The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) is to partner with the Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM) on capacity building of its meteorologists, scientists and other staff.
The Director General and Chief Executive Officer of the agency, Professor Charles Anosike stated this in his office on Friday, 19th January, 2024, when members of Maitama -Abuja chapter of the institute paid him a courtesy visit.
Welcoming the NIM team led by the chapter Chairman, Engnr. Abdul-Lawal Zubair, Prof. Anosike said; “As a scientific agency, we aim to follow global standards in what we do. In line with the thinking of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), NiMet will support staff of the agency to improve their management and leadership skills. The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr Festus Keyamo, SAN, has also harped on training and staff welfare. NiMet is committed to helping the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu government to achieve its vision in this regard”.
Continuing, Professor Anosike said; “As a fellow of NIM and a member of the Maitama-Abuja chapter of the institute, I thank the leadership of NIM for the solidarity visit. I am honoured and excited at the same time because I can see collaborative partnerships between NiMet and NIM. NIM can support NiMet in the area of capacity building with emphasis on leadership and management training. This visit is also a good opportunity to invite the NIM leadership to our flagship event, the public presentation of the Seasonal Climate Prediction (SCP) which will hold on Tuesday, 20th February, 2024”.
“NiMet is always interested in innovative partnerships through which the agency can share and widen the distribution of its various weather and climate-related publications. As part of our discussions on collaboration with NIM, I suggest that NIM considers setting up a forum where NiMet meteorologists can share some of the data the agency generates with younger members of NIM and other stakeholders”, Prof. Anosike concluded.
Responding, Engnr. Abdul-Lawal Zubair
congratulated Prof. Anosike on his appointment and assured that the Nigerian Institute of Management will collaborate with NiMet in the areas listed by the DG/CEO.
Highlight of the visit was exchange of gifts between the two institutions, decoration of Prof. Anosike with NIM muffler with a charge  to him to always represent the institute and the branch positively.
