SCGN tasks new members on good governance
The Society for Corporate Governance Nigeria (SCGN) has enjoined its newly inducted fellows to be upright in the discharge of their duties.
The call was made by Mr. Pascal Dozie at the 2017 annual president’s dinner/induction ceremony of SCGN held in Lagos.
He is the society’s president.
According to him, a honorable character would not only promote good corporate governance but also best practices in the country.
He said: “Good corporate governance is about building credibility, ensuring transparency and accountability as well as maintaining an effective channel of information disclosure.
“It is also about building trust and sustaining confidence among the various interest groups that make up an organization.”
He also noted that corporate governance encompasses practically every sphere of management, thus, he enjoined the inductees to adhere to good corporate governance practices.
Dozie disclosed that the admission of the inductees as members of the society was to be a catalyst to the campaign for good corporate governance both locally and internationally.
He admonished the 39 new inductees for 2017 to continue the culture of impeccable character to serve their organizations and the country with honour and integrity.
Also, the founding president of the society, Dr. Christopher Kolade, unveiled the 17th edition of the Journal of Corporate Governance, which features current issues and trends in Nigeria.
The event, which had over 110 guests in attendance was supported by Eko Electricity Distribution Plc and some individual members of the society.
