Yaba College of Technology’s Registrar, Mrs Biekoroma Charity Amapakabo, has said that she has expanded the registry so that people can exhibit their potentials which will bring about efficiency in service delivery.
Amapakabo made this disclosure while receiving her award of excellence for competency and human transformation at the National Impact Glitz Magazine symposium at Yusuf Grillo Auditorium, in the school with theme: ‘The Pathway to progressive Nigeria, Our past, present and critical look into the future.
While dedicating her award to the first lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, Amapakabo noted that the she is from the same hometown with her and has also assisted her in my career.
She also asserted that her challenges as the registrar are normal challenges faced by any other head of administration because the position involves dealing with almost everything that has to do with the institution and individuals.
“When I became Registrar, because I am part of the system, the first thing I did was to expand the registry; I created new offices so that people can exhibit their potentials. The expansion is to bring about efficiency in service delivery. I also ensured that there is an improved capacity building. Many of my officials have been properly trained, she said
”Sometimes in life you know that you have responsibilities to discharge, I’m a career woman, and I am just doing my work in my own corner, and some people just notice that I am doing it well, and they have decided to give me an award. I think that I have worked hard enough; you should realize that it is not easy to get to the peak.
“As the registrar of YABATECH, it is not easy to get there. My challenges as the registrar are normal challenges faced by any other head of administration because as a registrar, you deal with almost everything that has to do with the institution and sometimes things don’t turn out the way you expect them to; most of the time due to lack of funding and sometimes capacity”.
The Dean Liberal Studies, Mrs Akpenyi who was also honoured with professionalism and commitment to duty award noted that she was called the people’s dean because she has brought peace to the school of Liberal studies.
She also sad that she brought numerous academic changes it is in my tenure that we started Mass communication department.
“We’ve had numerous international conference organised for the school of liberal studies. And even at departmental levels, we have organised both international and local conferences. And I have staffs that are highly qualified; liberal studies, as the name implies does not only have mass communication as a department’’. She said
