MR Joseph Ari, Director-General, Industrial Training Fund (ITF)is of the view its workers’ have a less than stellar attitude to their job performance which is the root cause stunting productivity and frustrating the objective which is to realize it’s corporate ideals.
Ari bared his thoughts during his speech on Monday in Jos at the ITF 2017 End of Year Performance Review Meeting which had the theme `ITF Vision: The Journey So far”.
While citing landmark achievements such as training more than 20 million Nigerians with various skills since its inception 46 years ago, he lauded workers that had carved a niche themselves in service delivery over the years.
“ITF workers must work hard; they should not be lazy. They cannot afford to be idle and waste time on gossips. They must change their attitude to duties if we are to achieve optimal results.
“We want to remain the foremost skills training development organization in Nigeria and be one of the best in the world, but our approach to work must change to achieve this.
“Discipline must be inculcated by everyone; despite several warnings, staff still stroll to work at their own time, and leave whenever they desire. We have tolerated this long enough and can no longer condone it,” said the Director General in his concluding remarks.
