The management of the Nigeria Institute of Management (NIM) has received assurances from Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat, the deputy governor of Lagos State, that the state government will work with NIM to develop and enhance human potential within the State civil service.

When the Management of the Nigeria Institute of Management (NIM), led by the Institute’s Registrar, Mrs. Taiwo Olusesi, paid him a courtesy call at his office at the Round House, Alausa, Ikeja, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat offered the promise.

“Lagos is always open for better things,” Dr. Hamzat said, “and you will find in us partners when it comes to capacity building. We will support and work with you, but the collaboration must be better in terms of the quality of human capacity development and staff sharpening to achieve a better result.”

As the state has numerous ministries and agencies that require various skills, he charged the institute with providing high-quality training for civil servants, emphasizing that “Training cannot just be generic; it must be specific to the needs of the various Ministries, Agencies and Departments so that our staff can benefit greatly.”The government has been looking for ways to maximize the advantages from the many training sessions allocated each year, therefore the Deputy Governor ordered the institute to investigate new methods of providing the curriculum information to the personnel.

We don’t like the concept of the institution merely handing us brochures that we are conducting this training, but rather, let us sit down and see our needs, he said, instructing the institute to look at the needs of the various ministries and tailor their training curriculum to match those needs.
The Deputy Governor instructed the institute’s administration to make sure that the course material is appropriate for civil servants, saying, “It must be designed for our people; we are not saying that it shouldn’t be taken outside of Lagos, but it has to be a curriculum we must agree upon and it has to have an impact on the service and state.”

The Registrar of the Nigerian Institute of Management, Mrs. Taiwo Olusesi, noted earlier in her remarks that the institute wants to work more closely with and participate in state government activities.
In order to improve capacity building across boards, the registrar also requested that the government actively participate in their next conferences by financing both delegates and non-members of the institute.
