Nigerian Code of Corporate Governance (NCCG) 2018 seeks to promote adherence to global corporate governance best practice in Nigeria. The Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRC) and Institute of Directors (IOD) have identified the need for companies that were significantly impacted by the Covid 19 pandemic and its aftermath to reinvent their Board of Directors and other corporate governance structures, in order to fully cope with the consequences of multidimensional impact of the pandemic and other crisis that may be imminent. In order to achieve this, companies and their Boards have to be ready for the changes that corporate governance best practice requires, despite competing scarce resource in these uncertain times.


FRC and IOD accordingly brings Directors, Senior Executives, and other aspiring corporate leaders this programme themed “Nigerian Code of Corporate Governance 2018: Compliance in Uncertain Times”. The Programme will assist the Board of Directors, Top Management, Company Secretaries, Chief Internal Auditors, and other C-Suite Executives  to appreciate the need to reinvent the Board by setting the right priorities during  crisis, appreciate the role of stakeholder activism, undertake board evolution through new injection of diverse talent, achieve greater team work and make effective and efficient use of experts within companies. Participants will critically review the practical implications of the Code in achieving the foregoing objectives and consider case studies.
