Meanwhile, the NPA has reassured its staff of unflinching support prioritizing health issues concerning its employees to derive the best service delivery.

Managing Director, Hadiza Bala Usman, at the yearly “Workers Wellness Programmes Fair”, held at its Headquarters in Lagos, said all workers should key into the theme of the programme, “Eat Right, Keep Fit, and Enhance Productivity” which was in tandem with NPA’s core values of upholding efficiency and engendering greater customer satisfaction.

Represented by the Executive Director Finance and Administration Mohammed Bello Koko, she said the programme was a way of encouraging staff to be the best they can in order to be relevant in the operational activities, adding that the gateway to the nation’s economy deserves to be driven by a healthy workforce.

She congratulated the occupational health team for being the pinnacle of Management’s thrust in ensuring a sustained health regime, which has left the officers of the organisation better in rendering their services to the nation.
