FRCN Seeks Partnership with EFCC

Executive Secretary of the Council, Daniel Asapokhai, made made this known when he led a team of management staff on a visit to the Abuja headquarters of the anti-graft agency.
The FRCN, according to him, was established to “protect investors and other stakeholders’ interest, ensure good corporate governance practices in the public and private sectors of the Nigerian economy, and to promote the highest standards among auditors and other professionals engaged in the financial reporting process.”
He noted that for the Council to be able to effectively discharge its mandate, it needed to partner with the EFCC, which necessitated the reason for visiting the Commission.
While acknowledging the tremendous work done by the anti-graft agency, Asapokhai said, “We commend your resolute commitment in revamping the fight against corruption, and we are here to seek collaboration with you.”
Asapokhai also urged the two organizations to sign a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at fostering engagements between them.
The Acting EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, who was represented by the Commission’s Secretary, Emmanuel Adegboyega Aremo, assured the Council of its readiness to collaborate with the FRCN, and urged the Council to further collaborate with the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering, SCUML, “as they are the ones that deal with the registration of professional bodies”.
On the visit were: Sanusi Umar, Director, Human Capital Management; Iheanyi Anyahara, Director, Strategy and Policy; Abubakar Ibrahim, Director Finance and Admin; Titus Osare, Director, Inspections and Monitoring, and Comfort Osondu, Manager, Legal Unit.
