Our members are competent – ICAN

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria has said that its members across Nigeria and beyond would never be caught in any act of financial indiscipline, or any form of malfeasance in every sphere of their operations.

The 59th President of ICAN, Dr Innocent Okwuosa, made this assertion during the annual dinner and awards ceremony organised by the Ikorodu chapter of ICAN Ikorodu.

Owkuosa, who was represented at the event by the Coordinator of ICAN, Ikorodu District, Mr Mbang Esu, affirmed that its members have been kept on watch, and the governing council of the institute would not hesitate to raise the harmer on any member found wanting in their discharge of professional responsibilities and obligations.

He charged its members to uphold the tenets of accountability and responsibilities and avoid unethical behaviours and financial rascality.

“Have you heard that any ICAN member was found in any unwholesome act, especially in the public sector? We abide by the principles and values of professionalism, and our motto is Accuracy and Integrity, so we are all aware, that we dare not be mentioned in any act of financial irresponsibility, indiscipline, imprudence, or rascality” he stated.

Speaking on the awards, the ICAN Treasurer, Oluwatobi Abiola, said the awards were given to distinguish persons to inspire them to make more impacts on the economy.

“If it is not ICAN, it can never be ICAN. I urged the government across levels to engage Chartered accountants in appointments of sensitive financial portfolios to avoid stories that touch the heart. We are rare breeds,” he said.

Meanwhile, a female fellow of the Institute, Mrs Hassana Silas, promised that the Society of Women Accountants of Nigeria would continue to push forward to ensure that more women were brought on board.

 “Potential and prospective female accounting students should not give up; we have a place of relevance in the accounting world. Women are making waves in the accounting world, and there is still enough room for more women to come in and soar in this noble profession,” she added.
