The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria says it will continue to enhance capacity building and professionalism by fostering relationship with relevant partners and stakeholders.
The President, ICAN, Mr. Titus Soetan, said this during a visit to the Lagos Mainland and District Society of the institute in Lagos on Friday.
Soetan, who also made a courtesy visit to Grace Polytechnic and MRS Oil Nigeria Plc, said the institute would continue to expand its reach across the country.
During his visit to Grace Polytechnic, the ICAN president said the institute was partnering the tertiary institution for the training of accountants.
He said, “ICAN was established in 1965 to determine the standard of knowledge that will be required for those that want to be chartered accountants in Nigeria. Therefore, Grace Polytechnic needs to be accredited by ICAN to enable her Higher National Diploma graduates to qualify for subject exemption.
In his reaction, the Rector, Grace Polytechnic Dr. Adeosun Olayiwola, expressed the belief that the visit by ICAN team would foster a win-win relationship between the institute and the institution.
The Managing Director, MRS Oil Nigeria Plc, Mr. Andrew Gbodume, recalled that the organisation had maintained a good relationship with ICAN since the years of Texaco Oil.
He said, “We have recruited qualified accountants into the company and currently we have a total of 16 chartered accountants and some of them are fellows of the institute.”
