NOA PARTNERS DGD II ON VOTER EDUCATION
As part of efforts to enlighten citizens on the forth coming general election, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in partnership with Democratic Governance for Development (DGD) has organised a one-day training programme on voter education for the Agency’s 37 State Directorates including FCT. Welcoming the participants at the event, the Director-General of NOA, Mr. Mike Omeri represented by the Director of Administration, Mr. Ado Solomon charged the Directors to take advantage of new knowledge from the training to enrich the Agency’s voter sensitization and ensure the success of the NOA/DGD partnership. He also commended the NOA State Directorates for their grassroots activities which he said have always attracted development partners to the Agency. The DG NOA commended DGD for choosing NOA as a partner for voter education in the present electioneering season. He promised that funds from the donor Agency will be judiciously expended. In a remark, the DGD Project Manager, Mr. John Abbah said that the donor agency was relying on NOA’s State Directorates for policy feedback and asked them to keep the records straight. Abba stressed the need for NOA to execute projects on time adding that a satisfactory financial statement on the project will also encourage more funding. It will be recalled that NOA has been in collaboration with other donor agencies like, UNICEF and EU which has led to the rubout activities of the Agency.
