ANAN backs FG on cor­rup­tion fight, whis­tle blow­ing

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

The As­so­ci­a­tion of Na­tional Ac­coun­tants of Nige­ria (ANAN) on Tues­day pledged its com­mit­ment in sup­port­ing the war on cor­rup­tion and whis­tle blow­ing against any erring pub­lic ser­vant in the coun­try.

The as­so­ci­a­tion dis­closed this at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the 4th ses­sion of its Manda­tory Con­tin­u­ing Pro­fes­sional De­vel­op­ment (MCPD) pro­gramme and ori­en­ta­tion of new mem­bers in Kaduna.

Speak­ing to jour­nal­ists shortly af­ter the event, Na­tional Pres­i­dent and the Chair­man of ANAN, Al­haji Shehu Us­man Ladan, said the as­so­ci­a­tion has been in the fore­front of whis­tle blow­ing, long be­fore the Fed­eral Govern­ment’s intervention and will con­tinue to sup­port the govern­ment in its cam­paign for zero tol­er­ance on cor­rup­tion.

Say­ing that the MCPD will aid in up­dat­ing ac­coun­tants with re­cent prac­tices across the world, Ladan also said the as­so­ci­a­tion has en­tered into a part­ner­ship agree­ment with the In­de­pen­dent Cor­rupt Prac­tices and other Re­lated Of­fences Com­mis­sion to ex­pose any pub­lic ser­vice theft.

“The essence of this gath­er­ing is to re­train our mem­bers on the cur­rent hap­pen­ings in the ac­count­ing world so that you will re­main rel­e­vant, knowl­edge­able and add value to your work­ing place and the na­tion by ex­ten­sion.

“This is be­cause things are chang­ing and if you are not cur­rent, you will be­come ob­so­lete in your work-place.

“ANAN as an or­ga­ni­za­tion, has what is called ethics and stan­dard com­mit­tee, where erring mem­bers are tried and if they are found want­ing, they will be sanc­tioned ac­cord­ing to the law.
