    He explained that his mandate was to ensure that there is a total transformation stressing that, “that is exactly what I am going to do. Collectively, we shall drive the transformation agenda.

     

    “I am for work. We can be friends if you toil the part of work but if you don’t, you will have yourself to blame”, he said.

     

    He asserted that he would not tolerate a situation where staff would be masquerading as contractors saying, “so many of our staff are contractors. How can you be functioning as an operator and be a contractor in the same system?”.

     

    Mohammed told members of the Executive Management of the company to brace up to change adding that for change management, “we have to inculcate and entrench it into the system. If you are changed today or moved, please, don’t think that you are not worthy. Maybe, there is a new space that needs to be developed that requires your expertise and experience. Please, don’t take it personally at all”.

    The Chief Executive Officer was optimistic about repositioning the company for efficient service delivery in such a manner that would be profitable to all the stakeholders.

    The Chief Executive Officer who was optimistic about the achievability of his programmes urged the staff of the company to redouble their efforts towards the optimization of their services.

     

    Mohammed who no doubt a round peg in a round hole promised to prioritize staff welfare such as job security and a conducive working environment called on staff to eschew all sorts of vices, rumour-mongering and backbiting stressing that management under his watch would not tolerate indolence, non – performance, dereliction of duty as well as truancy from staff.

     

    He, therefore, sued for cooperation and understanding of staff to enable the company to meet statutory performance targets that would ultimately translate to profit-making adding, “Our doors are open to suggestions and any out-of-the-box initiative that will move the company forward”.
