The prayers of stakeholders of Chartered Institute of Professional Printers of Nigeria under the aegis of Change Group was granted as the Honorable Justice Buba of the Federal High Court Ikoyi, Lagos approved the appointment of a seven member committee with the sole aim of conducting a free and fair election for new council members as required by the Act establishing CIPPON.
The caretaker committee members are: Mr Lai Bankole the MD/CEO Lapat who is the committees chairman, Mr Ike Okorafor – the Managing Director Premium Pack Limited as the committee’s secretary; Mr Fashanu Babs a committee member, other members of the committee are Alhaji Yahaya Amfani – the chairman/CEO of Yaliam Press, Princess Layo Okeowo, Mr Dele Okanlawon and Mr. Femi Jolaolu.
According to information released by the group, the caretaker committee members are people of noble character and no strangers to CIPPON as majority of them were appointed by the former council to serve previously in one committee or the other and we have no doubt that they will deliver.
“We hope the chairman of the committee members has started rallying his team and are already planning on how to deliver a new leadership to the institute. We will beam their searchlight on them to collectively hold them to account in ensuring that they conduct a free and fair election to get capable hands that will champion the course of the institute”.
