The FCT Christian Pilgrims Welfare Board (FCPWB) has trained its staff on the way and manner to handle intending pilgrims to the Holy lands, during this year’s exercise.
The in-house training which was organised by the board director, Mr. Dabara Audu Vingo, acquainted the staff on some basic principles in administering their duties both in Nigeria and outside the country.
Speaking during a paper presentation, titled, “An Overview of the Public Service Rules in Nigeria.” The board’s deputy director, administration, Mr. Daniel Audu, urged staff to adhere to the principles of stewardship, trust, engagement and professionalism as civil servants.
“With this in-house training, the board is ready for this year pilgrimage. We don’t want to leave chances, which is the reason we want the staff to obey the civil service rules in all they do,” Audu said.
Also speaking, deputy director, consular and education services, Mrs. Rose Onoha, said government has observed that the cost of governance in the FCT was high and has advised all heads of departments and parastatals to organise in-house training for their staff in order to cut cost.
“So, I choose this topic because of the primary assignment we have to perform both here in Nigeria and in the holy lands. When pilgrims go out, we always accompanied them and we make sure that they are well taken care of outside the country and that they return in good order.
So, we organised this in-house training to intimate the staff of their duties, responsibilities and the importance of going with the pilgrims. The board is ready for the airlift.
