they were gang members of ad-hoc staff of LASBCA to being civil servants with rules and regulations guiding every engagement.


He implored them to take every opportunity to upgrade and improve themselves while in service as the sky is their limit.

He said, “I implore you to be creative and proactive in the discharge of your assigned responsibilities and be loyal to the State Government and the oath which you have sworn to uphold. This is the best civil service in Nigeria, if not in the entire Africa, with great opportunities for a nobody to become somebody”.


Mr. Joseph Ojo of December 12 Ventures, Facilitator and Human Management Development Consultant, lectured the participants on different topics ranging from transparency, integrity, discipline, loyalty to constituted authorities, tactfulness, honesty, fairness and tidiness. The senior management staff of the agency also spoke to the new intakes on different work ethics.
