The former Head of Service, Lanre Bisiriyu had on Friday, alongside 11 Permanent Secretaries bowed out of the public service of the State.

 

 

An elaborate valedictory programme was on Friday, organised to mark their retirement from active service, where Governor Abiodun promised to apply merit in the appointment of Bisiriyu’s successor.

 

 

Speaking at the event, the Governor said, the State had a legacy of excellence to protect in its public service that produced the likes of Chief Simeon Adebo and A.K Degun of blessed memory.

 

 

A statement by Kunle Somorin, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Abiodun said: “The Ogun State Government, under Governor Abiodun knows that TPL Chokor, who has proven over the years to understand the system, would put to use her vast knowledge in the management of the State Civil Service and also maintain the high standard that the service is known for”.

 

 

 

Mrs. Amope Ajibola Chokor comes into her new position with impeccable pedigree and service record.

 

 

An accomplished town planner and administrator, she hails from Imapa Quarters at Ota, in Ado-Odo/ Ota Local Government area of the State.

 

 

Until her appointment, Mrs Chokor (nee Bankole) was Permanent Secretary in the State Civil Service Commission.

 

 

A statement by Kunle Somorin, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Abiodun said: “The Ogun State Government, under Governor Abiodun knows that Chokor, who has proven over the years to understand the system, would put to use her vast knowledge in the management of the State Civil Service and also maintain the high standard that the service is known for”.
