ICSAN Inducts New Members, Enjoins Inductees to be Ethical, Professional
The Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN) has inducted a crop of new members charging them to always be professional and ethical in their conducts.
The President/Chairman of Council of the institute, Bode Ayeku, gave this counsel at the induction ceremony for over 400 new members cutting across Graduates and Associates categories of membership.
While urging them to be above board, the President warned, ‘We have zero-tolerance for any act of ethical aberration. Any member found guilty of gross misconduct in defiance of dictates of ethics will have his or her certificate withdrawn and membership forfeited. We are committed to this principle without fear or favour, no matter whose ox is gored.’
According to the chairman in council, the institute has zero tolerance for misconducts, hence any member found guilty, and in defiance of dictates to ethics, would have his or her certificate withdrawn, and membership forfeited.
“It is part of our ethical injunction that you should be the corporate governance’s conscience of any organisation and establishment you find yourself.
“All you have to do is to keep moving resolutely forward, toiling with passion and courage to gather requisite experience and hope for success that normally accompanies self-sacrifice, hard work and diligence.
“As a Chartered Secretary and Administrator, there is a lot expected from you by many stakeholders. At the organisation where you work, associations you belong and on many other fronts in which you connect with people, you are naturally expected to invariably exhibit and manifest the attributes of a chartered secretary and administrator. You must always strive to discharge your responsibilities with a touch of excellence in order to live up to the coveted appellation,”
While delivering the induction lecture on the theme “Charting a Course for the Chartered Secretary and Administrator in the Present Dispensation: Issues for Consideration”, Prof. Deji Olanrewaju, a corporate governance specialist and Dean, School of Law and Securities Studies, Babcock University, underscored the strategic role of a chartered secretary and administrator in the socio-economic development of a nation.
The guest lecturer also gave insight into opportunities and possibilities the profession provides while charging members to adhere to ethics and professionalism.
Despite all the mind-boggling changes of the new world dominated by use of robots, internet of things, and artificial intelligence, the president implored inductees to remain steadfast in their commitment to ethics,
According to him, “It is part of our ethical injunction that you should be the corporate governance’s conscience of any organisation and establishment you find yourself.”
