The Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) has been charged by the Accountant General of the Federation (AGF), Ahmed Idris, to come up with ideas and activities that will help solidify the accomplishments of the government’s financial reform projects.
When the leadership of the Abuja chapter of ANAN paid him a courtesy call in Abuja, the Accountant General of the Federation said that as a professional body, ANAN should use its experience to guarantee that the financial reforms initiatives continue to succeed.
“ANAN has a one-of-a-kind role to play in promoting financial reform efforts. You are opinion shapers, and you may express your own thoughts and directions on these policies, which the government will embrace, especially as a professional association,” he remarked.
Idris called on the association to undertake public enlightenment to make public finance practitioners abreast of the reforms and also undertake capacity building on the reform initiatives to further equip government officials handling these reforms.
The Accountant General of the Federation congratulated the executive of ANAN, Abuja chapter on their success at the elections and reminded them of the obligation to promote the professionalism of the accounting profession.
In his speech, the chairman of ANAN, Abuja chapter, Wahab Omoniyi, appreciated the Accountant General of the Federation for his support for the association and briefed him on the activities of the association.
