The President of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators of Nigeria (ICSAN), Mr Taiwo Gbenga Owokalade, recently led a high-powered delegation of the Institute’s top executives on a courtesy visit to the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) of Nigeria.
In his opening remarks, the President noted that the visit was the first of its kind to any regulator since his assumption of office in August last year as they had taken time to scan and prioritise partnering with the FRC as an essential agency.
He further added that, ‘For now, we [ICSAN] are the only institute registered by the National Assembly to conduct examinations into company secretarial practice.’
He also noted that the Institute was in the process of transmuting its current name – ICSAN, into Chartered Governance Institute of Nigeria (CGIN) in line with global best practice even as an official Stamp for professional practice had been introduced to check the activities of and weed out impostors.
The FRC Chief Executive, Ambassador Shuaibu Adamu Ahmed, in his remarks, said, ‘We, in the FRC also hold ICSAN in very, very high esteem. It is one of those key institutes that we are proud to be associated with.’
