The on-going two-day workshop organized for selected Information Officers working for the State Government has been described as a practical demonstration of the State Government’s resolve to enhance the capacity of the officers through training and retraining.
The State Director of Information, Mrs. Theresa Adiabua Oliko, made the assertion shortly after rounding-off the training session for the first day session holding at the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) located in Alausa, Ikeja.
The State Director of Information noted that since Honourable Charles Ehiedu Aniagwu became the Commissioner of Information, he brought his wealth of experience to bear by bringing innovations that have sharpened the skills of the officers. This she said has led to the effective discharge of the core mandate of the Information Ministry as well as portraying the activities of the State Government in a more profound way thus bringing the Government and the Governed closer.
In her reaction, the Public Relations Officer attached to the Delta State Job and Wealth Creation Bureau, Mrs. Gertrude Onyekachukwu-Uteh, noted that since she was employed over twenty years ago, this was the first time she was benefitting from such training organized by the Ministry and observed that with what she had learnt so far, her job was going to witness a new and better approach because she would deploy the use of more internet facilities like the Instagram, Linked in among others for better information management.
Other participants expressed their appreciation to the State Ministry of Information promising that the training had revealed many avenues to discharge their duties effectively as State Information Managers.
The two –day Strategic Communications facilitated by NECCI would train over twenty officers from 9th to10th September, 2021. The training was fully sponsored by the Delta State Ministry of Information.
