The South West Vice Chairman of the National Institute of Management (NIM) Alhaji Ebun Atinuke has identified change of orientation and mind set by all Nigerians as the only solution to the challenge of corruption facing Nigeria as a nation.
Atinuke, who doubles as the Ogun State branch Chairman of the Institute said this on Wednesday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital while addressing newsmen.

He commended Bisiriyu for serving two Ogun State governors meritoriously, adding that he has been a very good ambassador of the NIM in the State, and by extension Nigeria.
He added that the award would be conferred on the Head of Service at the grandfinale of a week-long annual management lecture billed for 5th of December in Abeokuta.
The lecture tagged “Canvassing for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Towards Economic Development : Ogun State in view” would be delivered by Engr. Cornelius Sogunle.
