FG to collaborate with professional bodies for capacity development

The Federal Government says it is ready to collaborate with well-established bodies and professionals to enhance capacity-building in the area of service delivery.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, stated this in Abuja while receiving members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management of Nigeria, CIPM, led by its President, who called on him.

He said the government was delighted at CIPM’s offer to partner with the administration in the area of capacity development, saying that they would assist in the implementation of the recommendations of the just-concluded Ministerial Mid-term Review.

The CIPM President, Mr. Olusegun Mojeed, who was accompanied by members of the Executive Council, had expressed the willingness of the Institute to realise its policies and programmes.

He commended the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for ongoing work on the Bodo-Bonny road, saying residents of Niger Delta region and other road users in the area have started using the accessible part of the road, thereby easing their travel burden.

Mr Mojeed also commended the administration for approving a 14-day paternity leave for men in the Federal Civil Service, saying it was gratifying that Nigeria has keyed into global practices on the welfare of working-class men.
