He said:” We are the leaders of this organisation and we cannot expect angels to come down and help us.”

 

Bawa stated that the Retreat was convened to create a family atmosphere, where “we are expected to tell ourselves the truth – the whole truth.

 

In his remarks, the Secretary to the Commission, Dr. George Ekpungu, said there was need, at every point in time, for an organisation to evaluate its activities, with the hindsight of restrategising to advance its mission and vision.

 

According to him, “We have gathered here for the Retreat, in order to take stock of our activities in the past year across all our departments and operations, evaluate them, and come up with projections for the current year, while restrategising to achieve the set goals.”
