The Association of Forensic Accounting Researchers (AFAR) has re-appointed Prof. Muhammad Mainoma as Chairman of the association’s Governing Council after a successful three-year tenure.

Mainoma, who served as the pioneer Chairman of AFAR was re-appointed at the association’s board meeting held in Lagos recently.

A statement by AFAR Global President, Prof. Godwin Oyedokun, informed that Mainoma will be steering the affairs of the association for the next four years.

During this period, he is to assume responsibilities for leading the association to growth and efficiency, given his experience and profile in academics, corporate governance, public sector and international accounting.

Speaking on his re-appointment, Oyedokun said that Mainoma’s consideration followed his track record and excellent performance during his first tenure.

He added that the position of AFAR’s chairman is reserved for a professor of not less than 10 years, who must have held strong academic administrative positions like Vice-Chancellor and Dean, among others.

Mainoma has served in various capacities in both the public and private sectors. He was the immediate past Vice-Chancellor of Nasarawa State University, Keffi as well as the immediate past President of the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN).

He once served as Nasarawa State Commissioner for Finance. He is a member of many professional and academic bodies both in Nigeria and abroad including the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN) and the International Association of Accounting Educators and Researchers (IAAER), among others.

Commenting, Mainoma expressed appreciation on his re-appointment and assured of greater feats in the association under his leadership.

Also commenting, AFAR’s Vice President, Membership and Professional Development, Dr Titilayo Fowokan, said: “I don’t doubt in my mind that his re-appointment will be noted yet for developmental progress for the association as it happened during his first term in office.”
