The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) has been applauded by the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) Limited for continuously enhancing its ethical standards and technical competencies in the interest of the capital market and the Nigerian economy as a whole.

The chief executive officer of the NGX, Mr Temi Popoola, while speaking at a closing gong ceremony hosted on Monday in honour of Mrs Comfort Olu Eyitayo, whose tenure ended yesterday as the president of ICAN, disclosed the organisation has made it a habit to always produce world-class chartered accountants, who have been very useful in different fields of life.

Yesterday’s event was held to commemorate the completion of Mrs Eyitayo’s tenure as the 57th president of ICAN and the new leader, Mr Tijjani Musa Isa, takes charge from today.

At the programme, Mr Popoola highlighted the milestone advances of the Institute achieved under the outgone president, especially by rebranding the organisation to reflect the new market dynamics.

“On behalf of the board and management of Nigerian Exchange Limited, I would like to commend Mrs Eyitayo for all your achievements as the President of ICAN.

“The management of the exchange is particularly pleased to host Mrs Eyitayo who, during her tenure, made several impressive achievements including the rebranding of the institute with the change of its identity to reflect the new market dynamics and collaboration with the Bank of Industry (BOI) in establishing the ICAN-BOI Innovation Plus Hub among other landmark achievements.

“At NGX Group of Companies, we take pride in the quality of people we employ and continue to encourage continuous professional development. We are privileged to have 19 chartered accountants who work across the NGX Group of Companies.

“We remain committed in our resolve to continuously support our employees with the necessary training and career development programs to help them deliver value for the Nigerian economy through their daily activities,” Mr Popoola said.

In her remarks, Mrs Eyitayo thanked the bourse for the honour of “a lifetime opportunity to execute the closing gong ceremony at the exchange.”

“It is indeed very symbolic as this event coincides with my last day in office as the 57th president of the Institute. On behalf of over 57 thousand members of our great Institute, I appreciate this landmark gesture of the exchange. I wish you more resounding success in years to come,” she added.
