Council chairman wants more professionals in governance

19 September 2012, 12:11

Lagos - Mr Jide Jimoh, the Chairman of Yaba Local Council Development Area, on Tuesday advised the Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria to participate in governance to enhance development.

 Jimoh made the remark while receiving some members of the Lagos State chapter of the association who paid him courtesy visit in Yaba, Lagos.

He noted that involvement of professionals in governance would enhance quality jobs in terms of developmental projects such as infrastructure and education.

He advised professional bodies to participate actively in development at the grass-roots level, especially in the area of property development.

Mr Adewale Adeyemi, the chairman of the association, expressed the readiness of body to partner the council in project management and implementation, including revenue generation.

Adeyemi was optimistic that collaboration between councils and the professional bodies would go a long way in moving the country forward.

He urged the government to evolve a policy for use of indigenous professionals in the country’s development efforts.

The association comprises more than 24 professional bodies.
