CHAIRMAN, Local Government Service Commission (LGSC), Awka, Peter Egenti has reaffirmed the commission’s determination to transform the local government system in spite of the huge challenges.

Dr. Egenti restated this in various interactive sessions held recently at the commission.

Addressing the Think Tank, a committee set up by the commission’s board, the chairman commended the body for its immense contributions towards achieving the set objectives of the commission.

He urged the committee members to live up to expectation and sustain their momentum of implementing ideas generated from their in-depth knowledge of the weaknesses of the system.

In another interactive session between the Heads of Local Government Administration, Heads Personnel Management and the board members of the commission, organised to discuss complaints, conflicts and indiscipline, Dr. Egenti emphasised that there will be no peace and harmony, discipline and productivity in the local government system without strict adherence to the due process and regulations guiding the staff in the system.

He called on the participating staff to ensure that they are familiar with the scheme of service, Local Government Staff regulations, existing circulars and job schedule of their departments in order to avoid/prevent unnecessary conflicts.

Also speaking at the occasion, the Commissioner 3 of the commission, Ugochukwu Ezeani, highlighted the dangers of conflict in administration and advised them to work harmoniously as technocrats in the system for effective service delivery.
