Don’t Mislead Us, Minister Warns Staff of N-Delta Ministry

LAGOS NOVEMBER 12TH (URHOBOTODAY)—The new Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Pastor Usani Uguru and his Minister of State, Cladius Daramola, yesterday, assumed duties with a warning to staff of the ministry not to mislead them in the course of carrying out their duties for the benefit of the region.
Pastor Uguru, in his remarks shortly after receiving the hand- over note from the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mrs. Wakama Asifieka, who herself assumed duties at the ministry less than 24 hours earlier, urged Directors and other top management of the ministry to transparently guide the new leadership “because you are on ground.”
He said that the new team required the cooperation of all staff, including the messengers, to deliver on the mandate of the ministry, adding: “We are going to work with Nigerians from different backgrounds and so you have a duty to guide the leadership and the ministers.”
Warning against embarking on egocentrism, the minister said: “Be open to one another. When there is anything you will want to hide, tell us and we will hide it well together. Avoid scheming for popularity. I believe in working together and not individual championship.”
He charged departmental heads to come up with memos detailing the requirements and activities of their departments.
“We are happy that we are going to work with Nigerians of different backgrounds. We also appreciate the fact that we are gathered here today. We also appreciate the fact that all of you are going to guide the management team, both the Permanent Secretary and the ministers.”
