The executive secretary, Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC), Rev. Yakubu Pam, has assured the National SERVICOM Nigeria of quality service delivery to pilgrims.
He gave the assurance Thursday while playing host to members of the National SERVICOM Nigeria at the NCPC headquarters in Abuja.
Rev. Pam said he was delighted to host SERVICOM in the Commission, adding, “The government is one and the services are one.”
He said the Commission already had a working SERVICOM team, and that the team was being led by a director.
“When good leaders are in positions of authority people rejoice, as such we should honour our citizens through our services so that they can be respected and be received anywhere they go. We have pilgrims and we expect them to rejoice,” he said.
Earlier, the national coordinator/CEO of Servicom Nigeria, Mrs. Nnena Akajemeli, in her remarks, said they were in the Commission on an advocacy visit to commend the NCPC boss “for a good job so far and to remind the Commission on what the government is doing to improve the service of Nigerians.”
According to her, the purpose of their visit is to charge the Commission to create a Service Charter unit that will help to add value to the activities of the Commission in order to achieve favourable feedback from the pilgrims.
Also speaking, the director, planning, research, programme development, who also doubles as the NCPC Servicom chairman, said the concept of Servicom “is not just emphasised, but has been engraved into the operations and activities of the Commission.”
In a related development, the chairman of the NCPC board, Rev. Yomi Kasali, charged Nigerian pilgrims in Israel on good conduct.
This was contained in a press statement issued by theCommission’s head of media and public relations, Celestine Toruka.
It indicated that Kasali, who is the leader of the 8th batch of pilgrims currently in Israel, gave the charge while addressing them on arrival at the Ben Gurion International Airport, Tel- Aviv, Israel Wednesday.
He said, “I urge you all to comport yourselves in Israel as good citizens of Nigeria.
You should embrace the virtues of Christian values while performing your pilgrimage exercise. Having the right spiritual attitude in the Holy Land will surely ensure an enduring encounter with God before the end of your pilgrimage exercise.”
