SGF office to tap into IoD training programmes

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Engineer BabachirDavid Lawal has assured the Governing Council of the Institute of Directors (IOD) that his office would avail itself of the training programmes of the Institute in the drive to build the human resource capacity of the Civil Service, especially at the senior management level, reports ITRealms.

Lawal said this while addressing the council during a courtesy call, enjoining them to design courses that will develop participants while on the job and also in retirement. 

The SGF noted that the institute has been involved in the training of members of the Armed Forces and advised that they should also design programmes that will benefit top officials of government in revenue generating agencies such as Customs and Excise and the Federal Inland Revenue Service.

President and Chairman of Council, Institute of Directors, Mr. Yemi Akeju, in his remarks, said the purpose of the visit to include the desire of the Institute to partner with the federal government to promote corporate governance values that will reduce corruption and also assist government to review policies through well researched views and opinions.

Mr. Akeju also used the occasion of the visit to inform the SGF about the official adoption of a new IOD’s Independent Director’s Scheme. 

He said these Independent Directors could play vital roles on boards of public and private sector organisations and pledged to make the register of Independent Directors available for the use of the federal government.
