Professional bodies urged to form greater synergy for sustainable growth


Professional bodies in Delta State have been urged to form greater synergy in their collective efforts to entrench professionalism and drive sustainable growth and development in the state.

The charge was given by Engineer Terry Mene, the guest speaker at the 8th Annual General Assembly of the Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria APBN, Delta State Chapter.

Speaking on the topic: “Effective Inter-professional Relationship; A Panacea for Societal Development”, Engineer Terry Mene, who was represented by Dr. Sony Ali, said it was pertinent for professionals to know that no profession exist in isolation, adding that they are interrelated and need each other.

Noting that the sooner they realize the importance of team work, the better it would be for professional bodies in the state.

He emphasized the need for proper collaboration, adding that an understanding of the process of effective communication as well as mutual respect would help to achieve the above goal.

On his part, the Delta State Chairman of APBN, Paul Aporowho, said that the association was ready and committed to ensuring that professionalism is greatly entrenched in the state.

He revealed that they have been working very hard to achieve their goals, especially in trying to close the gap between practical knowledge and theory amongst under graduates through Collaborative and Synergic efforts with some higher institutions in the State including the Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun, FUPRE.

Paul Aporowho, commended member bodies of the association in the State for their commitments and supports, adding that it was not yet time to go to bed, but that more needed to be done to take the Association to the zenith of its vision and change the narrative in Delta state.

In his remarks shortly after presenting his report, the State Secretary of AFBN, Rev. Lewis Afolabi, lamented the fact that quacks are gradually taking the jobs of professionals and having a field day in the state.

He urged the state government not to use professional jobs and assignment as tools for political patronage and reward for party members as well as loyalists, who may not be qualified, thus, making a mess of professionalism and the strive for sustainable growth and development in the state.

The 8th Assembly of APBN Delta State Chapter with sixteen member associations resolved on some level of financial Commitment for the welfare of members.
