Governor Ramalan Yero of Kaduna State on Tuesday said that the public service in the state is on the verge of collapse even as he lamented the high level of impunity within the system.
The governor said corruption in the system was making governance difficult.
The governor, who made this known when he addressed members of the state Executive Council, Permanent Secretaries and principal officers of the state government at a two-day retreat, said there is a wide gap in the structure of the public service in the state with the gradual fading out of some categories of civil servants, adding that this was affecting efficiency in service delivery.
His words, “There is a huge gap in the civil service to the extent that the service may collapse in the next few years. That is why we are having problems of documentation”.
Yero also lamented that the public service in the state has been marred by indiscipline and impunity which has adversely affected the process of good governance and service delivery to the people and warned that this must stop immediately.
“We must stop the impunity in the public service. It is true that the service has been eroded, but we must begin to revive it through discipline and it has to begin with us”, he stated.
He also flayed the culture of sentiment imbibed by some personalities in the state and warned that no one should approach him with issues based on sentiment, saying “under my leadership in Kaduna State, I want everybody to be fair and just to everybody. I want us to reduce sentiment in the system. I don’t care if I have ten people from the same local government that can serve the people of the state.
“We allow too much sentiment and it is not good for our development as a people. I don’t like to hear any issue that is based on sentiment, if it is sentiment issue, don’t come to me with it, keep it to yourself”, Governor Yero told the gathering.
He charged civil servants in the state to be more dedicated to service delivery and eschew indiscipline in the discharge of their duties, while calling on government officials to put more effort into governance rather than politics.

“Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.
Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.
The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own.
my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue
we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price
I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you
While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”
Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.
If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
