Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Mahmood Abubakar has vowed to support the training and welfare of staff in the ministry.
According to Abubakar, one of his aims is to enhance the productivity and performance of staff in the workplace.
The minister disclosed this during his recent visit to the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) North-West Zonal Office Complex in Kaduna, Kaduna State.
He noted that the working visit was basically to ensure that the staff and management team of the ministry in the North West region worked in tandem with the Federal Government’s goals.
The FG’s focus, he noted, is primarily on the overall development of the human capacity to enhance productivity and boost the government’s effort in achieving food security and job creation for Nigerians.
The minister urged the staff to always align their duties with the president’s diversification policy in the Agric sector which is aimed at achieving food sufficiency, job creation, and economic growth.
“The establishment of the Zonal and State Offices of the ministry across the country is to provide leadership and policy direction for the successful implementation of the Agricultural programmes of the Ministry across the board.
“There is a need for a robust synergy and collaboration between the headquarters, zonal and state levels for the effective and efficient implementation of the diversification policy of the government,” Abubakar stated.
On his part, North-West Zonal Director, FMARD, Engr. Ubandoma Ulaaramu, said the minister’s visit was good and timely as it will encourage and enhance the capability of the staff in the zone.
