About 102 senior military officers have been inducted as qualified members by the Nigerian Institute of Management, The Punch reports.
The induction ceremony was held at the National Defence College in Abuja during the executive training for membership and upgrade programme for selected officers.
Legit.ng gathered that the president and chairman of council, NIM, Prof. Olukunle Iyanda, charged the military personnel to abide by the codes of the institute and shun acts of corruption.
Iyanda speaking at the event, said: “About 102 senior officers of the armed forces were inducted and we hope that our code of conduct will permeate all their actions, which is why we emphasised the need for them to be above board and do things in the right way for the good and betterment of our dear country.
"When people do anything that compromises the objectives and aspirations of the country, they should be punished and punished timely. All these extended trials, when people are standing trial for five or six years, do not actually have impact.
“When you have people tried over so many years, and in some of those cases, you see the trials on the pages of newspapers and you do not see people actually go to jail or pay for their violations, it does not have any effect and does not serve as a check to the others. You perpetuate the practice that is unwholesome for the country.”
