The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Prof. Isa Pantami, has underscored the importance of self-evaluation, criticism and assessment as key qualities necessary for self-improvement and enhanced service delivery. 

He made this assertion during a two-day management retreat themed “Effective management in the fourth industrial revolution” jointly organised by the Federal Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy (FMCDE) and the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in Abuja. 

The minister tasked the management and staff of the NCC with the effective performance required to mitigate emerging leadership challenges facing the telecommunications sector. 

Pantami said the government is committed to improving the intellectual capacity of its employees, seeing as critical, analytical, creative, collaborative, project management and social skills are vital to effective performance. 

“The reason for this retreat is to continue to support the institutions and agencies we supervise for performance improvement. 

“Most of the institutions are doing well, but, as the saying goes, the result of hard work is more work. Secondly, we want to make sure that our today is better than yesterday and our tomorrow is better [than] today.

“We are here to improve on the performance of work done by agencies, parastatals under the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy (FMCDE). That is why the theme is ‘Effective management for 4th Industrial Revolution,’ particularly in respect to delivering our mandate.

“[The] 4th Industrial Revolution came up with different challenges that requires us to continue to update ourselves intellectually. As it is said we must learn, unlearn and relearn.

“The Word Economy Forum (WEF) said that the skills required to be successful today, in the last five years were not in existence yesterday but [are] now the most important.

“Soft skills such as critical thinking, analytical thinking, creativity, collaborative thinking, project management skill and social skills are all vital to achieving effective management performance,” he said. 

Earlier, the executive vice chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta said the retreat would help in repositioning the commission for better performance. 

He emphasised that the programme will not only impact the commission positively but also boost better service delivery to Nigerians and Nigeria’s telecommunications industry.
