New Perm Sec vows to train staff on PC appreciation

The Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology, Mrs. Fatimah Binta Bamidele, has pledged to train the workforce in the ministry to be competitive in Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), beginning with computer appreciation.

She also tasked staff of the ministry to work diligently in order to move the science and technology ministry forward.

Mrs. Bamidele made this known in her maiden session with staff of the ministry recently in Abuja, said that she is a firm believer in a holistic training for every member of staff, especially in computer appreciation.

“So as to equip them to compete favorably with their counterparts outside the ministry,” she said.

Equally, she expressed determination to ensure due process and transparency, even as she warned that laxity would not be tolerated in the ministry, stressing that any staff that did not observe accountability and probity would be sanctioned in accordance with the civil service rules.

Mrs. Bamidele noted that the session became crucial in order to know staff constraints, handicaps and projections towards achieving expected growth in the ministry.

Also, she said that the Federal Government is ready to provide enabling environment for the staff to contribute their quota to the socio-economic and technological development of the country.

“Science and Technology is the pivotal of nations building, it should therefore be used to drive the country’s economy,” she said.

Responding on behalf of staff, in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online by the Chief Press Secretary to the Ministry, Mr. Tai Shobajo, the Director of ICT, Mr. Wahab Jimoh, was quoted as assuring the new Perm Sec of their loyalty and support.

He also enjoined all members of staff to re-dedicate themselves to their duties for the progress of the ministry.
