Earlier today, while swearing-in the 12 newly appointed Permanent Secretaries and the Auditor-General (Local Government), I called on all senior civil and public servants in our state to encourage the free flow of ideas amongst their subordinates.


This is because, from my experience, when the vision of those in senior positions, aligns with the feedback obtained from the junior to mid-level civil servants, we can better execute and improve on the functions and services that are offered by the government.
