Akwa Ibom tasks chartered secretaries, administrators on confidentiality, secrecy
Members of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN) have been advised to continue to strictly uphold the age ethics of confidentiality and secrecy in their organisations, which are hallmarks of every reliable secretary and administrators.
Head of Civil Service of Akwa Ibom State, Mrs. Ekerebong Akpan, gave the advice at the ICSAN’s 2018 Mandatory Continuing Professional Education (MCPE), in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, noting that as key players in public and corporate governance, they should always assist their organisations to mange their time, personnel and schedule effectively, and above all be proactive and diligent at all times.
“It is interesting to observe that ICSAN has grown in leaps and bounds. This, I believe is as a result of the focused selfless and steadfast commitment of both the leaders and members to the continuous advancement of the interest of the institute.
“ICSAN plays very critical roles in the day to day functioning of organisations both in the public and private sectors…If you are diligent at your desk and can be trusted by your bosses, higher responsibilities, with greater motivation shall come your way,” She said.
Akpan stressed that as the world continues to embrace the limitless opportunities which digitalisation offers, members of the body should fully key into the new order. “Remember, Information Communication Technology (ICT) rules today’s workplace ICSAN cannot afford to lag behind. Those of your members who still require further brush-up and sharpening of skills should be encouraged and given opportunity to do so because today’s Secretaries and Administrators can only be said to be efficient, if they can freely dialogue with the computer.”
She said the vision and effort in organising the event is very much in line with government’s policy of training and retraining of the workforce for effective service delivery.
