FCT Emergency Management Agency, FEMA, has promised to sustain the E -learning platform proposed by the School of Politics, Policy and Governance.
The Director General of FEMA, Alhaji Abbas Idriss made the promise when he received students of the school led by the Group Coordinator, Mr. Mfoniso Umoh in his office, yesterday in Abuja.
According to Idriss, the proposed E-learning platform is a post graduate initiative and academic institution aimed at building individuals that would revolutionize the political landscape of Nigeria.
“Risk management and Risk analysis culture must be built into the training modules in order to address the wide gap the sector is suffering. The Staff must understand our mandate first to be able to fit into the system of Emergency Management and Emergency Response.
“Every staff member should be able to explain to a layman what we are doing,” he said.
The FEMA boss thanked the School for choosing FEMA for the pilot scheme of the Programme assuring on his commitment to work assiduously to sustain it.
Earlier, Mr Mfoniso Umoh informed that the Programme was part of a community impact project designed to reposition the 1,481 MDAs in the country.
He further stated that the initiative is an E-learning platform not only to enable FEMA staff access learning on the go, but also to reduce the high cost of training, boost productivity and capacity building.
