The National Senior Citizens Centre (NSCC) on Thursday officially opened its head office in Abuja to strengthen its operation and enhance mandate delivery.

The director-general, Emem Omokaro, during the opening, lauded the efforts of Sadiya Umar Farouq, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Department.

“For the past 365 days, the minister has been committed to ensuring that we not only take off, but we’re also stabilised.

“So on this occasion, I want to thank you very much for your being there for us at all times.

“To the glory of God, we will use this office to deliver on our mandate,” Mr Omokaro said.

Also speaking, the minister said the centre had come a long way and done so much even without an office at inception.

“The centre is meant to take care of senior citizens across the country. The ministry will continue to give the centre the needed support.

“To the glorify of God Almighty, I hereby open the Head Office of NSCC for its operation. I wish you Allah’s guidance and protection on your responsibility and service to humanity,” Ms Farouq said.

Since the inauguration of the centre’s governing board on June 7, 2020, it has been operating without an office.
