The Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission has held its annual ‘General Staff Retreat’ recently in Plateau State.
While speaking at the event, which encompasses all staff of the body, Executive Secretary of the Commission, Rev Yakubu Pam, disclosed that, “This retreat is aimed at preparing us for 2020 pilgrimage in the first quarter of next year.”
Rev. Pam was optimistic that the 2020 General Pilgrimage exercise would be one of the best to be conducted by the Commission.
He explained that the retreat would serve as a “veritable platform” to discuss the way forward for the Commission and also an opportunity for the zonal staff to understand the six-point agenda of the Executive Secretary.
He reaffirmed that the NCPC of yesterday is not the NCPC of today, and described the Commission as a family and, so, does not expect anything less. He equally commended the staff of the Commission as being the best in terms of commitment to service.
The Executive Secretary promised to carry every staff of the Commission along in all the pilgrimage programmes of the Commission and thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for the opportunity he had provided to serve using the NCPC platform.
Rev. Pam also assured that the Commission would continue to adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines and protocols of the Federal Government.
The theme of the NCPC General Staff Retreat for 2020 is tagged, ‘Total Transformation.’ The last time such a retreat was held in the Commission was in 2016.
