Yemi-Esan wants the IoD charter to be revised

The head of the Federation’s civil service, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, called for a further review of the amended charter of the Institute of Directors, which is subject to the approval of the President, noting that there is a need to reposition the Institute for greater participation and impact. She said so during a courtesy visit by Board members of the Institute of Trustees (IoD), Nigeria, to Abuja.

Dr Yemi-Esan, who was recently inducted as a Fellow of the Institute, said it was important that the bill presented for approval to His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari be clear of any ambiguity, pointing out that if it is not properly considered, it will create confusion, especially in the public sector and continue to hamper its consent.

The head of department indicated that the list of functions in the draft law is not precise enough in the areas of regulatory powers, training, the difference between administrators in the private sector and those in the public service, as well as as the promotion of integrity in public services for greater efficiency and productivity.

In her remarks, the President and Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the Institute of Trustees of Nigeria, Dr. Ije Jidenma, FIoD commended the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation for the steps taken to further professionalize the service and make it future-ready, emphasizing that the federal government’s strong commitment to entrenching good corporate governance and ethics is noteworthy and commendable.

She said that IoD, Nigeria is a leading leadership organization that focuses on the professional and development needs of administrators, business leaders and policy makers in the country. She added that the Institute is committed to continuing the professional education and upgrading of the skills of directors, to promoting good corporate governance and best practices in the workplace and in the management of resources, both in both public and private sectors.

Dr. Jidenma, also considered that the reforms underway in the various sectors of the economy, have raised the level of expectations on the performance of the public sector and business leaders, adding that the Institute remains determined to play and to maintain its leadership role in providing the guidance and capacity development needs of its members.
