Founder of Safaudeen-In -Islam Worldwide with International and a Fellow Nigerian Institute of Management (NIM), Professor Sabit Olagoke has tasked NIM to impact on government and Nigerians the need for running a corrupt free nation.
Professor Olagoke made the call while speaking on the topic “Management: A universal key to sustainable dynamics of life” during his investitute as a Fellowship member of Nigerian Institute of Management.
He declared that there was the need for the institute to rise up and proffer solution to the ugly situation in the country with the running of a corrupt free Nigeria with sustained environment into that of a disciplined society.
“The Nigerian Institute of Management is therefore being charged to let us impact on government and the people of Nigeria on the issues of running a corruption-free nation with sanitized environment into that of a disciplined society. Design a fraud proof management techniques for government and corporate systems to adopt as well as preventing obnoxious bills and policies that may not be in the best interest of the people and the country to advance,”he said.
Professor Olagoke added that “this is not to allow the current effort of Nigerian government on economic diversification to suffer the same fate of the oil mainstay of the economy that was grossly abused into the extreme regime of Kleptocracy and abject poverty”.
According to the Cleric “well informed people are easy to govern because they will be there for the leaders to resist any incursion external or internal aggression as witnessed in Turkey”.
“There are three spheres of life that hold intact the fabric and dynamics of the world for human survival. They are; Education, Religion and Politics. Suffice it to say that this Institute cannot afford to allow quackery and mismanagement to dominate the three major spheres of life”.
Professor Olagoke noted that NIM should not fail to recommend “the concepts that can easily turn us around into high productivity culture of service and better work attitude are behavioural hierachy of needs and leadergment concepts”
“Much as Government needs to respect the NIM in this aspect, there is a dire need for us to emphasise on the following new concepts in management for better handlability and effectiveness in the dynamics of processing and harnessing our material and human resources to have a paradigm shift in Nigeria from consumerism to high exporting index, poverty to prosperity, poor attitude to better team work spirit for higher productivity”.
He maintained that in ensuring this,”the Management concepts need to be developed for right application with all sensitization effects in place and emphasis in our schools, religious systems, home and government”.
“Good Management is an immunity, let us realise that good management in governance, religion and education administration is immunity against coup, agitation, insurgence, industrial action and social vices. Good management as an immunity is better than the constitutionally entrenched immunity for leaders which is usually abused with impunity aiding corruption! Where transparency and accountability are lost, credibility is in doubt with loss of people’s trust for support!
