The Delta State Commissioner for Economic Planning, Dr. Kingsley Emu, has advised SEEFOR project supervisors currently working on the Labour Intensive Public Works Scheme of the project to be diligent in the delivery of their job and share good practices among themselves.
Dr. Emu, who gave charge in Asaba at a-one –day workshop organized for SEEFOR Supervisors across the state, noted that the state government was very passionate about the successes of all ongoing projects.
While remarking that the workshop was apt, he said it would ensure that supervisors understood effectively their roles in the project in order to foster daily improvement towards ensuring that the contracts awarded to contractors were executed according to specifications in the Bill of Engineering Measurement (BEME).
He noted that all the lectures delivered on the rudiment and technicalities of job schedule should be strictly adhered to, warning that supervisors were found wanting on their duty post would be sanctioned.
Speaking on attitudinal change, the Commissioner informed the supervisors that it was their responsibility to ensure that residents were equipped with the knowledge of the positive results of the projects as well as encourage ownership and maintenance of projects in their domains.
Dr Emu encouraged supervisors to engage in self-development while doing their job, noting that they could find gaps that needed to be filled and thereafter bring up strong proposals to the government through SEEFOR Project that could increase sustainability of the projects.
He said that supervisors should inculcate the habit of being prudent in their spending as a virtue that could take them higher in life.
Some of the supervisors applauded the state government for the initiative, noting that before their engagement by SEEFOR Project, they were idle but with the intervention they had not only been gainfully employed but also equipped to become self-reliant after they exited the project.
They said that the workshop was impactful as they now understood better, their roles and duties as supervisors and pledged to be more energized to deliver on their duties as SEEFOR Project Small Public Works Supervisors.
