Similarly, he warned administrative office personnel and others to always manage information effectively and be guided by the oath of secrecy when handling official correspondence and other matters.

Finally, in what seemed a piece of fatherly advice, CP Alabi admonished the personnel not to work at cross purposes but to ensure inter-departmental and inter-sectional harmony.
