The Nigerian Institute of Training and Development (NITAD) has conferred an award of excellence on the Lagos State Government in recognition of its commitment to capacity development.
Speaking at its 26th Annual Trainers’ Conference at the Shehu Musa Yar’adua Centre, Abuja, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode said it is gratifying that third parties have taken notice of the commitment of his administration to expanding the capacities of officers of the state public service for the betterment of the state.
The Governor, represented by Commissioner for Establishments, Training and Pensions, Dr. Akintola Benson, said NITAD plays a crucial role in Nigeria’s human resources development and management ecosystem.
He stated that the mission of the professional institute to improve human resources development practice in both the public and private sectors of the economy is commendable and vital.
He said: “The Lagos State Ministry of Establishments, Training and Pensions have long been dedicated to envisioning the future of work in the state public service. In our view, the future for the state public service is heavily dependent on the systematic, yet aggressive development of capacities and the innovative and creative use of resources so as to do more with less.
“I have always emphasised that high performances have been known to increase in organisations that expose their human capital to development through capacity development trainings.
