In Anambra, 30 Diaspora Affairs Ministry staff receive computer training



NO FEWER than 30 staff of Anambra State Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, Indigenous Artworks, Culture and Tourism recently received a three-day training on Microsoft (MS) Excel and Word. 

   The training, which was split into two sessions — morning and afternoon sessions was to empower the staff members with the skills on how to use MS packages efficiently and effectively. 

The training was held at the Ministry’s Administrative Hall at the Jerome Udoji Secretariat, Awka. 

Addressing the participants, the commissioner, Dr Kenneth Anierobi explained that the training was long overdue and it was an enabler to make them more productive in the performance of their jobs. 

He adds: “In the world of today, information technology (IT) is the basis of productivity in an organisation or an establishment and MS packages are the vital tools to utilise. 

“If people are not exposed to these tools, it is unlikely that they will be as productive as they can be. 

“This is the beginning and the idea I have is for every staff member to have the opportunity because we all need it to be productive,” he said. 

The commissioner, then, urged the participants to always utilise the packages frequently, noting that consistency with it will enhance their knowledge.   

“What you can use these MS packages to actualise and achieve is limitless; therefore practice it always because it is like musical skills that need constant practice.” 

Earlier, the Director of Tourism, Mr Emma Umeokana thanked the commissioner for facilitating the training for the staff members. 

He said; “this training is important and should be conducted annually and spread across all the staff members of the ministry. 

“Those that participated have learnt a lot and this will help us in the delivery of our duties efficiently and effectively.” 

He, then, thanked the resource person for his teaching style throughout the training. 

In addition, the Director of Administration, Mrs Jane Ajaegbu thanked the commissioner for the training, noting that some of the participants who could not operate a computer are now able to do so. 

The resource person, Mr Ebeofor Onyenaturuchi, Managing Director, De Ruchicom Computers, thanked the commissioner for the opportunity given to him to train the ministry’s staff. 

This training dealt on Data Analysis, Management and Assimilation of some basic office work for optimal performance. 

“I can proudly say that the participants have learnt a lot because initially, when we started, I noticed some of them could not operate MS Word, let alone Excel but now, they can.
