All things being equal, the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) will, on Thursday, the 30th of October, 2014 confer on NICO’s Director of Finance and Accounts, Mr. Godson Igbo Ordu (CNA) with the prestigious Fellowship of professional accounting regulatory body.

This award was communicated to the Accountant through a letter, dated 1st July, 2014, which read in part: “We are pleased to inform you that the Governing Council of the Association, at its 123rd meeting held on 21st June, 2014 in Lagos approved your nomination for the conferment on you of the prestigious FELLOWSHIP of ANAN…. Please, accept our congratulations.”

The Award Ceremony, which holds at the Association’s Annual Conference for 27th-30th October, 2014 at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, FCT, would be a great honour for the Institute to have one of its own conferred with such a prestigious award for outstanding performance in the Association and in the Accounting profession in general.

NICO, on its part, has concluded all necessary arrangements to make the award ceremony a huge success, as it (the award by ANAN) would be one among the series of awards conferred on the Certified Accountant.

It would be recalled that on the 17th of May, 2014, Mr. Godson Ordu was conferred with the Award of Honourary Doctorate Degree of Philosophy in Public Administration (Honoris Causa) in Philadelphia, United State of America (USA) and award of Fellow Chartered System Accountant for his previous professional development programme in USA.
