The Citizenship and Leadership Training Centre (CLTC) has a new Acting Director General. He is Mr Bawa Bitrus Jonah.
Bawa’s emergence follows the exit of Mr Michael Fawole who on Thursday last week retired from the service of the organisation and formally handed over to him, being the most senior Director at the Centre.
Bawa 54, from Yobe State, has served CLTC in various capacities and was the Centre’s Director, Human Resources Management before his new position.
The new CLTC’s Acting Director-General holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from the University of Maiduguri and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Nigeria (UNN) Nsukka. He is also an Alumni of the Nigeria Institute of Management.
In a meeting with top management of the Centre after his taking over, Bawa described himself as a team-player and solicited his colleagues to assist him with positive contributions for the survival and progress of the Centre which he described as a family.
CLTC is a parastatal under the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports and is saddled with the responsibility, to among other things, provide strategic training on morals, ethics, self-confidence and self-reliance, patriotism and responsible citizenship as well as other social related challenges of the society.
Over the years, the Centre has trained hundreds of thousands of Nigerian citizens both old and young, including, but not limited to officers and men of the military, the Navy, Air Force, the Police, Immigration Service, Customs and others, from different organisations across the country.
