NOA reviews five-year strategic work plan

By Deji Abdulwahab

The National Guidance Agency (ANO) examined and validated its five-year strategic work plan from 2021 to 2025 on Wednesday.

NOA Director General Alhaji Garba Abari said this during the stakeholder review and validation session on the plan in Abuja,

Abari said the plan was to improve the agency’s performance capacity as well as the skills and capacity of staff members with a view to repositioning the agency for higher performance.

“There is nothing to be gained by saying that no country can achieve some form of development without having strong policies and programs in place. This session is therefore imperative for development, ” he said.

Ms. Ene Obi, Country Director, Action Aid Nigeria, who commended NOA for improving its activities, stressed the need to reintroduce civic education into the school curriculum.

Obi said that many young people cannot recite Nigeria’s national anthem due to the fact that many schools have removed civics education from their curriculum.

According to her, if civic education is restored, it will go a long way in promoting moral values ​​and democratic ethics in our society.

“It is also necessary for governments to engage in political education so that our politicians can learn good governance.

“Most importantly, investing in human capital is also essential for national development,” she said.

Mr. Chris Ngando, an official urged NOA to rekindle the spirit of Nigerians to have faith and confidence in the nation’s democracy.

Ngando said that although Nigeria has challenges of inclusion and deepening democracy, these could be resolved as the country’s democracy was young at 22.

“NOA occupies a strategic role in solving the problem of perception, building social cohesion and loyalty.

“I see here a sign of falling in love with Nigeria and NOA is in a privileged position to advance these reasons.

“Most importantly, NOA has a role to play in protecting the hearts and minds of our people from despair,” Ngando said. (NAA)
