Local Governments Enjoined To Be Transparent

Transparency, accountability, probity and zero tolerance to corruption have been referred to as the hallmark of the success of any organization.

This was stated by the former Chairman Local Government Service Commission Chief Tunji Abolade while declaring open a 3-day workshop titled “Financial Management Service” held today at Local Government Service Commission, Multi-purpose Hall.

Chief Tunji Abolade explained that, the workshop is organized to equip accountants and auditors in the Local Government Service with necessary skills that would make them prudent and judicious financial managers.

According to him, a responsible and responsive government must tackle the issue of finance management in a bid to channel the revenue generated towards the programmes that will be of benefit to the people.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman Local Government Service Commission Dr. Peter Babalola made it known that Chief Tunji Abolade was invited to declare the workshop open in view of his commitment and performance while he was the Chairman  of the Commission.

He stated that, Chief Abolade during his tenure built the Multi-Purpose Hall which had just been renovated by the present Board.

Also in his address of welcome, the Managing Partner Fiderat Consult Mr. Adebayo Adedokun stated that, the training programme will expose participants to the new orientation in auditing, particularly forensic and value for money auditing as well as update their knowledge on the use of basic accounting concepts as a guide in management decision.
