Maximise digital new normal for better service delivery, DG. NCC tells management

Director-General of Nigerian Copyright Commission (NCC), Mr. John O. Asein has urged the directorate staff of the Commission to restrategise and upscale their technological and managerial competencies to maintain effective service delivery.

A statement signed by Vincent Oyefeso stated that the Director-General made the call in his opening remarks at a virtual NCC Hybrid Strategic Workshop organised in collaboration with the First Leadership Academy (FLA) for the Commission’s directorate cadre staff and the State Coordinators.

Pointing out that the challenges of the COVID-19 experience have forced organisations to discover new and more efficient ways of delivering services, he assured staff that the Commission would continue to find alternative ways of providing quality service for the sustainable growth of the country’s copyright industries.

Mr. Asein thanked FLA for the collaboration and urged other organisations to rise up to the challenge of finding cheaper and more efficient business models and technology-based solutions to enhance the copyright administration in Nigeria. 

He expressed optimism that the training would bring about a workplace turnaround for the advancement of the Commission and its staff. He therefore urged participants to be more conversant with the emerging technologies and give their best for the good of the country.

The Director-General thanked the FLA team for their interest in assisting Government agencies to deliver on their mandates within the context of emerging technological platforms. He added, “I hope that this will, indeed, be a partnership for growth not just for the Commission but for the wider creative community.”

Giving an overview of the training, which was attended by over 40 participants comprising Directors, Deputy Directors and Assistant Directors in the Commission, the Programme Manager of FLA, Ms. Lauretta Malaka, observed that the consulting group has over 32 years’ experience in transformation and leadership training.

Lectures delivered at the interactive training sessions were: Key Levers for Delivering the Mandate and Vision of NCC, by the FLA Group Managing Director, Dr. Olu Olasode; Ethics and Excellence in the Workplace, by Ambassador (Mrs.) Sonye Allanah; and Strategy and Planning Framework, by Mr. Opeyemi Oriniowo.

Director of Regulatory, Mr. Augustine Amodu, who spoke on behalf of other NCC Directors and participants, commended the Director-General and the FLA team, expressing optimism that the knowledge gained would impact positively on the performance and working relationship of the staff of the Commission.
