NEDC Commences In-House Training For Staff

The North  East Development Commission (NEDC) has commenced training of its staff from the six states of North East for more effective service delivery.

Speaking at the flag-off of the in-house training for Store Officers and other Stakeholders in Maiduguri on Tuesday, the Managing Director of NEDC, Mr Mohammed Goni Alkali, said the training would ensure compliance with the requirements of financial regulations.

Alkali, who was represented by the Executive Director Administration and Finance of the commission, Alhaji Abubakar Garba Iliya, tasks the participants to show commitment to the in-house capacity building programme for maximum results.

“The training programme is being conducted in-house because it is  specifically tailored to address the problems and challenges identified as being faced by the Commission’s stores and warehouses across the six states of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe since our assumption of office in August 2023.

“As part of our routine exercise, the management through the Audit Department conducts an end of year stock taking exercise annually.

“It was during the 2023 exercise that some technical knowledge gap was discovered in the cause of interactions with store officers in all our Branch Offices across the zone. This necessitated the workshop we are conducting today.

“While acknowledging the hard work put in place  by the store officers to deliver their best, the need to train them and indeed all stakeholders in store management best practices became not only necessary but important,” Alkali said.

Earlier, the Head of Inventory of the commission, Modu Ali Kur, who tasked participants on the need for serious attention at the training, said there would be an examination at the end to test their knowledge and ability to deliver as expected.

Speaking on behalf of the trainees, Ali Ibrahim, thanked the management for the programme and assured that they would make maximum use of the opportunity to improve in their service delivery.
