Its 13th Annual National Conference

Theme: Accountability, Transparency and Nation Building

  • Arrival: Tuesday September 24, 2019, Departure: Friday September 27, 2019

Objectives of the Conference

Nigeria is currently facing serious corruption quagmire! While everyone seems to agree that corruption is antithetical to the nation’s development, yet, the prevalence of corruption seems to be increasing in intensity and sophistication; arguably, as a result of the continued relegation of accountability and transparency that are pro-development management prerequisites. Consequently, this conference aims to attract academics, policy makers and all other stakeholders to examine the overarching theme of accountability and transparency at firm and national levels as it relates to the management of resources for building Nigeria of our dream. The idea is to generate evidence-based and policy relevant conclusions that could contribute to the elimination of corrupt values and practices that stifle national growth.
