Just as the staffers of Yaba LCDA were still x-raying their experience from the knowledge acquired in the last training exercise organised for clerical officers, the council further underscored its desire to broaden the staffers’ knowledge in the art of effective communication that would enhance their performance in the organisation.
To achieve this, the council organised a two day seminar on ‘Effective Communication in a Modern Society’ for the sectional heads in the council. The seminar which took place at the AHI House, 19, Lawal Street Jibowu between 3rd – 4th May 201 was declared open by the Executive Chairman, Hon AbdulRaheem Olajide Jimoh.
In his speech, the Chairman said that communication played an important role in the development of mutual and cordial relationships within an organisation. For any organisation to be functional and efficient in its day to day activities there needed to be effective communication. He stressed that everything within his power would be done to see that council staffs were trained in the rudiments and skills of effective communication that would enhance their efficiency on their job.
He enjoined the participants to compose themselves, be attentive and ensure that they acquired the necessary knowledge. A minute silence was observed in remembrance of Comrade Sheriff Ayinde, Yaba LCDA Nulge Chairman who the Chairman said was instrumental to the seminar.
Resource personnel at the two day seminar were Mr Peter Jide Jimoh of Lagos State University, Mass Communication Dept, Mr Abdul Mohammed Aliu, former Editor, Concord Press and Managing Director, Magnate Communications Limited and Otunba Muyiwa Ogunlaja, Director (finance and administration), Governor’s office..

The seminar ended with a communiqué to the Management and certificates were awarded to the participants.
