The Sparkle Writer’s Hub is a hub for all writers and everyone who has a desire to master the art of writing. Their believe is that everyone can learn how to write and they are on a mission to help aspiring writers achieve their writing goals. They recently had a chat with Uade Ahimie.
In the interview, he talked about the benefits that accrue to organizations that can clearly articulate their objectives in respect to Corporate Law, Risk Management, Accounting and Finance, Project and Governance Strategy and Internal Control.
Uade has over 27 years of cognate experience spanning various sectors of the economy which include Banking, Oil and Gas, Energy and Consulting. His competencies cuts across Accounting and Finance, Internal Control and Audit, Business Process Re-engineering and Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Consulting. He recently retired as the General Manager, Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Compliance at Sahara Group, an Energy conglomerate based in Nigeria with operations across four continents – Europe, Africa, Asia and America.
Uade’s experience has seen him work with teams in well-established international institutions such as the World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) – where he led a team in delivering initiatives towards rebuilding Trust and Integrity in Businesses as well as being a key note speaker at the PACI Vanguard Council (The highest ruling body of PACI) meeting in Washington DC, USA,
He has also worked with teams from United Nation’s Development Funds – Sustainable Development Goals Fund (SDGF’s) where he was the team lead for Sahara Group in the Food Africa Project, a partnership between the SDG, Sahara Group and Kaduna State Government – a project aimed at providing employment, eradicating poverty and empowering people (with an emphasis on gender equality and women empowerment). The project would also see to the reduction in food wastage, improving and increasing food production sustainability in Kaduna State.
Uade was greatly involved in developing, implementing and managing the set-up of Sahara Group’s Power assets (Ikeja Electric, Egbin Power PLC and First Independent Power Limited), where he was responsible for the management of developing and publishing the first ever Sustainability Report in the history of the Nigerian Power Sector, for Ikeja Electric and Egbin Power Plc for the 2015 financial year.
He believes that the most important message in his book, CRAPI-FART is the idea that anyone can build, maintain and manage an ethical and sustainable business once they understand the fact that for a business to start, grow and mature, one must harness the synergies of these individual parts of CRAPI to create sustainable footprint and build long-lasting legacies.
In conjunction with BAGUS, Uade Ahimie will be having a book reading at the Muson Centre on the 27th of July, 2019. Through the book reading, he hopes that more Nigerians will apply sustainable practices and due diligence in their various businesses and that more people will understand the intrinsic value of having a good Corporate Governance system.
