Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has said that the public sector is critical for national development, very vital for governance, and quality public service delivery.
Prof. Osinbajo stated this on Monday at the commissioning of the new multi-billion-naira civil service secretariat complex in Asaba, Delta State capital, which was named after the Asagba of Asaba (traditional ruler of Asaba), Prof. Chike Edozien.
The VP, who described the new secretariat as a state-of-the-art, functional, and befitting secretariat complex, said it was befitting that the state decided to immortalize the name of one of Delta State’s and Nigeria’s most illustrious sons.
Earlier, the Vice President had also commissioned an 8.5 Mega Watts Power Plant with a 25 kilometers distribution network in Asaba right behind the new secretariat.
In his remarks at his palace, the Asagba of Asaba, Prof. Chike Edozien, who thanked Okowa for the recognition given him, described Vice President Osinbajo as a wise man.
Also, at the commissioning of the Secretariat, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa while welcoming Prof. Osinbajo to the State, noted that the Vice President is a true statesman and an uncommon leader.
