The Director General of the Nigerian Army Resource Center (NARC), retired Major General. Garba Wahab, has urged senior military officers and other agency personnel to pay attention to the guidance of their various organizations.
Wahab, who was represented as an investigator at NARC, Maj.-Gen. Kabiru Mukhtar, made the call at the Center’s Adaptive and Critical Thinking Course Participants graduation 2/2022 on Friday in Abuja.
He said that the subject of tutoring had been of great importance to him and added that it was the product of good tutoring.
According to him, he is an advocate of guardianship and opposed the godfather, adding that godparents often destroy their godchildren or godchildren in the long run.
He said mentors would push their mentees to the limit with the goal of bringing out the best in them, while godparents spoon-feed godchildren, which, he said, was not sustainable.
“I encourage you to really identify the potentials in your various organizations, pick them up, develop them and push them for the good of the institution and Nigeria as a whole and for your own good, including in service and retirement,” he said.
Wahab said managing pressure and crisis was a critical element of leadership, adding that actions taken out of anger or emotion often result in dismal results.
He said the course was designed to equip participants with the ability to solve personal or organizational problems with critical thinking questions.
He praised the experts and the participants for their good conduct and commitment during the duration of the course.
The Program Coordinator, Brigadier General. FC Eze, (rtd) said the course would build an understanding of idea generation and problem solving.
Speaking on behalf of the participants, Ms. Caroline Olori, Park Conservator for the National Park Service, said the course would improve their performance in their various organizations.
Olori thanked the center for impacting knowledge and said that the skills they acquired during the training will be used in the organizations.
The Nigerian News Agency reports that the course participants came from the military, paramilitary and Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA).
