The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Ms Kachollom S. Daju, mni, has said that the Ministry will continue to operate on the principle of inclusion, devoid of any form of discrimination.
She stated this when she received in audience, the Women Inspired Initiative, led by their president, Loyce Ogueri.
Daju emphasised that the Ministry has always operated a system of inclusive administration that does not condone discrimination in any guise — gender or otherwise, and would continue to promote the principle of equal opportunity for all in the workplace.
She assured the group that the management has always been mindful of the wellbeing of all staff, and would continue to treat every individual and group in the Ministry equitably.
The Permanent Secretary also pledged the support of the Ministry to the Women Inspired Initiative in its extensive vision for the promotion of women both within and beyond the group, and to the larger society.
Earlier, the president of Women Inspired Initiative, Comrade Loyce Ogueri, had solicited the support of the Permanent Secretary in achieving the group’s goal of meeting “the yearnings and needs of women and the society at large.”
She also called for the inclusion of the group and other women in the Ministry in seminars, trainings and other activities to enhance their well-being, and improve their productivity.
Ogueri described the Permanent Secretary as the light of the Ministry, a rallying point, and who has warmed herself into the heart of all, by her endearing attitude.
The Women Inspired Initiative is a group of goal-oriented women of the Ministry whose primary goal is to support and encourage one another, and create empowerment programmes for women in the society.
