Speaking on the election, the newly-elected National Coordinator, Fowode said, “The election has come and gone but the good thing is that we are all winners irrespective of the outcome. For all nominees, we all won.
“We must now support each other and also know that the success of the exco depends on followers as well.
“We humbly seek your support. And please irrespective of the challenges, differences and expectations ahead, we must always put our house in order and address issues internally so that we don’t project a wrong image of IOSH
“The excos should be the first point of contact for any matters relating to the informal group and not our international body (IOSH-UK)”.
Safety Record Newspaper gathered that 32 members of the group were accredited as voters for the elections and 62 persons attended the group meeting.
