PESP II COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN CALLS FOR MORE COMMITMENTS AND SACRIFICES TOWARDS THE SUCCESS OF PESP II

Lagos Water Corporation Performance Enrichment Sustainability Program II (PESP II) Committee Chairman, Mr. Rasheed Salami has called for more commitments and sacrifices from the entire Management and Staff of the Corporation towards success of the new Program.

Mr. Salami made this remark today Tuesday 18th December, 2018 during the Open Air Sensitization Program of PESP II at the LWC HQ., Boardroom, Ijora, Lagos.

He declared in a strongest simple term during the session that there is low commitments and sacrifices in the Corporation, as he made reference to himself that he has not received any allowances since he has stepped aside as RBM, and this has not stopped him from doing his good job. That is called Commitment, he said.

“We need to work along this lane, as we need to sacrifice something to achieve something.

“We don’t need to call outsiders to work for us, as we are all competent.

“We need innovative thinking, we need commitment to move forward”

The man popularly known and addressed as “Igwe” by close associates said the program is borne out of the review of the previous programs, the merits and demerits, to make PESP II a Big success.

This program is our program, it’s Water Corporation program, our slogan is YES, WE CAN!!!.

This is a program where the Management will responsible for the Staff and the Staff will do the needful, in terms of improved service delivery.

“We created new region of South South from present South East and Central Regions to give other people the opportunity to perform, as we should have a competitive system attached with rewards.

“There would be signing of MOU by all RBMs, as we want attitudinal change of all Staff. To move forward, we need to take actions, the committee Chairman added.

In his statement, the LWC Chief Operating Officer (COO), Engr. Deji Johnson however stated that in order to be at your best you don’t need directives from GMD/CEO or COO, adding that the Corporation failed in some areas in the previous programs because its never followed and implemented sanctions and rewards associated with performance., as we never followed KPI ideology/system.

“We need more Dedication, Commitment and Drive to excel in our various departments and work as a unit.

“This is a second chance to make amendment. We need to work harder to get our pensions when we retire.

“Let consider this as revitalization. We need to work harder to make this program work, as we have dedicated Staff in the Corporation”

Engr. Johnson added that without further ado, he is happy that the Corporation has the knowledge needed to move the Corporation forward.

The Program Coordinator, Head, Quality Assurance, Mrs. Monsurat Banire explained various transformation taken place to improve service delivery to Lagosians, such as PEP to PESP, to SIM and PESP II, adding that the Performance Enrichment Sustainability Program II is about Staff Attitudinal Change towards improved service delivery to Lagosians and progress of the Corporation.

She noted that the program is to highlight the disadvantages/challenges associated with the formal programs towards turning them to success, as this Corporation was once a reference point among other water industries or agencies in the Country.

She stated that with LWC modern equipment and facilities, yet, the Corporation is lacking behind and it’s incomparable with other water agencies and parastatals in the Country in revenue generation.

She however observed that from other Open Air Sensitisation Programs held in some regions, it was discovered that the Staff were not working at their best, thinking that it is other people’s job. “Ogo ta, Ogo o ta, Owo Alaru Ape”.

“This is a new dawn, as we are moving into new year 2019. It is about new resolution, it is about attitudinal change, it all about collaboration, it about all departments”.

The more we do this, the better for Lagos Water Corporation, she stated.

Head, Property and General Services in his presentation said, Yes! We can do it, and do it better, just like the watchword of Service Charter. We just need to work harder. Once you do it well, no need to go to places.

“For me, I believe we can do it right. We must be committed to make it better. We need to be sincere”.

Everyone, from the gate to CEO must be committed to the struggle. I know, If I want to go up, so, I know I must be pushed, no more, no less, he concluded.

Engr. Ibrahim asked why the Corporation always fail in discharging its responsibility, even with provision of modern equipments and facilities, as Mrs. Osomo quickly added that it’s about Staff attitude.

“A lot is happening in this Corporation that is very bad, we need to change our orientation, we need to do it right”.

In his contribution, Mr. Jones Awolowo stated that “We need a Performance Contract, not MOU, as this is not usual civil service way. Give me this, you get this, if you don’t give me this, you won’t get that.

All we have been saying/hearing is attitudinal change, but you need to give out something to achieve something. You need to propel or drag me to be at my best. You need to give me something to raise my hope.

“If you want my attitude to change, then you must give me something to change my attitude, Mr. Bello added.

On Tuesday 11th of December, 2018, the Corporation woke up to witness yet another transformation of Performance Enrichment Program (PEP), named Performance Enrichment Sustainability Program II (PESP II) as a tool to accelerate improved service delivery to Lagosians and revenue generation of the Corporation.

Since then the PESP II Committee Chairman, Mr. R. O. Salami in company of Head, Admin and Human Resources, Mr. Sheriff Akinpelu, Head, Sales and Commercial, Mr. Micheal Ajose, Head, Quality Assurance, Mrs. Monsurat Banire, Head, Finance and Accounts, Mrs. Saint John, Engr. Bright Origami, M & E among others, has embarked on Open Air Sensitization Program of PESP II in various LWC regions to bring together staff for proper enlightenment and better understanding of the program.
