ICSAN Lagos chapter elects new executives to champion corporate governance

Lagos State Chapter of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN), has elected new chairman and other executive members.

Efosa Ewere who emerged as the 12th chairman of the institute and other executives were inducted recently in Lagos.

The event chaired by Olatunde Busari was attended by seasoned governance professionals including members of the Governing Council of Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN).

Busari praised Ewere’s attributes of discipline, hard work and commitment to excellence which he said remained consistent through the years he worked with her in various professional capacities.

According to a statement, Tolu Odukale, a partner and Head of Governance, Risk and Compliance at the Lagos office of KPMG Advisory Services delivered the keynote address themed, “The triad of effective governance: Engage, empower and excel,”

Highlighting the germane role of effective governance in business growth and sustainability, Odukale charged members of corporate boards to deploy these tripartite structures of engagement, empowerment and excellence in the strategic governance of their respective organisations.

In her address, Funmi Ekundayo, President Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN) and Chairman of the Governing Council, urged members to continue to promote the professionalism and ethical standards ICSAN represents.

Congratulating Ewere and the newly inducted executive committee members, Ekundayo expressed a strong conviction that Ewere was capable of leading the Lagos Chapter to achieve greater strides as the flagship chapter.

In her acceptance speech, the 12th Chairman of ICSAN Lagos Chapter, Ewere, acknowledged the strong foundation laid by past leaders of the Lagos State Chapter and pledged to grow the Lagos Chapter by strengthening the capacity of members across all cadres and promoting knowledge of corporate governance to the grassroots.
