This Code, to be referred to as the Not-For-Profit Organisations Governance Code 2016, is the outcome of an additional directive given to the Steering Committee on the National Code of Corporate Governance on 29th November 2013 by the Honourable Minister of Trade and Investment. The remit of the committee is to extend corporate governance to Not-For-Profit Organisations (NFPOs) in Nigeria.
The need for extension was informed by the fact that corporate governance is currently very high on the economic agenda of many countries and it encompasses three sectors: the private, the public and not-for-profit. The not-for-profit sector is sometimes referred to as the Benevolent Sector, the Third Sector or the Civil Society Sector.
