CMD boss bags board membership of Afrcan Business School


ABUJA – Dr. Kabir Usman, the Director-General of the Centre for Management Development (CMD), has been appointed as a member of the Governing Board and Pro Chancellor of African Business School (ABS).
A statement by Alhaji Abdulkadir Ibrahim, Media Consultant to the director-general, on Tuesday in Abuja, said Usman had been formally installed at the 15th anniversary of the school.
The occasion was a combined Convocation, Matriculation and Investiture of new Fellows and Call to Hall of Fame celebrations of the school in Abuja.
He succeeded the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, while Dr David Graves replaced the current Chairman of National Universities Commission (NUC) and one-time Federal Commissioner of Education, retired Col. Ahmadu Ali, whose tenures ended.
The school is one of the fully accredited independent business institutions in Africa that offers quality professional education in administration, accounting, information technology and marketing.
Usman said at a Dinner in honour of the new fellows that education, leadership, management and administration were keys to transformation.
He urged the graduates and the fellows to use the knowledge and skills they acquired to join in the task of transforming the society.
Usman said there were a lot of business and employment opportunities that could be harnessed to solve some of the social and economic problems of the country, especially with the investments in the telecommunications sector.
The statement quoted the Minister for Special Duties, Alhaji Kabiru Turaki, as saying that the educational policy of President Goodluck Jonatahan’s administration focused more on vocational and professional education for Nigerian youths.
He implored the graduates to be good ambassadors of the school and urged them to fulfil the obligations expected of them by contributing positively to the progress and development of the society. (NAN)
