The Nigerian man acclaimed as the first African to be elected as Vice President of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), Kayode Fowode has stepped down from his office, following the expiration of his tenure.
In a broadcast message released by him yesterday, he said, “Today, I officially end my tenure as Vice President at IOSH.”
“It’s been an amazing and unimaginable year of selfless service and ambassadorial function on behalf of IOSH,” he recounted.
“I am delighted to see how much progress we have made as an Institution and more importantly seeing how much impact we have made locally since 2014 till date,” he furthered.
He recounted the journey of how IOSH West Africa evolved since its inception on February 7, 2015.
He reiterated that “No doubt all our efforts have also turned into an increased awareness of HSE in West Africa, professional development of HSE Practitioners and increased participation in HSE initiatives. We have also seen more members from Africa take more roles in IOSH both locally and internationally”.
