The outgoing National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) Director-General, Brigadier General Francis Sanziri, has made a shocking revelation that over 80 percent of NADMO staff have no training in disaster management.

"Lack of training for staff before they are even deployed. I can tell you more than 80% of staff have no training on disaster management. That is absurd and that accounts for so many complaints about our effectiveness and efficiency," he said.

"We equally lack logistics insufficient budgetary allocation for in-house administration and of course late approvals for the purchase of relief items."

Warning that NADMO may be incapable of dealing with future disasters with the way things are now, he appealed to the government to restructure the organisation and provide regular training for Staff on disaster management issues.

The Senior Minister, Yaw Osarfo Marfo, who represented the president at the ceremony poked fun at the average worker's understanding of the role of NADMO.

"The problem is that if you ask an average worker at NADMO what do you do, his answer will be I distribute rice and sugar. That is not it," he said.

He, however, stressed the importance of training workers to acquire the right skills.

"It is very important that people working are trained specifically to have skills to do their work properly," he added.
