The Institute has declared its readiness to collaborate with Nile University of Nigeria on quality education, especially accounting studies in the Institution.
This was disclosed in Lagos on August 26 by the President of the Institute, Dame Onome Joy Adewuyi during a virtual courtesy call on ICAN by the Institution.
Adewuyi commended the giant strides recorded by the University established eleven years ago. According to her, the University must have put in a lot of human capital and material resources in place to have achieved so much within the short period.
She also commended the University’s gender bias in favour of female students in the Institution, adding that as weaker sex, certain preferences should be allotted to them as a way of encouragement.
She however invited the University to consider signing up for the Institute’s Mutual Cooperation Agreement with Tertiary Institutions (MCATI) to enable its Students to enjoin further exemptions in the Institute’s Examinations.
According to her, graduates of Institutions under the MCATI agreement enjoy exemptions in 10 out of the 15 subjects of the Professional Examination. This entails the University adopting the Institute’s syllabus wholly along with that prescribed by the Nigerian Universities Commission.
Earlier, the Vice Chancellor of Nile University, Professor Usman Haras disclosed that the university seeks to establish social partnership with ICAN through the provision of opportunity for its staff to run post graduate programmes at the university and special discount for children of ICAN members among others.
He concluded that the Institution will embrace the MCATI programme to enhance the future of its students.
