Welcoming the NIM team led by the chapter Chairman, Engnr. Abdul-Lawal Zubair, Prof. Anosike said: “As a scientific agency, we aim to follow global standards in what we do. In line with the thinking of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), NiMet will support staff of the agency to improve their management and leadership skills.

“The Honourable Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Mr Festus Keyamo, SAN, has also harped on training and staff welfare. NiMet is committed to helping the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu government to achieve its vision in this regard.

“As a fellow of NIM and a member of the Maitama-Abuja chapter of the institute, I thank the leadership of NIM for the solidarity visit.

“I am honoured and excited at the same time because I can see collaborative partnerships between NiMet and NIM.

“NIM can support NiMet in the area of capacity building with emphasis on leadership and management training.

“This visit is also a good opportunity to invite the NIM leadership to our flagship event, the public presentation of the Seasonal Climate Prediction (SCP) which will hold on Tuesday, 20th February, 2024.

“NiMet is always interested in innovative partnerships through which the agency can share and widen the distribution of its various weather and climate-related publications.

“As part of our discussions on collaboration with NIM, I suggest that NIM considers setting up a forum where NiMet meteorologists can share some of the data the agency generates with younger members of NIM and other stakeholders”.
