The Permanent Secretary of Federal Ministry of Women Affairs, Mrs Anthonia A. Ekpa, PhD, paid an unscheduled visit to offices occupied by staff of the Ministry at the Federal Secretariat Complex Office. This was in continuation of her familiarization tour as she was recently deployed to the Ministry.
During the visit, she discovered that the offices were scattered on different floors which made coordination clumsy. She also greeted by the dilapidated state of the offices with scanty furniture and equipment. She therefore, directed Mrs. Christiana Oliko, a Deputy Director and the Coordinator of the Accelerating Nutrition Results in Nigeria (ANRIN) project to supervise and coordinate all officers to ensure orderliness and ease of operation therefore, enjoins Mrs. Oliko to report back to her by the end of January, 2021.
