Book, ‘Contract: Policy and Procedure’ launched in Ilorin

A book titled: “Contract: Policy and Procedure” authored by Abdulwahab Hassan Hussein, Assistant Chief Planning Officer, Governor’s office, Ilorin, has been launched, with a call on civil servants to avoid pull down syndrome.
The launching of the 11- chapter and 215 pages book was held at the Governor’s office, Ilorin on Tuesday.
Speaking during the book launch, the Deputy Governor of Kwara State, Mr Kayode Alabi said the present administration is working assiduously to return the lost glory of the civil service.
Commenting on the book, he said it came at a time when it is mostly needed especially when the present administration sees due process as hallmark of governance.
The Deputy Governor who was represented at the event by the Chairman, Kwara State House of Assembly Service Commission, Alhaji Femi Yusuf, urged civil servants to use their time for valuable things so that generations coming behind could remember them for good.
“I want to implore civil servants to join hands with the government to take the civil service to greater height, as the civil service is the engine room of government.
“If those in charge of planning and execution of government projects could follow the procedures as laid down in the book, it would ensure efficient and effective service delivery,” he noted.
In her address, the Head of Service in Kwara State, Mrs Susan Modupe Oluwole, expressed worry over the way and manner in which the civil service had been dragged into the mud.
She blamed the ugly development on failure of civil servants to respect and protect the sanctity of the service through the act of blackmailing and maligning their colleagues in order to get promotion.
She warned civil servants against culture of destruction and blackmailing by guarding their utterances and avoiding pull down syndrome.
She urged the civil servants to strive very hard to bring back the dignity of the service and guard it jealously, warning that destruction awaits those who destroyed others.
She appreciated the author for finding time out of his busy schedules to identify and bridge the gap through the book and recommended the book for all civil servants, adding that the book would serve as guiding principles for efficient and effective service delivery.
