Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State on Monday reiterated his administration’s commitment to the highest standards of ethical conduct, fiscal discipline and judicious allocation of resources, transparency and accountability.

Governor Oborevwori stated this at the Delta State Audit Forum held at the Unity Hall, Government House, Asaba with Secretary to the State Government, Dr Kingsley Emu and the State Head of Service Mr Reginald Bayoko among others in attendance.

The Governor who was represented by his Senior Policy Adviser, Chief Funkekeme Solomon, urged all participants to embrace the culture of collaboration and cooperation among audit stakeholders including government agencies, oversight bodies, and the public.

Oborevwori said: “This Forum reflects our commitment to transparency, integrity, and the pursuit of excellence in public service.

“The role of auditors in public administration and financial management cannot be overemphasised. In today’s rapidly evolving landscape, characterised by technological changes and complex fiscal challenges, it is imperative to have a robust and functional auditing that enables good governance, transparency and financial accountability.

“The Forum serves as a platform for us to collectively assess our progress, identify areas for improvement and share best practices.

“We must adopt and adapt to emerging trends and embrace innovative approaches to enhance our audit processes, strengthen internal controls and safeguard against fraud and mismanagement.

“This administration is committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct, fiscal discipline and judicious allocation of resources, transparency and accountability.

“Through such cooperation and synergy, we can maximise the impact of our efforts and promote greater trust and confidence in the integrity of our institutions.

“As we engage in fruitful discussions over the course of this Forum, I urge you to be bold in your ideas, relentless in your pursuit of excellence and unwavering in your commitment to the public interest.
