The Hydro Electric Power Producing Areas Development Commission (HYPPADEC) says it will continue to prioritise the well-being of staff for better service delivery.
Abubakar Yelwa, managing director of HYPPADEC, made this known in a statement by Nura Wakil, the spokesperson for the commission, on Saturday in Minna.
He said the well-being of the staff was essential to the commission’s objectives of having an efficient, effective, and dedicated workforce to serve Nigerians.
Mr Yelwa, speaking during an inaugural road walk, said the exercise would be a monthly aspect of the commission to be held every last Friday of the month.
He explained that the exercise would also be held simultaneously in all the state offices of the commission.
Mr Yelwa said aside from the health benefits, physical fitness would encourage camaraderie among staff and management, adding that a fit mind is an active mind.
The commission held an intensive health week where staff members were given health talks, consultations, minor surgeries, and drugs.
A staff, Lilian Aguku, in an interview, called for the sustainability of the exercise to curtail health complications.
Another worker, Buhari Mukail, appreciated the commission’s management for the foresight, urging it to make it mandatory for all staff.
The two kilometres road walk started from the HYPPADEC headquarters to the David Mark road roundabout and back.
The managing director, management staff, and workers of the commission at the headquarters participated in the two kilometres walk.
