CPN tasks professionals on improved standards

The Computer Professionals (Registration Council of Nigeria), (CPN),has urged Information Technology firms and professionals operating in the country to focus more on meeting the legal requirements as stipulated in the Act and conform with the code of ethics and professional conduct.

Registrar, CPN, Mr. Sikiru Shehu, in a press statement on the Council’s forthcoming IT Professionals’ Assembly, noted that there has been growing understanding on the use of IT both in government and in the private sector.

He also said that this underscored the increasing investment that both government and the private sector were now putting into Information Technology.

Pointing out that in the quest towards fulfilling its mandate of promoting professional excellence, CPN would continue to ensure that firms and individuals offering services in the IT industry do so professionally and also with commensurate returns on their investment.

He further said that the era in which quacks and half-baked persons hijacked IT jobs only to offer very disappointing services must come to an end, stressing that this would be one of the major issues to be discussed at the forthcoming Information Technology Professionals’

Assembly.“IT has come to now play a central role in national development and there is need for effective compliance with legal requirements by individuals and firms. It is important there that CPN plays a role at ensuring that this is accomplished,” he said.

Mr. Shehu emphasized that this year’s Information Technology Professionals’ Assembly that is coming up in Abuja billed in Abuja from July 1–2, would once again serve as a veritable platform for discussing issues that would take the industry to a new level.

As said by him, the theme of this year’s event is “IT: An Imperative for National Development”. This year’s assembly will focus on the need to ensure that professionals put in their best for the realisation of national developmental goals and aspirations.

He submitted that the recent directive by the Federal Government for the National ICT4D action plan to be implemented, CPN would be in the forefront of pursuing the realisation of this plan by ensuring that professionals were in the right places in government establishments.
