Anambra Government has assured its civil servants of massive training and retraining this year to enhance their capacity for improved productivity.The Head of Service (HoS), Mr Harry Udu, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Awka.
Udu, who commended workers in the state for having resumed fully after the Christmas and New Year break, said they must redouble their efforts.
He said that plans and programmes for the manpower capacity training of the workers had been built into this years’ budget and would be implemented fully when the budget is passed.
Udu said there was generational gap in state public service due to long period of non-recruitment and number of experienced hands that had left service and noted the need to bridge it through training.
He added that there was the need to beef up the manpower in the teaching aspect of the service to make up for the number of experienced teachers who have exited service.
The HoS said that audit was going on to monitor resumption of workers in the state and warned that any worker who had yet to resume would face the rule of service as it would be applied fully.
