NPA is donating these items this afternoon which comprises of 20 desktops, 10 laptops, two printers and accessories to the commission with the aim of improving its working capacity towards meeting the commission mandate.
It is not unconnected with the fact that NPA is a responsible corporate organisation that is mindful of needs of sister MDAs.
Therefore, we wish to donate these items under our social corporate social responsibility and to also convey the assurance of the MD’s commitment for national development.
The CEO, NIDCOM, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, while receiving the items, applauded the NPA’s gesture as the items came at a time the commission needed assistance.
She extended her gratitude to NPA for the thoughtfulness of its corporate social responsibility.
This is what governance is all about, a sister agency helping a new sister agency at a time when we are in dire need of working items.
The NIDCOM boss also seized the occasion to appreciated Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, and the Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed, for their support to the commission during what she referred to as trying times.
The donation by the NPA comes after the NIDCOM boss and the Minister of Communication, Isa Pantami, engaged each other in a free-for-all on social after claims by Dabiri-Erewa that armed men, following the minister’s order, threw the commission’s staff out of their office at the Ministry of Information building.
This claim was, however, debunked by Pantami.
The row, in the meantime, caused the Federal Government to say that it would take strict actions against any of its employees who engages in such act in the future.
