The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development is set to enter into collaboration with the Institute of Directors’ Centre for Corporate Governance to provide training and capacity building for its staff.
The move is geared towards better productivity and to further optimize the processes of both the Ministry and its agencies and bolster their outlook by entrenching professionalism and enhancing their corporate governance.
The Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa made this known during a courtesy visit by the institute to the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa at his office in the Ministry’s headquarters in Abuja on Tuesday. The Minister emphasized the important role the institute plays in enhancing professionalism in the workplace, promoting good governance practices, and boosting performance across sectors.
He stated “We would leverage your capacities and resources to boost professionalism and effective leadership at all levels within the Ministry and Agencies towards powering our Action Plan for Housing and Urban Development. We hope that we can do this through periodic retreats, seminars, brainstorming sessions to empower our professionals with the right leadership techniques.
“In line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, we intend to build a Ministry of Housing and Urban Development that embraces the performance-driven culture of the private sector so that we can more effectively deliver homes and livable communities for Nigerians,” he said.
Dangiwa noted that the most important resource in any establishment is the human resource, and all workers must be empowered with the requisite skillsets, mentality, and attitude to bring about positive change and transformation. He added that the IoD is a trusted resource that has been instrumental in boosting efficiency for optimal performance across organisations in Nigeria.
