The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) has announced plans to commence forensic accounting training for police officers in the country.

The ICAN’s President, Malam Tijani Musa, who disclosed this yesterday during the institute’s 2023 Faculties Induction Ceremony, said the training would further support the effective discharge of the officers’ public duties and responsibilities, as well as deepen ICAN’s role in national development, especially in financial fraud detection and prosecution.

“I am equally pleased to inform you that the Institute signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Nigerian Police Academy to commence forensic accounting training for their cadets, mid-level managers and executives effective from April 2023,” he said.

Musa enjoined the inductees to strive for excellence and constantly look for ways to improve service delivery to their clients in today’s fast-paced world.


“This would not only endear you to your clients and facilitate subsequent job offers but will also positively reflect on the Institute. I admonish you to develop strong work ethics that will set you apart from your competitors. Remember, the road to success is not always easy, but with hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude, you can achieve the seemingly impossible,” he said.

He said that ICAN faculties were created over two decades ago to serve as a technical support system for members’ professional needs by building core competencies in seven areas of specialization.

He stressed that the faculties’ broad objectives were to identify members’ unique needs, provide timely and pertinent professional information, train and certify members’ specialist skills.
