The Instituted of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) has inaugurated Omolola Funmi Oke as its 17th executive chairman in Lagos.
Oke in her acceptance speech pledged to uphold the constitution of ICAN District Societies. While reiterating her support and loyalty to the President and Governing Council of ICAN, Oke promised to carry her executive members along to take part in the activities of the Institute in order to continue to showcase Lagos and District Society as the Premier District.
Furthermore, during her chairmanship year, the District Society’s “Catch Them Young Programme” will be strengthened so that the Society can reach out “to the young ones in the society with the aim of guiding them towards actualising their dreams of becoming chartered accountants” Oke said.
Climax of the investiture ceremony was the emotional transfer of power from the immediate past chairman, Lydia H. Ajayi, to the current chairman, Oke. In accordance with the constitution, Oke took the oath of office.
The event which took place at Golden Gate Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos, witnessed members of ICAN both in and outside Lagos, members of ICAN presidency, captains of industries among others, in attendance.
The newly inaugurated chairman administered the oath of office to the newly elected executive members. Together with the executive members, which comprise Constance Nwokejiobi (Vice Chairman), Adedeji Olumide (General Secretary), Alesta Wilcox (Treasurer), among others, Oke will pilot the affairs of ICAN, Lagos and District Society for the 2018/2019 chairmanship year.
Oke was elected, alongside other executive members, during the District’s Annual General Meeting held on 26th April, 2018. Oke, a graduate of Accountancy from the University of Lagos, is also an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria (CITN).
The society’s Members Annual Handbook was launched, during the investiture.
