President of Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN), Mr. Samuel Kolawole, has called on the Federal Government to seek for alternative source of income to shore up the economy, insisting that over-reliance on oil should be ended.
Speaking at ICSAN’s 26th investiture ceremony, Kolawole said: “There is an urgent need to find alternative source of income to run our economy but the fact is; there are vested interests across board who would work not to make it happen. The government should be focused and resilient in making sure they deliver on all promises being made to the people. The government needs to be resolute because all their promises to the people are appealing but it comes with the challenges of bringing it to pass.”
According to him ,In other to achieve best practices and ensure that appropriate things are done, ICSAN has undertaken to organize public lectures to educate Nigerians and liaising with government authorities and agencies responsible, saying corporate governance is essential to the economic and social development of our nation.
“There is a need to incorporate corporate governance into our lifestyle as a nation, making sure Nigeria get to its desired height among leading nations globally. There should be more focus on governance and less acrimony between the Executive, the Legislature and Judiciary.”
