The chairman congratulates the officers which comprises 44 Management Staff and 59 Senior Staff who have already received their promotion letters after they emerged successful in the recent first Virtual Promotion exercise conducted by the Commission in conjunction with Public Service Staff Development Centre, (PSSDC).

Describing the Virtual Structured Training Programme (Promotion exercise) as successful, chief Mogaji explained that the mode adopted was born out of the Commission’s desire to comply with the State’s directive on the need to rid the State of Covid-19 pandemic.

“It was a unanimous agreement by all Commissions in the State to conduct a Virtual Promotion exercise in order to comply with the Governor’s directive and the Federal Government’s guidelines on maintaining social distance,” Mogaji stated.

The chairman said, although, virtual assessment is not enough for individual appraisal but can be improved upon to meet up with international standards, he stressed the old method of assessing Officers for promotion is more result -driven.

“There is nothing wrong with Virtual Training but there must be a way to structure the time whereby individual contributions will be better assessed. The strength of individual participants may not be determined within a short period but can be improved upon and restructured in a way that participant can be assessed objectively.”

“The old method was designed to effectively appraise leadership qualities, competence and comportment for better critical assessment of each member of Staff which can not be achieved via Virtual Assessment,” the Commission boss stated. He however agreed that the Virtual Training Programme has satisfied the purpose for which it was formulated, due to the emergence of the novel COVID – 19.
