One of the country’s tertiary institutions that are offering various courses which many young people are pursuing, the Institute of Advanced Management and Technology (IAMTECH) recently was the proud recipient of a prestigious award from the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) for effectively complying with the NASSIT Act No.5 of 2001 in the 2019 Financial Year.

Presenting the award to IAMTECH, the Director of Public Affairs and Customer Service, Osman F. Kamara commended  IAMTECH for receiving such an award from his institution, saying it  shows that they are among the most compliant institutions in the country.

He further praised the Administration of the institution for what he describes as its commitment to pay NASSIT contributions for its staff also encouraging them to continue to do so also underscoring how such will help motivate the institution’s workforce. He, on behalf, of the Director General of NASSIT, presented the prestigious award to IAMTECH for fully honouring their NASSIT obligations for the financial year 2019.

Receiving the award on behalf of IAMTECH, the Head of Communications, Mr. Abdul Karim Kamara, stated that he feels very humble for receiving such an auspicious award. In an elated mood he stated “to us as an institution, we see this award as one won out of merit; we are grateful to God for everything we have gone through as an institution”.

He said they are dedicating the award to God Almighty, the Proprietor Prof. Dr. Paul Kamara and wife Dr. Mrs. Abie Paula Kamara, the Chief Executive Officer Prof. Roseline E. Uyanga, the entire Management and Staff of IAMTECH including the committed students both current and past.

He maintained that it was not a surprise to them to be awarded by no less an institution than NASSIT justifying how they have been paying their employees’ NASSIT obligations every month and on time giving them an edge over other institutions in the same category. He revealed that as an institution they have been with NASSIT since its inception and they are going to ensure that they meet all tax obligations set forth by Government because IAMTECH always puts country first.

He used the forum as an opportunity to advise sister institutions to always honour their NASSIT obligations as by doing so they will be helping in the preparation of a better future for their employees and by extension, contributing to the country’s revenue mobilization.
