NEMA’s proactiveness, transparency in discharging duties applauded

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has been commended for its strategic interventions in the country’s emergency and disaster management.


The Renewed Hope Ambassador of Nigeria (RHAN) National Coordinator, Hon. Yakubu Dauda, who led President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s advocacy group, also commended NEMA for its proactiveness and transparency in disaster management and mitigating emergencies across the country.

Speaking on Wednesday during the periodic review of NEMA’s operations in Abuja, Hon. Dauda argued that the Interventionist Agency has performed creditably well over the years and fulfilled its mandate.

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

“The various Directors-General who steered the ship of NEMA from the era of Sani Sidi to the current dispensation of Ahmed Mustapha Habib have demonstrated sterling leadership qualities in managing the agency’s affairs.

“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 agency’s resources in fulfilling its strategic mandate.

“Staff welfare was not neglected either. 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 assuming office in sustaining the activities of NEMA and promoting the agency to the level it has attained today.”

The Group in the report, however, maintained that the Agency can achieve more through the massive support of critical stakeholders, the government, and members of the public.
