A Non Governmental Organisation, NGO, ‘Centre for Ethics and Self Value Orientation’ has offered to train 100 officials of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Muslim Pilgrims Welfare Board.

The training is part of its contribution to transform hajj operations.

Service delivery
“The gesture is in recognition of the quality service delivery to the FCT Pilgrims over the years after conducting a secret independent assessment of the board and its staff,’’ Mr. Yakubu said.

He stressed that the award was expected to ginger the morale of the staff of the board in rendering services to the FCT contingents to Saudi Arabia.

After his induction as the Ambassador of Ethics and Conscience, the Director of the Board, Muhammad Bashir appreciated the gesture and pledged endless service to humanity.

“There is  need for the staff of the board to have fear of Allah as a guiding principle…This is because every human being will account for his deeds before the Creator in the hereafter,’’ Mr. Bashir stated.

The Director re-emphasised the need to work diligently and desist from any act capable of tarnishing the image of the administration.

He urged the staff of the Board to continue to exhibit uprightness in their conducts while carrying out their assigned responsibilities.

Mr. Bashir assured the NGO that the Administration was committed to partnering with any organisation in capacity building of its officials toward enhancing the services to pilgrims by improving hajj exercise at all level.
