Pro- Tinubu group lauds NEMA DG, Habibu for his patriotism, dedicated leadership


The Renewed Hope Ambassador of Nigeria (RHAN) has lauded  the Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) for its  patriotism and dedicated leadership styles.

The advocacy group also hailed NEMA for its strategic interventions in the country’s emergency and disaster management.

The group, which made this known in its periodic review of NEMA’s operations, made the outcome of its findings known at a press conference on Wednesday. 

In his address, the national coordinator of the group, Hon. Yakubu Dauda, said the agency has done creditably well over the years and fulfilled its mandate. 

Appraising the agency, Daudu said it has played a pivotal role in intervening in the country’s emergency and disaster incidents. 

He noted that NEMA has witnessed the emergence of exemplary leaders who piloted the agency’s affairs with utmost dexterity and dedication. 

“The various Director Generals that stirred the ship of NEMA from the era of Sani Sidi to the current dispensation of Ahmed Mustapha Habib have provided sterling leadership qualities in managing the agency’s affairs,” he added. 

“They have motivated staff members of the agency to discharge their duties effectively. The leadership of NEMA over the years has encouraged staff member training through participation in various training programs both locally and internationally. This has paid off. 

“The introduction of transparency and accountability in managing the affairs of the agency has ensured the effective utilization of the resources of the agency in fulfilling its strategic mandate. 

“Staff welfare was not also neglected. Various incentives were provided for staff members, enabling them to discharge their duties effectively. The present Director General must be commended for his excellent role since the assumption of office in sustaining the activities of NEMA and promoting the agency to the level it has attained today. ”

The report, however, notes that the agency can achieve more through the massive support of critical stakeholders, the government, and members of the public.
