The Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) is to establish the South-South region of the College of Accounting in Calabar, the Cross River State capital.
President of the association, Anthony Chukwuemeka Nzom, disclosed this when he led a delegation of its national leadership to pay a courtesy call on Governor Ben Ayade at the EXCO Chambers in Calabar.
A visibly happy Prof. Ayade promptly gave his blessing to the plan. He laid emphasis on the importance of the institution to the nation at large, challenging ANAN to attack corruption and condemn it in its entirety by making sure that accountants are people with ethics, knowledge and integrity.
In his speech, the President of ANAN said that the association was established in 1979 and is recognised as the number two professional accounting body in Africa by the Pan-African Federation of Accountants, which is the continent’s body for professional accountants.
Mr. Nzom told the Governor that the establishment of the institution in the state became imperative following its serenity and less congestion which is conducive for learning without external distractions.
He on behalf of ANAN sued for the cooperation of the Ayade-led government towards the successful establishment of the institution, in order to afford its intending students the opportunity to access education within the South-South region.
