ANAN backs FG on corruption fight, whistle blowing
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.
