Evaluation of Professional Accountancy Education and Training in Nigeria

Dr. Augustine Oke Okolie, Prof. Famous O. I. Izedonmi

Abstract

This paper critically appraises the adequacy of the level and substance of the education and training
that are required to prepare and equip the professional accountants to deal with the changing demands of the
dynamic business environment in Nigeria. The methodology involved the use of library research and a review of
available documentary evidences on the subject matter. The paper points out the previous constraints to
professional accountancy training and development; the need for continuous professional education and
training of professional accountants; the International Educational Standards for Professional Accountants;
and the panacea for professional accountancy education and training in Nigeria. The strong point of
recommendation is that professional bodies in Nigeria should pool resources together to establish a centre for
accounting education and development that is charged with the responsibility to review and assess the current
strengths and resource challenges of the various individual professional bodies and to jointly observe an
intensive program of action that will minimize the challenges.
