LAGOS—PROFESSIONALS in all sectors must place public or employer’s interest above self. The absence of this selflessness has been a great challenge in the country, results of failures in corporate governance and inefficient administrative processes and procedures.
This was the position of Dr. George Chima, President/Chairman of Council, Chartered Institute of Administration, CIA, at the institute’s induction of new members and annual general meeting in Lagos.
According to Dr. Chima, “we read and hear about professionals who have abused their office and the confidence reposed in them. Poor corporate governance and inefficient administrative process and procedures are largely responsible for these unwholesome practices, which the Chartered Institute of Administration, CIA, is out to check and has continued to train and equip its members to effectively perform credibly.”
Also, member, House of Representatives, Mr. Michael Omogbehin (Okitipupa/Irele), said the Federal Government and private sector need to liaise with CIA and take training seriously, which will lead to high capital development instead of cutting staff.
