2ndh Feb, 2020 | By Kabiru Musa and Sarah Odugbo | ||

The drums were rolled out to celebrate retired Directors from various Agencies and Departments under the Education Secretariat who rendered various distinguished services towards the progress and development of the education sector. Speaking during the event at the Secretariat, the Acting Secretary and Director of Administration and Finance, Mallam Umar Marafa acknowledged their efforts in adding value to education in FCT by bringing their wealth of experience to bear in positively impacting on the Secretariat while in service.

He said that the team spirit exhibited by them during their meritorious services was worthy of commendation and urged those who were still in active service to be dedicated in the discharge of their duties in order to continue to place education in the front burner in the FCT. According to him, the Education Secretariat has over the years sustained its tradition to celebrate those who have retired from the service of the Secretariat. He therefore prayed that God will continue to give them good health to enjoy the retirement life.

Highlight of the event was presentation of gifts to the retired Directors whose harmonious character and commitment in putting call-to-duty above self were eulogized. Responding on behalf of the retirees, Acting Director of the Education Resource Centre, Barrister Edmund Obia who was also retiring stated that it was heartwarming that the Secretariat put the befitting event together to recognise their efforts and deemed it fit to make their retirement a memorable one. He advised that dedication to service was important as there is reward for everything we do both from God and humanity.

Other retirees at the event included Mrs. Caroline Yawon, Dr (Mrs) Franscica Ene, Mallam Aliyu Gatawa , and Alhaji Isah Paiko. The colourful event was well attended by staff and management of the Education Secretariat as well as members of various Boards.
