NAPTIP boss warns against unprofessional conduct
The newly appointed Director-General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Barrister Julie Okah-Donli has warmed staff to desist from all forms of misconducts.
The new helmsman, who handed down the directive when she assumed duties at the Wuse zone five headquarters of the agency, took briefs from Directors and Heads of Units and also interacted with staff as she went from office to office to fraternise with staff and see the reality of things on ground.
President Muhammadu Buhari had appointed Okah- Donli and 22 others on April 13, 2017 to man various government agencies.
Addressing the Management Staff, she expressed appreciation to the President for the appointment adding that her appointment was a call to national service.
Explaining that the task of NAPTIP was basically to stop the crime against humanity, she stressed that officers must discharge their duties with absolute fear of God.
“We must resist any temptations to compromise our duties. I will never tolerate any form of indiscipline under my watch that will expose this organisation to public ridicule,” she warned.
Speaking further, she maintained that the mandate of NAPTIP was a sensitive one which comprises international concern to halt the history of man’s inhumanity to man.
She stressed that the staff members must first consider themselves as one big family and foster the spirit of oneness to tackle the organisational challenges.
Her words: “My appointment is a call to national service, coming at a time the change mantra of President Buhari is making a quiet revolution in the transformation of the country. Let me therefore, state unequivocally that we cannot afford to be left behind in writing the history of achievements of this administration.

I will never tolerate any form of indiscipline under my watch that will expose this organisation to public ridicule. Motivation of workers is one of my cardinal objectives to achieve our set goals.
