Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has said accountability remains the panacea to the current recession in the country.
Speaking at the 46th Annual Accountants’ Conference of the Institute of Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), in Abuja, the governor, who spoke on the topic, ‘Accountability, A Collective Responsibility’, decried the lack of accountability in the public sector.
He said: “If we have to quickly get out of the recession we find ourselves, we all must be accountable.
“If we are not going to be held responsible for our actions, then everything will collapse. We must be ready to adhere to world best practices.”
Amosun, while also speaking with State House Correspondents after meeting with Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, further stressed that accountability remains the bedrock of governance, private sector and in the professional bodies.
“Accountability is very key. Everybody must be accountable. The major deficit that we have as a nation is that of accountability. Accountability is not just for the government, it is a collective responsibility. Everybody must play their roles,” he added.
