Administrator tasks ASC employees on security
Acting Chief Judge (CJ) of Kogi State, Justice Henry Olusiyi, has assured the state’s leadership of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) of effective partnership on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) matters to protect women and children in the state.
The CJ gave the assurance yesterday when the new executive members of FIDA visited his office in Lokoja.
Commending FIDA for the visit, he said: “We will give you all the support we can muster. We will be working together to make sure that GBV and related cases are given speedy attention. You can come to us at anytime without any unnecessary bureaucracy.”
He promised to support the association’s planned visit to correctional service centres in the state, adding that FIDA’s intended radio programme on sensitisation would also receive full attention.
Earlier, the chairperson of Kogi FIDA, Ajuma Lilian Okolo, congratulated the CJ on his appointment, and prayed for successful tenure.
IN another development, the Sole Administrator, Ajaokuta Steel Company (ASC), Sumaila Abdul-Akaba, has said that no organisation can succeed without adequate security of life and property.
Speaking at a two-day security seminar organised for the management, supervisory staff and security personnel of ASC by Duniya Agencies Nigeria Limited Management and Security Consultants, in collaboration with Lexinium Global Intellectual Consortium, Abdul-Akaba urged ASC employees to be security-conscious at all times.
The administrator noted that the concept of the seminar was to enlighten the employees on the need to be security-conscious to enable them safeguard their lives and the property of the steel company.
“It is pertinent to note that security problem cannot be resolved in a day, but through this type of programme, the staff will be acquainted with the basic knowledge of self security to protect their lives,” he said.
Presenting a paper entitled ‘Security Consciousness in Ajaokuta Steel Company: The Task Before Stakeholders’, Mr. Japa Idris called on government at all levels and other stakeholders to bring on board strategies against general insecurity in the Ajaokuta area. He urged the employees and the host community to be vigilant and synergise on how to tackle criminals in their midst.
