Iyadim ,who based his remark on Paslm 24:7-10, advised them to have faith in God and be dedicated to their duties and as well as see their efforts as contributions to reposition the council.
He enjoined them to report at their duty posts on time, adding that they should pull resources and work as a team while the Council on its own part will improve on their working environment to ensure productivity.
While acknowledging the contributions of some staff of the council, he implored them to put in their best, stressing that things are bound to move forward for good
