A former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has commended the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria for attaining the full membership of the International Federation of Accountants.

Obasanjo made the remarks while receiving the President of ANAN, Alhaji Sakiruden Labode and some council members at his Hilltop residence in Abeokuta on Monday.


He described the association as very committed to the accountancy profession.

Obasanjo said the association was also living up to its responsibility of setting standards in the profession.

He commended the efforts of Labode in leading the association to attaining the IFAC membership.

The former president said this was an affirmation of approval of ANAN as a professional body by the government.

Labode, in his response, said the association would continuously be dedicated to the quest for quality service delivery by professional accountants in the country.

In another development, ANAN has donated an accountancy research centre, to the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.

A statement by ANAN quoted the Vice-Chancellor, FUNAAB, Prof. Olusola Oyewole, as describing the research centre as the first of its kind in FUNAAB College of Management Sciences.

He said the development was a significant stride in accountancy knowledge and development.

Oyewole urged other multi-national organisations to emulate ANAN.

Labode said the inauguration of the centre was in line with the association’s goal of advancing the science of accountancy through skill and knowledge.

He said the research centre would expand the frontiers of professional accountancy in the country and the world.

According to the statement, ANAN has also organised a long service award for 17 of its staff members who served between 11 and 22 years.

Labode commended the staff, saying that the award was the best way of appreciating the staff for their meritorious service so that they could deliver their best.
