Service Delivery: AEA Trains Staff

By: Emmanuel Tortiv & Halima Farouk.

To improve service delivery to the residents of the Federal Capital Territory in tune with the ’Renewed Hope Agenda’, the Abuja Enterprise Agency (AEA) has organized a two-day training for its workforce.

Accordingly, the training apart from dealing with the 2021 Revised Public Service Rules also focuses on contemporary challenges in the entrepreneurial eco-system to enhance productivity.

Declaring open the workshop, Ag. Managing Director/CEO of AEA, Mr. Chudi Ugwuada-Ezirigwe, said the training was also tailored towards enhancing the capacity of staff to address the dynamic opportunities and challenges Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, (MSMEs) face in the FCT.

The Managing Director said that the workshop was also designed to handle on-going reforms being championed by the FCT Minister, Barrister Nyesom Wike, which will enhance service delivery and improve the well-being of the residents of the FCT.

Ugwuada-Ezirigwe charged staff to utilize skills acquired from the training to provide solutions that address the challenges MSMEs face while also delivering service with high level of professionalism.

His words: “There is the need for us to be trained and retrained as envisaged by the system. In this regard, we shall continue to ensure that each staff progresses in their career as required by the Public Service Rules.”

Ugwuada-Ezirigwe, while expressing satisfaction with the Training and robust staff participation, commended the sustainability measures that will ensure long term growth of the entrepreneurial sub-sector in the FCT, which aligns with the vision of Wike led Administration.

Communique at the end of the workshop, called for the establishment of Abuja Business School of Entrepreneurship in the Federal Capital Territory, setting up of Crowd funding platforms, expanding the AEA Sheabutter and Cassava Processing Centres in FCT and the setting up of Flash Markets for farm produce among others as a way of enhancing MSMEs sustainability and growth.
