The newly inaugurated 11th Chairman of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, Ikorodu District Society, Tajudeen Amodu, has urged youths to embrace the accounting profession.

Amodu said that during his investiture and the inauguration of the 2024/2025 executive members recently in Lagos.

He said that to transform the district, he would host webinars and member-friendly programmes.

He also highlighted the importance of engaging youth, encouraging them to pursue ICAN’s Accounting Technician Scheme, especially for those who cannot immediately enter university.

“This initiative aims to ensure that young people are not left out and can start a career, becoming chartered accountants in 2-3 years. These efforts will provide valuable information to the community for collective betterment.

“Our focus is to ensure an inclusive regime where everyone has the opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of the district.

We aim to change the dynamics in Ikorodu by bringing all professionals together for an annual fitness walk, enhancing community impact and bonding among professional bodies,” he added.

The immediate past chairman of ICAN Ikorodu District Society, Lateef Awojobi, stated that district projects were ongoing, and every new leader had been building on their predecessor’s work.

“They aim to improve on past efforts and gather member feedback to bridge communication gaps and enhance the ICAN brand,” Awojobi said.

The General Secretary of the district, Ayinde Samuel, mentioned that the ICAN district society had firmly established itself as a household name in the accounting profession.

For him, the true reward for commendable work is the opportunity to accomplish even more.

He advised the incoming district chairman to foster a collaborative and team-oriented approach.

According to Samuel, while innovation and creativity are important, the collective efforts of the executive committee and general members are essential for turning ideas into reality.

He reminded the chairman that the success of any plan depends on teamwork and support from the entire district society.
