Idris encourages professionals on useful research

06 May 2016, 21:36

Abuja – The Accountant-General, Ahmed Idris, has called on local professional bodies to produce the empirical solutions to the numerous problems the country is facing.

Speaking at Treasury House where he received members of the Abuja District of the Institute of chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), he said these solutions could be attained through research.

Idris said time had come for professional bodies in Nigeria to go beyond their normal routine programmes  and focus more on developing feasible solutions that would help the government address the prevailing problems.

“These problems have become a clog in the wheel of the country’s development,” said Idris.

“As professionals, government will feel your impact more when you are involved in developing strategies that will address the problems bedeviling the society.”

He assured them the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation was open to new ideas to improve the reforms currently implemented by Government to ensure more transparency and accountability in the management of the nation’s treasury.

Chairwoman of the Abuja District ICAN, Ifeoma Okpo, the society is impressed with the successes so far recorded by the Accountant-General
since his appointment last year.
