The 56th President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), Dame Onome Joy Adewuyi, FCA, has implored members of the Warri & District Society to continue to live up to the Institute’s core principles of accuracy and integrity whether they are in paid employment or private practice.
Dame Adewuyi made the call last week at the ground breaking ceremony of the ICAN Resource Centre in Warri. She reminded members of the District that they should play key role in driving professional and student memberships at the grassroots.
She said that the Resource Centre, which is named after her, would house several cutting edge facilities for the use of ICAN members in Warri and environs, adding that it would enable members of the district to have a Centre for networking and cross fertilization of professional ideas.
“The Resource Centre would also provide the needed ambience for ICAN students in Warri and its environs as they prepare for the Institute’s examinations. ICAN students in this District would be able to access preparatory materials from the Centre’s library”, the president said.
The Resource Centre is jointly funded by the Institute and Dame Adewuyi. The 56th President implored members of the Warri district to engage public office holders in the state and local government to evolve a sustained relationship.
