He also advised the management team to block all loopholes which might affect the revenue target, promising improved welfare packages for the staff while insisting that disciplinary action would be taken against any wanting staff irrespective of their positions.

The Head of Administration (HOA), Ashafa Fatai, also advised them to give their best in any department or section they have been transferred to, emphasizing that the movement of staff across the departments in the local council were done in good faith.


The Council Treasurer, Nimota Oki encouraged the staff to shun fraudulent acts but double up their revenue generation efforts, reminding them of reward to hard work.
