The Director General and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), Professor Charles Anosike, on Monday, hosted the President and Chairman of council of the Nigerian Institute of Management, Dr. Mrs Christiana Atako, and council members of the institute at NiMet office in Abuja.
One of the key point of discussion included the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU on training between the two agencies.
Speaking during the visit, Dr. Mrs Christiana Atako said; “On behalf of the council of Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM), I congratulate you, the Director General/Chief Executive Officer (NiMet), on your appointment last December by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, to lead this important agency of government.
Your appointment is as befitting as it is deserving and your well known pedigree of performance in your previous assignments has prepared you adequately for the challenges ahead.
 The Institute which you belong to as a Fellow is proud of you and believes that you will make a success of this new assignment. The signs of what you are bringing to the table to move the Agency forward are already showing with the great managerial and leadership direction you have provided so far”.
Atako further informed the DG/CEO of NiMet, Prof. Charles Anosike of the services NIM offers which will be beneficial to the Agency. These include but are not limited to executive training and intensive training for the membership admission programme.
Concluding, the NIM President and Council Chairman requested that the management of NiMet consider paying outstanding membership dues of staff members as a way of motivating the affected staff.
She also requested that NiMet considers sponsoring staff to attend the 2024 Annual National Management Conference (ANMC) of the institute holding in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, from 22nd to 24th September.
Responding, the DG/CEO of NiMet, Prof Charles Anosike thanked the NIM council for honouring him with the visit.
“Management is the organizing principle of any institution. NiMet’s workforce are focused on delivering on the mandate given to us by our Honourable Minister, Festus Keyamo, SAN, drawn from the Aviation Sector Roadmap for Nigeria. Part of that mandate is staff development.
The science of meteorology requires proper management and coordination. As you are aware, NiMet is a scientific organization and we have several smart people and Professors working in the Agency. We welcome the idea to collaborate with the Nigerian Institute of Management”.
Continuing, Prof. Anosike said; “We need to define the terms of the collaboration with NIM by signing an MoU which will outline the responsibilities and expectations from both NiMet and NIM. We are aware that NIM has over 200,000 members so this is good and presents an opportunity for shared experiences.
 We will use the joint platforms of NiMet and NIM to promote the science of meteorology and management, and expose these professions to young persons”.
