The 58th President, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), Mallam Tijjani Musa Isa, has said that the institute consciously follows the principle of diversity and inclusion as it treasures the unique insight that women bring into decision-making.

He said this at a presidential luncheon organised for him by the Society of Women Accountants of Nigeria (SWAN) recently in Ikoyi, Lagos.

According to him, the association was reaping the benefits of the vast pool of talents, energy and commitment that women bring to the table in their programmes.

“Over four decades, this reputable association has constantly supported female accountants and encouraged young girls at tertiary institutions to join our noble profession.

“SWAN has positively impacted female Chartered Accountants and the accounting profession through its many laudable projects. The association’s grooming of budding female accountants and provision of career direction and guidance is both impressive and commendable.

“There is no denying the invaluable contribution of SWAN members to the achievement of the Institute’s mandate, either through their participation as members of the Governing Council, Council Committees or staff of the Institute. It is however important to state that promoting sustainable growth and development across economies will significantly advance the well-being of women.

Hence, the Institute’s 52nd Annual Accountants’ Conference theme, ‘Nigeria: Adopting Sustainability for Economic Prosperity, will further discussion on Accountants’ roles in sustainability.

The Conference is scheduled to hold between October 10 – 14, 2022 in Abuja with the goal of providing practical solutions that would ensure economic prosperity as well as a viable planet, leaving no woman or girl behind.

In appreciation, the National Chairman, SWAN, Mrs. Nwamara Catherine Nnaji, described Isa as a quiet, humble and easy-going, yet understanding person.

“He has listening ears and is always willing to assist. Most of the activities carried out by SWAN to project the image of ICAN are tasking and we are optimistic and appreciative, our own Mallam Tijanni Musa Isa, will play his part in ensuring SWAN continue to ‘swim’.”
