Sports minister Solomon Dalung in Abuja on Thursday inaugurated the governing boards of the Citizenship and Leadership Training Centre, the National Youth Service Corps and the National Institute for Sports.
Alhaji Abubakar Bada is the chairman of the CLTC while Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima is chairman of the NIS board. Ambassador Fatimah Abubakar is the chair of the NYSC.
Speaking on the occasion, Dalung warned the board members against meddling with the daily routines of the agencies but to formulate policies.
He said, “The role of the governing boards is primarily to drive general policy formulation for implementation by the management teams of the agencies, not to get involved in the day to day running of agencies except the chairmen and members who are statutorily saddled with executive functions.
“Your appointments into the boards of these parastatals should be seen as a clarion call to duty and an invitation to selfless service to our fatherland.”
