ICSAN restates commitment to growth of corporate governance


Chairman Governing Council, ICSAN, Samuel Kolawole

The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN), have been charged not to relent in its efforts to contribute to the growth of corporate governance and accountability in Nigeria, to increase investors’ confidence.

The institute said this has become due to the increase in the rate of unemployment, insecurity, and the unstable price of crude oil, which resulted in a volatile economic climate climaxed with the political tension in the country before the 2019 general elections.

The President/Chairman of Council, ICSAN, Samuel Kolawole, said in his address at the institute’s 45th yearly general meeting, recently in Lagos.


According to Kolawole, an informed chartered secretary and administrator will ensure compliance at all levels within an organisation, facilitating good information between board members, committees and senior management, as well as fostering an effective working relationship between executives and non-executives.

To bring improvements to corporate practices in line with international standards, the body said it has maintained the relationship with relevant agencies and regulatory bodies to ensure their voice is heard during the review of policies, regulations, and laws.

Kolawole, who gave a highlight of activities that occurred during the period, noted that the participation of the institute as a member of the Corporate Secretaries International Association (CSIA) has added value to the institute.

The Acting Registrar/Secretary to the Council, Oladunni Ogunsulire, who commended members on their support for the institute, solicited members’ suggestions to facilitate growth development of the institute.
