We provide administrators in industries CIA president
The President, Chartered Institute of Administration, Mr Samson Olopade, has said that the institute has been contributing to the nation’s human capital development by producing professionals in the field of administration.
he said in Lagos during the induction of those who qualified for the full membership, fellowship and associate cadres of the institute.
he said the administrators who qualified through the institute were holding strategic positions in different private industries and public sector of the economy.
Among those inducted was a former Minister of State for Power, Mohammed Wakil.
Olopade noted that the process of certifying the 178 inductees for the full membership, fellowship and associates grades were rigorous, because the institute prides itself with excellence and professionalism.
he said, “The Institute does not only update the skills and knowledge of its members, but also regularly lends its voice to issues of national importance, especially as they concern the practice of Administration.
“Similarly, the Institute has been contributing to human capital development by qualifying professionals in the field of Administration who today occupy strategic positions in public and private sectors of the economy.”
Olopade added that the institute ran several programmes throughout the year to update the knowledge and skills of members.
“These programmes include continuing membership education and training which include workshops, conferences, symposia, seminars, public lectures and several training courses,” he said.
As members, you would be required to subscribe and adhere strictly to the Institute’s code of ethics. As professionals, we are required to place public or employer’s interest above self interest in our respective organizations. This has been a great challenge to our nation and many professionals have failed in this area.
he warned the new inductees not to abuse their office and confidence reposed in them.
Olopade stated that poor corporate governance and inefficient administrative processes and procedures were largely responsible for most of the unwholesome practices identified among administrators.
he also advised them to continue to participate in the activities of the institute, pay all their dues and be good ambassadors.
