FG To ASCON Board Members: Seek Alternative Funding To Solve Cash Flow Issues

90

The Federal Government has charged the newly inaugurated Chairman and members of the Board of the Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON), to seek alternative source of funding for its operations.

“Aggressive efforts should therefore be made by the board and management of the institution to explore other areas apart from government to fund its operations, said, Head of the Federal Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, while inaugurating  the ASCON board.

She said dwindling resources over the years have impacted negatively on the activities of the institution.

She also charged the members to bring their wealth of experience to bear in the discharge of their duties, saying: “Your appointment by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, is a clear testimony of the remarkable contributions you have been making, individually and collectively to the development of our great country.”

She said that ASCON was established as a principal organ for sustainable capacity building in both the public and private sectors of the Nigerian economy, and that in meeting the objectives on a constant and sustainable basis requires a committed Governing Board and management.

“Your role as Board members of ASCON is therefore to provide the much needed direction in supporting the vision of this Administration for institutional and human capacity development among others through effective training and re-training of public servants.”
