Mrs. Ademola disclosed this over the weekend while flagging off the Walk For Fitness exercise undertaken by Public Servants in the State as part of activities marking the Year 2016 Public Service Week Celebration.
The Head of Service said the State Government appreciate the relevance and importance of exercise in maintaining a healthy heart and good body composition hence the inclusion of Walk For Fitness in the activities commemorating this year Public Service Week Celebration.
The Walk For Fitness exercise saw Public Servants in Lagos State walking from the Ikeja Local Government Secretariat through Allen Around about to the State Secretariat before terminating at the House of Assembly Complex in Alausa.
Speaking on the importance of regular exercise, Mr. Aloye Momoh who gave the Health Talk enumerated the benefits of regular exercise as a preventive measure to tackle health related issues and challenged Public Servants to always engage in aerobic fitness exercise and they should not see it as a yearly activity.
“We need to exercise regularly within the reasonable limit as advised by a health practitioner, at least 30 minutes daily. There is also the need for people to undertake a medical check-up as this would assist in knowing their state of health and fitness,” he said.
Public Servants in the State led by the Head of Service, Mrs Olabowale Ademola, Permanent Secretaries and other top Government functionaries participated in the walk.
