Although Imo state is facing financial difficulties, it will send some permanent secretaries to Singapore on a training programme for optimum service delivery in the civil service.
According to the Imo state Head of Service (HoS), Mr. Calistus Ekenze, who spoke after a closed-door meeting between Governor Rochas Okorocha and the permanent secretaries at the Government House in Owerri, the move was to ensure that the state has people in the top echelon to drive the workforce in line with modern realities.
He urged starving workers in the state to be patient as the state awaits the bailout funds.
Meanwhile, TODAY reports that Governor Okorocha has appointed Uche Onwuchekwa as the Special Assistant (Media) to the Deputy Governor, Eze Madumere, and A.J. Emeka for Special Duties.
