The training with the theme: “Effective Communication and University Administration,” held on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 at the Senate Chamber, Main Campus.

Speaking during the opening ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdullahi Bala, fsssn, said Registry Department is considered as a very important Unit in the administration of the University, being a repository of the University laws and documents.

He noted that those in the administration know the kind of challenges facing the Registry in respect to students records and transcripts.

Everyday, the registry staff have contact with the staff and students for one reason or the other. Hence, the training will go a long way to enhance their communication skills both verbal and written for effective performance on their job, he said.

“In the past, the University is always loosing cases in court, essentially because of the sloppiness in the registry, but now the University has succeeded in doing a lot of cleaning work and the learning process continues,” the VC disclosed.

The Vice-Chancellor who said that he had to attend the training to give Registrar his moral support, appreciated her for what she has done for the University as this would be her last time attending such training as sitting Registrar.

He urged them to actively participate and apply the knowledge gained from the training in their respective places of work, just as he commended them for hard work and promised to extend similar training to other cadres in the Registry Department.

Speaking earlier, the Registrar of the institution, Mrs. Victoria Nnawo Kolo, who thanked the Almighty God for making the training a reality said the topic is very relevant because as an administrator if you cannot communicate, you have no business in the Registry cadre.

In his presentation, Mr. Bala Mohammed Dalhatu of the School of Science and Technology Education (SSTE) explained that it is communication that defines and coordinates an organisation by ensuring that the mutual interests and objectives of both the organisation and the individuals working are harmonised.

The presenter pointed out that organisational communication is broadly classified into internal and external. Internal communication is the communication that takes place within an organisation, while external is the communication between an organisation and its external publics.

The purpose of communication, he explained, is to pass a directive, give instruction, make a report or give information, adding that effective communication only occurs when what is intended by the sender is understood by the receiver.

He added that, the administrator was to decide whether the written or oral channel will be most effective in passing a particular message, considering the University’s established channel and communication objective.

Mr. Dalhatu noted that the University organogram provides a good idea of the channels of formal communication existing in the University.

In his remark, the Chairman of ANUPA and Deputy Registrar, (Establishment), Mr. Eli Gbadafu, said the essence of the training was to refresh the mind of the Registry staff on their daily routines. He thanked the VC for attending the training, saying that the VC was very aware of the association because he attended their inauguration when he was the DVC Academic.

The Chairman appreciated the presenter, participants and others for making the training a huge success.
