GOVERNOR Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has sought the assistance of members of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN, and similar professional organizations in his administration’s efforts towards entrenching fiscal discipline and transparency in the management of public funds.

Ugwuanyi said that such administrative principles of accountability and transparency have helped his administration to reduce wastages and leakages in the finance of the state, adding that the collaboration will not only “encourage greater public participation in both the making and implementation of government policies” but will also strengthen the people’s trust in government.

The governor, who spoke at the 2018 Eastern Zonal Accountants Conference of the ICAN, held in Enugu on Tuesday, described the Institute as a professional body that has contributed immensely to the development of the nation’s financial sector as well as the effective implementation of fiscal policies.

Ugwuanyi, who was represented by his deputy, Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo, emphasized the importance of the conference towards the “adoption of measures that would ensure rapid economic growth and expansion for the nation, especially in this period of mounting fiscal challenges.”
