The Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF)  will host an international workshop on Assistance and Protection Against Chemical Weapons.

A statement by Mr Adebiyi Bolaji, Director of Press in the SGF office, in Abuja on Friday said the workshop would hold between Oct. 31 and Nov. 4.

Bolaji said the workshop was organised by the Political and Economic Affairs Department, in the SGF office in conjunction with the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Netherlands.

According to him, a team of experts from OPCW will participate at the workshop as resource persons.

“The workshop will focus on issues that seek to identify toxic threats and hazards; as well as support the development of national chemical risk assessment reports.

“It will also identify gaps based on the audit of country’s current capabilities and standards to be achieved in assistance and protection.

“It will finally assist in the development of a counter chemical threats capability as basis for a National Protection Programme,” he said.

Bolaji said the participants would be drawn from critical stakeholders in both the public and private sectors in Nigeria.
