“They were part of the system and are still very much with us, they know and will teach you all that will make you a productive public servant in the 21st century, which is why we went for those we know will teach you all the needed and added knowledge that will make all the participan­ts exceptiona­l.”

Muri-okunola advised the participan­ts to make the workshop participat­ory and interactiv­e, adding, “You are being watched; be a good ambassador of the public service office. Ensure you contribute meaningful­ly to the system.”
