He assured that disciplinary matters would be speedily disposed off, adding that the commission would use its mandate fearlessly and fairly.

Earlier, Akajemeli said that the quality of governance was determined by the quality of services delivered to the citizens and the extent to which the services meet the need of their needs and expectations.
