The Executive Secretary of the National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Dr. Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma, has highlighted once again the importance of cultural training for workers when he stated that any NICO staff who fails to complete the Institute’s regular programmes in Cultural Administration will not be promoted.
The Executive Secretary gave this flyer during the meeting of the Examination Committee of the Institute held on Tuesday February 10, 2015 in NICO, Lagos to consider the last Semester Examination result of students of NICO Training School.

Therefore, he continued, any NICO student who fails to sit for an examination, defend assigned research project, or abstain from field work must return the next academic session to do so as the Institute has set academic standards that cannot be compromised.
