Acting DG tasks NASS on CMD Act



The Acting Director-General of Centre for Management Development (CMD), Mr Bitrus Chinoko, has tasked National Assembly on the need to review the act establishing the organisation in line with current realities.

Chinoko made the call in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency on Thursday in Abuja.

“We are trying to get the National Assembly to review our act,” he said.

Chinoko said that the major function of CMD was regulatory.

“By regulatory, we mean every training to be conducted in both public and private sectors must have the approval and accreditation of CMD to standardise learning,” he said.

Chinoko said one of the reasons why CMD cannot enforce regulatory function was because the act has not empowered it to apply sanctions.

” The day we get the act reviewed, if any firm trains without CMD accredited we will apply sanctions it will bring sanity in the system,” he said.

He said that there were some dangers in allowing quacks into the profession.

” You cannot monitor performance and billons are wasted because we discovered that some portfolio trainers come with trainings that they cannot run, they come to negotiate with CMD to run the training on their behalf.

”We are not asking that CMD must be engaged in training but anyone going to conduct training in Nigeria must be an accredited trainer and the reason is to enable government have value for its money also to make sure that quacks are eliminated,” Chinoko said.

He said that CMD was talking to interested parties and has written to most ministries to ensure that only accredited management development trainers were patronised.

Chinoko also said that CMD have succeeded in communicating with some relevant law enforcement agencies not to patronise unaccredited trainers.

He said that it was for the good of the country and its economy.
