Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita has urged the Society of Women Accountants of Nigeria, SWAN, on the need for increased capacity development of its members.
According to a statement signed by the information officer, Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, Kauthar Ibrahim Gwarzo, Oyo-Ita made the call recently when SWAN members paid her a courtesy visit in her office in Abuja.
She said that training of accountants should be of priority to SWAN, especially in this era of change, as doing so would help drive government’s anti-corruption policy.
