Anambra State Head of Service, Barrister Harry Udu, recently bagged the Public Servant of the Year Award. Udu, while receiving the award, urged the state work force to be duty-driven, as, according to him, diligence would be rewarded in due time.
Bar Udu received the Public Servant of the Year Award in his office at Jerome Udoji State Secretariat Complex, Awka.
He expressed gratitude to God for making it possible for him to serve the people of Anambra State in that capacity and advised workers to go beyond the normal call of duty if they desire to make an impact that would be recognized and awarded someday, as, according to him, no one attained any height in the service by just carrying out their normal duties.
Udu, who thanked Governor Willie Obiano for granting his consent to programmes that benefited the Anambra workforce, also thanked the officials of Nigerian Magazine that gave him the award for looking out for diligence secretly and rewarding openly.
Earlier, the leader of the team, Mr. Emmanuel Okon, congratulated the HoS for being a deserving award winner, even as he noted that Anambra State remained a reference point to other states within the federation.
