Written by Webmaster Posted in About Nico

NICO is essentially made up of five (5) departments namely: Administration & Human Resources, Finance & Accounts, Orientation & Cultural Affairs, Research & Documentation, and Training School. Each of these departments is headed by a Director, who reports directly to the Executive Secretary/Chief Executive Officer.

Similarly, there are units, such as Corporate Affairs, Legal, Protocol, Budget, and Procurement uUnits, which are directly under the Office of the Executive Secretary. Each is headed by an Assistant Director or its equivalent.

The Institute has also opened offices in all the six (6) geo-political zones in the country, in addition to the Lagos Liaison Office, which is presently hosting the Training School.

Furthermore, State Offices are being opened in Enugu, Ibadan, Minna, and Gombe, to effectively carry the Institute's programmes and activities to the grassroots.

Thus, the management structure of the Institute is as follows:
