Personal Management Office (PMO) and Management Development Institution (MDI),
recently conducted training for security attached to the VIP office on basic
protocol and diplomatic etiquettes.
The three-day training program was to build and capacitise the security personnel on basic and protocol etiquettes.
Speaking at the training session, Ebou Taal, said the training was the most engaging group he ever met and he was very optimistic that the trained given to the security officers would be very appropriate in terms of practising their duties.
During the closing ceremony, the director general of MDI, Alieu Jarju, expressed his deepest gratitude and congratulated the participants for their contribution, efforts and full strength towards the training.
He addressed the participants to be trustworthy securities as their work demanded that, saying that capacity building was a key ingredient for national development.
“You cannot perform your duty the way you want without capacity,” he declared, noting that the duty and nature of government was to make efforts on security officers to be capacitised.
The Minister of Interior, Hon. Habib Saikou Drammeh, said bringing together these resource personnel was to broaden their knowledge and skills in some techniques of their daily services.
Hon. Drammeh said without teamwork, not much could be achieved, stressing that securities are the high networked individual, because the task given to them is not an easy one.
He added that security officers must be productive because they are the guardian of their homelands as well as the protectors of their collective security.
In his statement, Samba Jawo, a participant, thanked the government of The Gambia for providing such an important and educative training for them.
He also thanked the management of MDI for a very conceptive opportunity and hoped that relevant steps would be taken to enable them to function efficiently in their daily activities.
