NIPC is working on building a strong investment promotion agency by strengthening staff capacity through training and exposure, encouraging greater ownership of assigned tasks and strengthening accountability, governance, and compliance, to more sustainably deliver its mandate. The Management of NIPC considers strengthening the foundation as important as delivering on the Commission’s mandate.
The Executive Secretary/CEO, NIPC, Ms Yewande Sadiku made this known during her introductory remarks at the Commission’s quarterly media engagement, which took place last week.
Ms Sadiku disclosed that she would personally present at some of the media engagements while other members of the Management Team will present at others, to give a sense of the depth of capacity at NIPC.
The second media parley which had in attendance over 30 media houses, had the Directors of five departments – Strategic Communications, Investment Promotion, Investors Relations, States Coordination and Policy Advocacy presenting on their functions before responding to questions about doing business in Nigeria. The presentations made by Directors at the event will be shared in subsequent bulletins.
Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission was established by the NIPC Act Chapter N117 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004 to encourage, promote and coordinate investments in the Nigerian economy.
The quarterly media engagement, “NIPC MEETS THE PRESS”, is aimed at enlightening the public on NIPC’s mandate and activities.
The next “NIPC MEETS THE PRESS” will hold in the third quarter of the year.
