Ministry harps on continuous training for workers
The Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development has harped on the need for continuous development of the Nigerian workforce to bring out the best in them.
The ministry’s permanent secretary, Dr. Nasir Sani-Gwarzo, made this known in Enugu while addressing participants of a capacity-building workshop for social workers, held at Emene.
Represented by Peter Audu, a deputy director at the ministry, Gwarzo said: “We are determined in our efforts at providing quality service delivery to all our targeted groups as we gear towards a new phase in achieving our mandate and at the same time, assure all the staff of the ministry that they will not be excluded or neglected in the scheme of things as we progress.”
He said that putting employees through relevant courses that tie with their roles could equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to feel confident to perform optimally.
“This in turn can bring positive team morale, giving workers a sense of purpose towards their work. These and more are the benefits envisaged to be gained, as you participate in this training.
“For any organisation to bring about the best results in the sector, it is operating, or among the other players in the economy, it must consider the training of staff very important and make it sacrosanct. By training, employees are raised to the levels of increasing productivity and efficiency, which engenders profitability that boosts the worth of the organisation, which in turn helps it to consolidate and remain competitive,” Sani-Gwarzo said.
The Acting Provost of the School, Ajibola Chris, said what would be learned at the workshop would be geared towards development and responsibility. He expressed gratitude to the Minister, Sadia Umar Farouq, for her efforts in ensuring that the school’s needs were met since she came on board.
