ICAS report accuses ACCA of scramble for Africa
In the blistering heat of sub-Saharan West Africa, an unseen battle is raging for accountants’ hearts and minds - according to research commissioned by ICAS. Chibuike Uche, of the university of Nigeria, has authored a report arguing that ACCA’s international presence has stunted the ability of developing countries to train and develop their own accounting manpower. Rob Lewis reports.
The report looks at accounting practices in Nigeria, Ghana and Sierra Leone (where the average life expectancy is 41).
