New Permanent Secretary Pledges To Promote Mining, Steel Production

Dr Mary Ogbe, the new Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Mines and Steel Development, has vowed to enhance the Nigerian mining and steel sector by offering answers to current problems.

Ogbe made the vow on Friday in Abuja during a farewell ceremony for Dr Oluwatoyin Akinlade, the former Permanent Secretary, that was hosted by the ministry.

She requested assistance from the personnel so that she could fulfil the ministry's mission and goals.

“I am ready and committed to strenghtening the ministry toward proferring solutions to the challenges facing the nation.

“Therefore, all hands must be on deck as the nation looks up to the ministry in solving its socio-economic problems,” she said.

The permanent secretary promised to operate on a "open door" approach to foster dialogue for the smooth operation of the sectors.

Ogbe stated that her goal was to guarantee full use of the minerals that were accessible in order to diversify the economy of the country.

Akinlade previously referred to Ogbe as an experienced administrator with a proven track record of producing high-caliber results.

She vowed to support the ministry's expansion and the development of the mining sector without reservation.

The former permanent secretary urged the ministry's administration and personnel to support Ogbe in carrying out her responsibilities and finishing unfinished business.

She said that the projects will bring in money for the country and provide wealth and work for the throngs of young people.

Additionally, Dr Mohammed Suleiman, the director of human resources, highlighted the workforce's readiness to collaborate effectively with the incoming permanent secretary.

Suleiman declared that they were dedicated to growing the ministry and the economy.

He congratulated Akinlade for her significant contributions to the ministry's accomplishments, particularly the expansion of the nation's mining industry.

At the event, the ministry announced its Electronic Document Management System (EDMS), which will electronically store, organise, and manage government documents and improve performance.
