ITF is fully repositioned, refocused for service delivery ― Sir Ari
The Director-General, Industrial Training Fund ITF, Sir, Joseph Ari has stated that the Fund has achieved 90 per cent of its target under the present administration which is repositioning and refocusing of the organisation for service delivery.
Sir Ari disclosed this during an interface with the in-house unions of the organisation,
the Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government Owned Companies, SSACGOC and the Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Employees, AUPCTRE.
According to him, one year into the implementation of the second phase of the Reviewed Vision, the Fund had successfully produced the first indigenous android phone to be assembled by a Federal Government organisation.
“Negotiation for the acquisition of an assembly line for the production of the mobile phone was in top gear and the Fund had begun meetings with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), after which production would be rolled out.
“Given its achievements over the last few years, the ITF has become a reference point for many in terms of skills acquisition with several stakeholders seeking its collaboration and partnership,” he said.
Ari in a statement signed by the Fund Director Public Affairs Mrs Suleyol Fred Charge pointed out that Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno has sought the collaboration of the ITF to empower the youths of Borno State with requisite vocational skills for self-reliance and sustainability. Similarly adding that the Fund has also received a delegation from the Bayelsa State Government seeking partnership for equipping the youths of the Niger-Delta with requisite skills”.
Ari, therefore, commended the entire workforce for the Fund’s achievements, noting that they couldn’t have been achieved without their commitment, resilience, dedication to duty and willingness to brave all odds in the face of daunting challenges.
The President of the Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government Owned Companies, SSACGOC, Mr Kayode Alakija commended the Director-General for creating avenues for regular engagement with staff, thereby leading to unparalleled industrial harmony.
“For the first time, the Fund is having a genuinely united staff that is wholly committed to the attainment of the Fund’s mandate, contrary to recent publications about the Fund having factions among its staff, the present ITF workforce is united and if there is anything contrary, we will not hesitate to bring it to the limelight”. He said.
On his part the Acting Chairman, Amalgamated Union of Public Corporations, Civil Service Technical and Recreational Employees, AUPCTRE, Mallam Lawal Muhammad also praised the DG for creating avenues for regular engagement with staff, thereby leading to unparalleled industrial harmony.
