Vice Chairman of Senate Committee on Niger Delta, Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman, representing Kogi Central on the platform of Peoples Democratic (PDP) has observed that good communication skill is an indispensable factor for the achievement of success in any establishment.
Abatemi-Usman made this observation in a statement issued by his Media Assistant, Michael Jegede, at the end of a two-day workshop on communication skills and personal impact, organised for all his legislative and personal aides including two others from the office of Senator Alkali Jajere from Yobe State.
The workshop held in Maitama, Abuja was facilitated by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Protocol School of
West Africa, Nkiru Asika and sponsored by the Senators as part of their efforts to ensure maximum performance in the office.
Â Protocol School of West Africa is specialist training organisation that delivers world-class programmes in international corporate and business etiquette, protocol and communications.
Abatemi-Usman, who implored the aides to make good use of the experience they garnered during the workshop in the discharge of their duties, maintained that he has confidence in their ability to perform and achieve results.
The youngest Senator in the Upper Chamber and Member of Pan African Parliament (PAP) pointed out that â€œregardless of the size of any organisation or office â€“ be it a large firm, a small company, or even a home-based business outfit, a high level of good communication skill is needed if success must be achieved. That is basically the main reason why I decided to organise the workshop for my aides, even though I do not have any doubt about their competence and ability to perform and give me results in the interest of the people of our constituency and Nigerians in general.â€
According to the statement, areas covered at the training workshop included overview of communications, strategies to enhance communication, introduction to effective business writing, professional etiquette, personal branding, networking & art of conversation and presentation delivery.
