She added that, the drilling exercise which was organised with support from Christian Aid and Disability Rights Fund (RDF) was aimed at imparting new knowledge amongst members of APAM secretariat on internal control systems management especially in accounts and procurement.
She also said that on governance, they wanted to equip the secretariat team with information regarding safeguarding policies in order to avoid lapses in safeguarding the rights of APAM employees and also persons with albinism in the country.
