He also explained that participants were treated to Aerobics and Health talk in a bid to ensure they maintain a healthy lifestyle.

According to him, “The training programme for the selected 443 staffers which will be conducted in streams started with the executive cadre and expected to cut across all cadres of Staff”.

“The next two streams due for next week will focus on Understanding Digital Transformation and the Companies and Allied Matters Act, CAMA, 2020”.
