War of professionals in Nigeria deepens as APBN warns NASS against establishing CIFIAN

The Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria (APBN) has depicted the move by the National Assembly to build up the Chartered Institute of Forensic and Investigative Auditors of Nigeria (CIFS) as suspicious and an infringement of the privileges of experts in the nation.

It would be reviewed that the Institute Chartered Accountant of Nigeria (ICAN) kicked against government officials’ thought of the bill. However, CIFS terminated back and blamed ICAN for intending to abandon the foundation of the establishment.

Protem President of CIFIAN, Dr. Victoria Enape, portrayed ICAN’s nonstop endeavors to baffle the bill as a demonstration of “parochial intrigue.”

On Friday, while responding to the second and third readings at the House of Representatives on May 21, APBN President and Chairman of Board and Council, Engr. (Boss) Olumuyiwa Alade Ajibola expressed that the earnestness with which the bill was being pushed in the House, raised much doubt.

Ajibola, in an announcement, said “Whenever passed, the bill will debilitate the capacity of any certified master who is all around grounded with information and expert instruments to take an interest in Forensic and Investigative issues, in spite of the way that the forces to do as such have a place with the specific calling.”

He cautioned that the foundation would at best make perplexity and confound any authentic Investigative exertion.

“The premise of this additional collective desperation in preparing this bill is not suspicious. Every expert body is reminded to take note of that the section will nor be to its most significant advantage nor in that of the overall population.

“Segments 9 and 10 of this bill demonstrate that there is no recognizable and perceived University learning educational programs for the procurement of the information being proposed to be product housed in this establishment.

“Along these lines, it can just outcome in uncalled for usurpation of the privileges of the current callings,” the APBN supervisor expressed. While considering individuals from the relationship to opposing the ‘false’ and ‘unmerited’ establishment, Ajibola contended that the body being made would possibly infringe on the privileges of existing able institutions when gone into law.
