DG Promises to Address Welfare and Training Issues

The Staff of National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC) have course to smile as the new Director General of the organization, Mr. Adolphus Joe Ekpe has promised to look into the issues of staff welfare and training.

Speaking at the maiden meeting with the staff at the Commission’s headquarters in Abuja, the DG gave the staff hope and raised their morale when he told them that he believed in welfare and staff training.

Mr. Ekpe, who said he believed in treating people equally, also promised to cooperate with all staff, irrespective of position. While emphasizing team work, the NLRC boss urged the staff to be dedicated to their duties and work as a team to achieve the desired result, instead of running colleagues down or exposing colleagues’ weak points. Speaking further, the DG observed that usually, only 20 per cent of the workforce performs the 80 per cent of the job in an organization, adding that he was ready to work with the productive ones.

The Commission’s helmsman said he was impressed with the management team, pointing out that he is in the Commission to provide leadership to the organization.  

He thanked members of the management for their cooperation so far. 

Speaking on the lottery industry, the Chief Executive said that Nigeria has the potential of using the lottery to develop the country. 

On his vision, the DG said he would make the Commission to be the envy of Nigerians and other African countries. 

He said, as representatives of the Commission, staff should be friendly and polite to people because anyone coming to the office should be considered as a potential customer. 

In his comments, the former Acting DG, Adamu Muhammad Sifawa, while welcoming the DG, thanked the staff for their cooperation during his tenure as the Acting DG. Sifawa said the Commission should be the envy of everybody.  He advised the staff to be loyal, sincere, and productive and dedicated to their duties.

The staff that spoke promised to cooperate with the new DG and equally to be dedicated to their duties by increasing the percentage of the productive workforce to over 20 per cent.
