Dear Esteemed Member,

On Thursday, 6th August 2020, IoD Nigeria launched the revised Code of Ethics for Members and staff in a grand ceremony witnessed by the cream of Nigeria’s private and public sectors. With this launch, IoD Nigeria reaffirmed its commitment to maintaining its position as the leading professional body for Directors in Nigeria while ensuring that its members and staffs adhere strictly to the principles of Good Ethics and Governance in their endeavours

One of the key mandates of the Institute of Directors Nigeria is to sustain standards, values, ethics, best traditions and continuously improve the capacities of Directors to fulfil their roles of delivering value to all stakeholders. Our commitment to high ethical standards has continued to drive our role in promoting Corporate Governance and Good Business Ethics in Nigeria. We have kept faith by establishing sets of rules, regulations and expectations, which were embedded in our ethical codes for members since the inception of the Institute.

The IoD Nigeria Code of Ethics will standardise the practice of sound ethical values and principles among Members and staff of IoD Nigeria and induce voluntary compliance with the highest ethical standards. Furthermore, the Code of Ethics will better position the Institute to monitor the conduct of its members and employees. It is also the aspiration of the Institute that the IoD Code of Ethics will serve as a guide for other stakeholders on Ethics.

It is therefore my pleasure to share with you the IoD Code of Ethics 2020.
