FMT&A embarks on capacity building for members

THE Federal Ministry of Transport, FAAN, NCAA, NAMA, AIB and other Organizations Staff Cooperative Multipurpose Society (FMT&A) has organized an enrichment seminar for its members.
Anchored by the Centre for Cooperative Training, Research and Development of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, the two-day seminar which held at the Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON) Badagry focused on critical areas of empowerment such as Financial Intelligence, Taxation of Income of Public Servants, Utilization of Cooperative Fund, Health Tips for Healthy Living among others.
Speaking on the training workshop, the President of the Cooperative Society, Mr Babatunde Sotin said the quest to build capacity of members particularly in entrepreneurship derives from the determination of his administration to invest in human development. He said, “you are aware that in the past couple of years we have invested in building structures for the society-guest house, offices, etc. Going from there, we now want to encourage and assist members who have business ideas to go into agriculture or any other business that can bring in additional income. Soft loans will be provided for members after feasibility studies and other legalities are conducted, but before they do that, they need to be equipped with the necessary skills and know-how, hence this programme.” Sotin said this new direction became imperative as “it would ensure that members do not retire into penury as several cases have shown in the past.” He also revealed that more training programmes have been lined up to accommodate as many members as possible in the near future.
The training is in line with keeping the FCT&A’s promise to develop capacity of members towards effective entrepreneurship.
