The SiLNoRF’s NC in his short but very impressive speech, reiterated the importance of equity and roles in management.
Speaking further on roles, Mr. Conteh encouraged all the Directors/Coordinators to inculcate the practice of allowing people to do their jobs or creating the space for others to step up in performing their duties. “Allowing people to play their own roles is all part of management and governance,” he maintained.

He said the training is a follow-up project to a previous one which entails a lot of things. Therefore, he encouraged the project team not to use what he referred to as the blanket approach in the implementation of the project.
