Association urges Nigerian professionals to uphold ethics


LAGOS – Mr Gabriel Fasoto, the President, Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria (APBN), on Saturday urged Nigerian professionals to uphold the ethics of their professions.
Fasoto, also a former President of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CITN), made the plea in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
According to him, professionals must blaze the trail in ensuring that the yearnings of Nigerians for a positive change in the nation’s life become a reality.
The APBN president said that this was possible given the vintage position the professionals occupy in the country.
“This advice becomes necessary considering the level of mediocrity and corruption in our society today.
“It is my belief that high ethical standard is the only attribute that will distinguish a thorough bred professional from a mediocre.
“The association will focus on institutionalising professionalism among its members.
“This will be done by encouraging members to place the campaign of adherence and enforcement of high ethical standards in the forefront in their respective institutes,” he said.
Fasoto said that the association would continue to engage various tiers of government on utilisation of skills, knowledge and expertise of Nigerian professionals in projects execution.
He said that the association would also engage governments in ensuring improvement on compliance level of the local content requirements as provided by the law.
Fasoto said that the association would also work with its members to guarantee quality assurance on any job executed by Nigerian professionals.
According to him, the association’s achievements in this area will strengthen its relevance in the country. (NAN)
