ICSAN boss tells government to diversify economy
President of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN), Samuel Kolawole, has called on Federal Government to be focused and resilient in delivery of all promises made to Nigerians.
He made this known at ICSAN 26th investiture held last week.According to Kolawole: “There is urgent need to find alternative sources of income to run our economy, but the fact is there are vested interest all across board who would work against all odds not to make it happen. The government needs to be resolute because all their promises to the people are appealing but it comes with the challenges of bringing it to past.”
The ICSAN’s 26th president said: “In other to achieve best practises and ensure that appropriate things are done, our aim is to be an advocate corporate governance, organise public lectures to educate Nigerians, liaise with government authorities and agencies responsible for it because corporate governance is essential to the economic and social development of our nation. It is what is making western world progress.”
He further reiterated the need to “incorporate corporate governance into our lifestyle as a nation, making sure Nigeria get to its desired height among leading nation’s globally. There should be more focus on governance and less acrimony. The idea of the Executive, the Legislature and judicial rift do not inspire Nigerian. The government needs to close its ranch and ensure they pass a message of unity to Nigerians that inspire Nigerians to believe in the government.”
Meanwhile the Oyo State Governor, Sen. Abiola Ajimobi, has commended Mr. Samuel Kolawole on on his investiture as the President and Chairman of ICSAN. Represented by the Anthony general and commissioner for justice in Oyo State Hon. Seun Abimbola said: “With the emergence of Mr. Kolawole as ICSAN President, the institute is in a good hand.” Adding that: “Private sector is the strength of a growing economy but corporate governance is what stirs it”
In the same vein, the immediate past president of ICSAN, Professor Nat Ofo however commended the new president passion and commitment in taking ICSAN to the next level: “There is nothing as being in charge. I expect the new Chairman and President of ICSAN Samuel Kolawole to do things he wants to see happen because ideas are not enough but bringing it to fusion is what count. The need to be a custodian of corporate governance cannot be over enfranchised.”
