He urged them to note the regulation and bye-laws, long-range plans and all significant deviation from such plans, the power to direct the parastatals to prepare accounts and set standards and approval of capital and operation budget for parastatals, adding that only the President through the minister had the final power. He also urged them to maintain regular communication with government appointees to keep them abreast of government policies affecting their parastatals and rendition of annual audited accounted which should be submitted within six months of the end of their financial year.
