Several eminent Nigerians including former head of state, General Yakubu Gowon, Dan Masani Kano, Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule, Secretary to the Government of the federation, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim and dignitaries from all walks of life, converge at Merit House on Tuesday, 20th October, 2012 for a one day sensitization workshop organized by the Abuja branch of the Public Complaints Commission.
A statement from the FCT Commissioner of the agency, Barrister Obunike Ohaegbu, said that the event will be hosted by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Senator Bala Mohammed, while a galaxy of guest speakers including the secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chairman national human rights Commission, EFCC chairman, Head of the Civil service of the federation, Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs as well as members of the national Assembly to be led by the deputy president of the Senate and Deputy speaker, were all expected to grace the occasion.
The Commissioner described the workshop as timely, especially as it is coming at a time, when most Abuja residents are grossly unaware of how to go about obtaining administrative justice, or seeking redress when wronged by their workplace. He described the array of speakers for the seminar as men who have distinguished themselves in the various fields of human endavour. It would recalled that as Head of State, Gen. Gowon established the Udoji Panel that recommended the establishment of the Public Complaints Commission while Alh. Maitama Sule was appointed the pioneer Chief Commissioner of the Commission by the Murtala Muhammed administration.
