Obaseki to Fill Civil Service Vacancies with More Technical Manpower 

 Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has said the state government is set to strengthen the civil service with the injection of new blood and more technical manpower through the ongoing recruitment
exercise in the service. Obaseki disclosed this when he received the 2017 Annual Report from the Chairman, Edo State Civil Service Commission, Princess (Mrs.) Ekiuwa Inneh, at the Government House in Benin City. He said the state government is committed to building capacity of civil servants for optimal service delivery. "We are deploying technology in the State Civil Service to digitalize our human resources data for easy analysis. The state would fill vacant positions in the commission to address the needs of the commission and not on a routine basis," Obaseki said. Earlier, Chairman of Edo Civil Service Commission said its staff audit showed that as at December, 31, 2017, the state had 2,822 staff comprising 1,660 males and 1,162 females, noting that there are 11,001 vacancies in the service. She expressed optimism that the report would assist government in planning how to move the Civil Service Commission forward.
