Civil servants in Delta State have been assured of the State Governments commitment to their welfare.
The Commissioner for Energy Delta State, Comrade Gloria Okolugbo gave the assurance during the commissioning of a crèche established for nursing mothers in the Ministry.
Comrade Okolugbo said she thought it wise to establish the crèche in the Ministry for the nursing mothers in other to reduce the stress they go through as career women saddled with responsibilities of also taking care of their children.
She said establishing the crèche in the Ministry would also help to increase job productivity of the staff as they now have a place to put their wards after school while they concentrate on their jobs.
The Commissioner urged the staff of the Ministry to make good use of the crèche and ensure that they take good care of the facilities in the crèche.
The Commissioner for women of Affairs, Mrs Betty Efekodha who commissioned the crèche thanked the Commissioner for Energy, Gloria Okolugbo for deeming it fit to establish the crèche in the Ministry as it would greatly reduce the burden of Nursing mothers and staff who have children as anxiety of where to put their wards after close of school would no longer be there.
