He urged the Administrative Officers Cadre in the Civil Service to continually strive to be professional and expand the frontiers of excellence for effective service delivery, saying, ‘’as custodians of rules and regulations in the Public Service, the Administrative Officers must always be excellent, professional and faultless while discharging their statutory duties.
