•Set to commence work on permanent site
The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria, Ahmed Lawan Kuru, is the guest speaker at this year’s fellows’ luncheon of the Institute of Directors Nigeria, themed “Determinants of Growth in Transition Economies.”
The event, which also has the founder and Chairman of Emzor Pharmaceutical Limited, Stella Okoli as Chairman and former Attorney General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Christopher Adebayo Ojo, as s§§ pecial guest, is scheduled to hold on Thursday 24 May, 2018 at The Civic Centre, Ozumba Mbadiwe Street, Victoria Island, Lagos from 11.a.m.
According to the Director General/Chief Executive of the IoD Nigeria, Mr. Bamidele Alimi, this year’s Fellows’ Luncheon would have in attendance directors and executives from major industries in Nigeria deliberating and they would be deliberating on the Determinants of Growth in Transition Economies. It would also serve as a platform for the directors and corporate executives to network.
Also reiterating the objectives of the luncheon, Chairman of the Fellows Committee of the Institute, Ms. Bennedikter Molokwu, said besides bringing together business executives from different sectors of the economy, it was a platform to network, share experiences, gain new insights on key issues of importance to Corporate Nigeria, as well as nurture an enduring class of fellows and distinguished fellows for the institute.
Meanwhile, the Institute has announced the commencement of its cutting-edge permanent headquarters at 53 Glover Road, Ikoyi Lagos.The seven-storey edifice will serve as the home of the 35 years old organisation in Nigeria.
The Director General and Chief Executive of the Institute, Mr. Dele Alimi, dropped the hint when he led a team of staff members on tour of the site, saying the Institute had earlier vacated the site for a temporary headquarter to allow for preliminary work by the various consultants. He said the Institute will now return to the site to construct a state-of-the-art structure, which would serve as the national headquarters of the Institute.
Alimi said a key element of an organisation’s sustainability was operating from its own premises, which would definitely be an ideal environment for both the members and staff of the Institute.
“Effectively, the new IoD Nigeria headquarters has been designed to meet the needs and aspirations of all stakeholders and every member of the Institute will be excited and proud to visit such a spectacular office. It will be a highly impressive structure, which will have ample space for training, events and programmes of the Institute. It was particularly designed with great attention to members’ yearnings and aspirations for a befitting headquarters for their Institute. I assure you that it will be the first of its kind in the whole of Africa,” the DG said.
