About The Conference

The primal role of audit has been to protect the truth in a manner that ensures that investors, the markets, and society are not misled into trusting the untrustworthy. In the centuries of fulfilling that role, audit has nurtured nation building and civilizations. This hollowed role of audit has been reproached by the unabating spate of financial scandals and audit failures resulting in loss of trust in audit and the desecration of the audit franchise with society.  Robust reforms of rules, practices, and technologies in the last two decades have failed to halt the egregious audit failures that the market is witnessing.

WHAT MUST BE DONE NOW? Experts and philosophers argue that “since abstract accounting does not count and abstract auditing does not audit, therefore, what is required now is that the professionals who embody the affordances of auditing, those who do the counting and auditing, must change too. This transformative webinar will expose the contours of the challenge.

Attend and be part of the initiative to restore trust in audit and save the future of our civilization.

Mandatory for all external and internal auditors in Nigeria.
