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.
