I am pleased to appreciate and welcome you all to the inauguration of various standing committees of this great organization. As we all know a new leadership was sworn in in our last national RA Jamboree led by I, Coun. Bitebo Eregoba and the leadership saw to the need of constituting various committees to foster team work, learning and bringing up new leaders in the body through activities carried out through these committees. The inauguration had to be done online to make each committee begin work in earnest as we don’t have any physical meetings until next year. We thank God for technology which has made this possible. The committees we are inaugurating today aside the immediate and remote staff of the Marshal include:
Ø Literature Committee
Ø Historic Centenary Library Committee
Ø Disciplinary Committee
Ø Material Committee
Ø Ethics and Etiquette Committee
Ø National RA Band
Ø Centenary Project Committee
Ø Programme Planning Committee
Ø Ranking Committee
Ø Missions Committee
Ø Anti-Social Vices Club
Ø Finance Committee
Ø Publicity/Media Committee
Ø Empowerment/ Networking Committee
Ø Parade Committee
At this juncture, it is important to emphasize that we should all be aware of the importance of this assignment given to us. In line with this, all committees will be continually supervised, accessed and monitored to ensure they are always up and doing as regards the assignment given to them. We have members who are looking up to us and we cannot fail them.
The committees all have their primary terms of reference but all committees also have the general terms of refence which are:
Members of all Committee were carefully selected based on your pedigree as sustainable RA members who have served in one capacity or the other over the years. I have no doubt that you would carry out the assignment to the best by of your ability and in the interest of the organization.
All Committees are expected to turn in their first proposal/reports by our first Council meeting in February 2022.
With these few remarks, it is my honour to officially inaugurate all Committee of the RAN in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, Amen.
Coun. Bitebo Eregoba (Post Plen.)
