In order not to have their career progression hampered, the Lagos State government has charged the over 700 newly recruited healthcare workers to be of good conduct and avoid practices inimical to their professional ethics.

From October – December 2020, the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, approved the appointment of 774 new healthcare employees to complement work delivery across the 27 public health facilities of the state.

On Tuesday, they were inducted by the Lagos State Health Service Commission via a virtual induction training programme geared towards educating them on ethics and ethos guiding the public service.

During the event, the Permanent Secretary of the agency, Dr Benjamin Eniayewun, charged the inductees to dedicate themselves to service delivery devoid of inimical activities detrimental to the public service order.

“COVID-19 crippling effects have so far truncated basic practices to ‘new-normal’ operational methods of job execution. Hence, I urge you all to keep up with the tide expected of your professional proficiency for qualitative delivery,” Mr Eniayewun said.

While highlighting some of the job benefits, he said “Apart from the financial benefits of your monthly salaries, the psychological benefits and training on the job cannot be under-estimated.

“You would certainly learn on the job, even as your progress peaks towards remarkable standards expected of resourceful professionals.”

“Thus, I implore you to be of good conduct and avoid practices inimical to your professional ethics, as these could hamper your career progression. Remember, the Sky is only but the beginning,” he added.
