Odita, 10 others conferred with doctoral fellowship

The joy knew no bounds as friends and well wishers rejoiced with 10 people who were recently conferred with Doctoral Fellowship by the Chartered Institute of Human Resources Management(CIHRM) in Lagos .

Among those who were celebrated was the Head, Defence and Security Affairs of The Guardian newspaper, and former President of the Crime Reporters Association of Nigeria (CRAN) Dr. Odita Sunday .

The ceremony, held in Ikeja, Lagos also featured the induction of new members into the Institute. Delivering a keynote address at the event, President of Women In Trades and Agriculture (AWITA), Dr. Ruth Agbo, urged human resources managers in private and public sectors to always carry their personnel along in planning career progression for them.
Agbo remarked that human resources management in contemporary times requires teamwork and inclusiveness in other to achieve organisational goals at minimal costs and higher degree of returns on investment.
She pointed out that, “our heroes in the past have committed a lot of errors, wrongly believing that they could plan a career without the person’s knowledge.”
She likened it to a situation where a square peg is urged to make a career in a round holed profession that has no correlation or bearing.
The AWITA boss, who was one of the recipients, also emphasised that teamwork is very important in every organisation so that they can achieve the same goal and objectives.
The Registrar of the Institute, Dr. Gbenga Ereta, explained the importance of the induction, stressing that the primary objective of the institute is development of manpower for effective management of human resources in every facet of life.
According to him, if you look at Nigeria, you will understand the heterogeneity of people and the need to know that we have imbalance of knowledge at every micro- level. We will contribute our quotas that will have multiplier effect in the wider society,” he stated.
He advised the recipients to always be conscious of their status in the society as the training given to them by the Institute has remolded their mindsets as they are now in leadership positions .
“You are now exemplary figures in the society. You have acquired the knowledge of leadership qualities. You should be able to guide your utrances anywhere you find yourselves. You are leaders and human managers and you have been told how to manage human beings and as human managers,you should be able to carry the people along in all that you do. You should also know how to relate with your wife and kids. You don’t talk anyhow to your wife , children, workers and the people you meet on your ways”
Speaking with Journalists, Odita ,said he was exposed to many things that would guide his behaviours, especially how to relate with colleagues in the office,” I have learnt a lot from the institute. The training has exposed me to many things that will guide me in my everyday’s dealings with people. It has taught me how to relate with my subordinates in the office. As you all know, I am a manager of people and the training has improved my skills on how to manage people. The leadership qualities I have learnt is too much. I have acquired more knowledge and expertise on how to deal with people. I enjoyed every thing about the training and capacity progemme.
” I want to advise my colleagues, especially in the media industry to always go for capacity building programmes . I am always interested in acquiring knowledge through training and retraining and that is what I wish my colleagues”.
