Awka, Dec. 6, 2019 (MOI) As part of Christmas largesse, Welfare Association of the Office of the Head of Service (HOS), organised free health screening for staff members to mark the end of the year celebration.

The event took place at the HOS Conference Hall, Jerome Udoji Secretariat Complex, Awka.

Barr Harry Udu, Anambra Head of Service noted that end of year celebration did not mean end to duties but meant to reawaken everyone to their duties.

He urged workers to always follow the clear principles of dedication to service of the state and humanity as shown by Gov. Willie Obiano.

The civil service boss hailed efforts of dedicated workers in service, encouraging them to continue in displaying goodness.

He called on retiring staff members, who were sent forth to transit their experience into the wider society as they have become senior citizens.

Chairman of the Association and Acting Director, Administration Department, HOS, Mr Prince Nwude, JP, thanked God for His continued protection and support toward workers.

Mr Nwude urged the workers to maintain good working relationship with one another as it was the prerequisite for effective service delivery.

He enjoined them to eschew bitterness and rancour in order to maintain high productivity in their various offices.

Nwude commended them for their eagerness to work, urging them to continue to put in their best as they discharge their duties.

Director, Rapid Department, Mrs Ifeyinwa Onyenwe commended the representative of BF SUMA, the health company that subsidised the free health screening for workers.

She enjoined workers to seize the opportunity to ensure that they were in good health, as good health remained necessary for effective service delivery.

Mr Joshua Nwodukpechi, Representative of BF SUMA, said that they were in the state to screen workers for possible ailments.

He said that the company was located in the U.S., and deals in natural herbal products to promote wellbeing.

Nwodukpechi, then, mentioned some drugs produced by the company which include better life slim, better life multivitamin and cardiovascular health.

He enjoined civil servants to avail themselves of the opportunity to be screened in order to ascertain their true health condition, if they must work productively.

Presentation of gift items to retired staff members; Mr Peter Ononye, Emmanuel Ottih, Bridget Ubeh, Celestina Chigbogu and Mabel Ilouno made the celebration colourful. (MOI)
