Noraini: Higher Education Ministry staff should use social media wisely



PETALING JAYA: Higher Education Ministry staff should use social media platforms wisely, says Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad (pic).

“This is important to ensure that the government secrets are always kept. Use the right channels to express your views and opinions,” said the Higher Education Minister.

She said that it is important to be smart in evaluating and filtering all the information received.

“I believe the (Ministry’s) top management is always ready to accept any matters that are raised; more so if it can help improve the Ministry’s delivery of service,” she said in a virtual speech at the Ministry’s Excellent Services Award 2020 ceremony on Thursday (July 22).

Noraini added that all inquiries or complaints submitted through social media, she said, should be taken into account and that providing feedback should be expedited.

“We are the ministry’s ambassadors in disseminating information about our services to the people. (Such as) as of July 19, a total of 38 higher education institutions designated as vaccination centres (PPV) have been operating in the country.

“These include public and private universities, university teaching hospitals and polytechnics.

“These PPVs have the capacity to provide 35,000 doses of vaccines per day or 1.05 million doses per month,” she said, adding that another example includes the ministry providing for the welfare and needs of higher education institution students, such as food banks and data plans.

Commenting on the Excellent Services Award 2020, Noraini said a total of 1,212 of the ministry’s staff received the award.

She said it is one of the methods the government practises in recognising its employees who show excellent work performance.

“May this recognition inject enthusiasm, inspire and become a role model to all of our staff in creating an excellent employment ecosystem,” she said.
